‘We have delivered on almost all our promises’ – Ali woos Eccles/Ramsburg voters
The People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is determined to deliver on its commitment to develop the nation with plans for better road networks, quality water, and more public assistance opportunities.
These commitments were reaffirmed by President Dr Irfaan Ali on Saturday during the PPP/C’s final rally in the Eccles/Ramsburg NDC leading up to the Local Government Election on June 12.
Speaking to a crowd at Flambouyant Square, Eccles/Ramsburg, East Bank Demerara, the Head-of-State said in three years, the party has delivered on most of its commitments, and with the support of the nation, it hopes to successfully deliver on all of its promises.
“The PPP/C is refining the people towards prosperity. Look at all the highways we are building; not only the four-lane highway, yes, we know that these communities have been severely inconvenienced with the highways we are building but we are committed to fixing every single road in these communities, fixing the drainage, advancing the development of water,” the President said.
President Ali used the opportunity to remind residents that the PPP/C, compared to A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), has delivered on majority of its manifesto in a shorter time than the opposition did during their time in government. For this reason, the President urged voters to remember that come Monday, their vote determines not only the community development but the overall transformation of the country at large.
“When we vote, we are not only voting for the council, we are voting for the macro-development plans for the country and for this NDC to advance unhindered, if we do not have a local government system that supports the macro-development transformation of the country then where are we going to go?”
He urged residents to work together with the government to ensure that the country’s development and vision are a success. He said that people who are unemployed must find ways to add meaningful contributions to society.
“You have to make the right choice and that right choice requires a change in thinking…You have to get involved, you have to think positive, you have to redirect your energy to be a part of the transformation.
“Lift yourself up from your slumber and get yourself involved with the development of the community, get involved in the development of your country,” President Ali encouraged the residents.
He said that many persons who share the vision of “One Guyana” are making the decision to embrace that change.
