Reg. 2 residents receive land titles
President Irfaan Ali on Wednesday issued Certificates of Title to three Region Two landowners.
The President made the presentation to the trio during his Presidential Outreach to residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam). Those who received their ownership documents had been waiting for a lengthy period of time.
Esaun Garraway said that he was given the royal runaround and was unsure when he would have gotten his title.
“I checked the office steady and they kept saying that the title had to come from Town. I feel good today, thanks to the government.”
Mark Thomas, who has been waiting for four-plus years, called the moment “a great sigh of relief”.
He said that he was elated to have received the title from the Head of State and is now focused on building his home. Pratima Devi Sookdeo was also waiting for some time for her document.
She came with the hope of receiving some assistance from the Head of State after her house was razed by fire. The President empathised with the Region Two resident and offered his assistance. (Modified press release from Office of the President)
