Granger promises better representation for Guyanese
To loud cheers and applause, hundreds of Guyanese welcomed President of Guyana David Granger to Bubba’s Sports Bar this morning for a breakfast meeting before his return home.
Declaring “it looked like Georgetown”, Granger said the meeting was an “act of thanksgiving” for the election of his government in the May 11 vote.
Granger preached a message of integration, saying it was not an academic term.
Insisting there was no difference between Barbadians and Guyanese, he urged Guyanese to embrace and be proud of the integration movement.
“We need the integration movement. If we are divided, people will pick us off one by one. If we are divided , people are going to separate us,” he said, while boasting that Guyana had “enough room to accommodate its Caribbean neighbours and
still have room left over.”
Granger promised that his government intended to fast track Guyana’s economic development so that the region could benefit.
“We are going to build one of the strongest economies in the world,” he said, noting that they couldn’t do it without the help of its Caribbean neighbours.
Granger also promised the crowd that he would provide better representation for Guyanese abroad and he challenged them to invest more at home.
“We are going to control all of our resources and make sure that Guyanese will never have to be poor again. We know there are issues affecting you and we have to give you better representation,” the president acknowledged.
