PPP/C calls for inclusivity in 50th Republic Day message
On the occasion of Guyana’s 50th anniversary as a Republic, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to express best wishes to all Guyanese, both at home and in the Diaspora.
At this point in time, there must be a sense of collective pride as a nation as we observe this Golden Jubilee milestone in self-governance. Hallmarked by the various activities that epitomize the national festival of Mashramani, the imbued pride is manifested through the colourful and vibrant celebrations across the country in a demonstration of patriotism.
The splendor of the multitude of colours splashed to the pulsating beat of the music reflects revelry after hard-work and our rich diversity that defines us as a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural nation.
This 50th anniversary comes at a time when our dear country is about to hold a most critical election which would decide its forward trajectory.
With Guyana on the cusp of becoming an oil and gas economy, we have to ensure that Guyana and all of its people have a fair share of the dividends of oil. The PPP/C has laid out a Plan for Prosperity that will return vibrancy to our economy and generate thousands of jobs. We will also invest significantly in world-class education and healthcare, ensure that our children get more help by increasing the school cash grant and provide help for our pensioners by significantly increasing old-age pension. We urge you to read up on the other measures outlined in our plan.
Let’s work to ensure a vision of Guyana that is inclusive and one which delivers prosperity for all of our people so that we can truly realize the goal of one people, one nation, one destiny as captured in our national motto.
Our Party also takes this opportunity to commend the dedication and efforts of all involved in the various activities held across the country and which will culminate with the annual national costume and float parade.
Happy Mashramani to all Guyanese
