Guyanese from all walks of life turned out in numbers to pledge support for Brigadier (Ret’d) David Granger who is visiting New York and New Jersey days to drum up support for his candidacy for Presidential candidate of the People’s National Congress Reform.
The visit was co-ordinated by a team comprising Aubrey Retemyer, Nigel Pile, Esme Griffith, Bonita Primo, Michael Campbell, Errol Lewis, Morris Wilson, Anita Hicks and Edgar Henry. The group was ably assisted by ex-military officers of Guyana who are living in the tri-state area.
Aubrey Retemyer said that the support for Granger is due to the fact that most Guyanese in the diaspora, especially the ex-military servicemen are convinced that David Granger is best suited for the job.
“He brings to the table the qualities of a scholar, high integrity, organisational experience, leadership, courage, commitment, concern for the plight of the poor and a genuine love for our country.”
The group is also certain that Brigadier Granger has the capacity to unify both party and country.
In his usual humble manner, David Granger thanked all those who attended and pledged to support him. In response to some concerns, Granger said that he would not be interested in vendettas and cannot look through ethnic lenses but would indeed be interested in justice.
He mentioned that he would set up a Commission of Enquiry into the killings which occurred between 2002 and 2008. Granger also promised to make Guyana an equitable society and would, among other things, promote education at all levels.
Also adding support for Granger was a group of persons who hail from the North West Region who are very concerned about their homeland.
One senior citizen in reference to the state of affairs in Guyana now, said that she has to quote from Shakespeare – “three score and ten, within the volume of which time I have seen, hours dreadful and things strange; but this sore night hath trifled former knowings”.
