– Dubs a vote for APNU+AFC, a vote for betterment
Region Ten Chairman, Sharma Solomon, in a Labour Day message to workers, lamented the hardship the
Region endured because of the polices of the People’s Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C) administration controlled by former President Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo.
He said however, that there is a ray of hope for the Region as well as Guyana under the governance of the A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) coalition.
“We (the people of Linden) have for almost the past two decades, become intensely aware of what it means to be marginalized and shut out from enjoying equal benefits as some communities in other parts of Guyana, and as some workers in other non-bauxite sectors.
“And I do not mean public servants. Save and except a few cronies, families and friends who enjoy nepotism of the Jagdeo and (President, Donald) Ramotar governments, life has been real hard for most of us,” said Solomon.
The Regional Chairman said that Guyana did not know what real hardship was until Jagdeo entered Presidential office.
“Real hardship is not the restrictions on the importation of apples and grapes when nothing can stop a Buxton spice mango, a sapodilla, star apple and papaw.”
He said that real hardship is when the youth of Guyana live in despair, with little or no opportunities to improve their standard of living thus falling prey to “sophisticated criminals of the narcotic industry.”
He added that real hardship is when the youth of Guyana attain a university education but remain unemployed, not even being able to repay their loans.
“Real hardship is when our youth have their private parts mutilated by the state police, when hundreds of families are left to mourn the death of their children and bodies thrown throughout the length and breadth of Guyana in the most gruesome murders.
“(It is) when dozens of business men are massacred in unsolved criminal activities and the state is satisfied with accusation, finger pointing and no crime fighting and solutions,” said Solomon.
He continued, “Real hardship is when Ministers of the government can be embroiled in criminal acts and questionable relationships; Guyana now knows what real hardship is! We now know what an abusive government is. We know what a spiteful president is. And we know what it is like to live under the policies and governance of a young dictator, named Bharrat Jagdeo.”
Solomon said that those who want to avoid another five years of “real hardship” must vote wisely on May, 11 “Get up, do what you have to do the night before. Nothing must stop you…If you have extreme hardship call your leaders in advance so we can make arrangements in advance to get you to the polls so we can vote these lawless people out of government.”
He said that each Guyanese has the power to make a change and “move this country forward under different governance where all Guyanese can unite, and build this nation for the good of all.”
“The APNU+AFC coalition has committed to you that they will listen to you; they will create the enabling environment for jobs; address the broken healthcare and education systems; they will stamp out corruption; look into the plight of the sugar industry; restore law, order and good governance; improve the University of Guyana; improve and expand infrastructures; respect our rights; protect our natural resources; give Guyanese a real shot at building this nation- a nation that will be great and for all to see- as we live our creed of One People, One Nation, One Destiny,’ said Solomon.
