91 Reg. 2 residents receive land titles
Ninty-one residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) received their long-awaited land titles on Wednesday, following a promise made by President Irfaan Ali during his recent presidential outreach to the region.
At that time, the President aimed to have 80 titles distributed this week to persons who were waiting for years.
On Wednesday, Minister of Housing and Water, Collin Croal and his junior Minister, Susan Rodrigues, returned to distribute the titles to residents, but due to extra work, instead of 80 titles, the ministers were able to deliver 11 more.
Minister Croal told the gathering at the distribution exercise that the current focus of his ministry is to provide efficient, timely and sustainable housing solutions for all Guyanese, in keeping with the manifesto of the People’s Progressive Party Civic.
Minister Rodrigues also urged the recipients to make the best of their allocations and said that there is much more to come in the housing sector over the next five years.
The two ministers were also expected to facilitate one-on-one sessions with residents, as well as a group session to answer queries and questions relating to housing issues. (Extracted and modified from Office of the President)
