Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo stepped off a Caribbean Airlines aircraft yesterday to a warm welcome by ministers of government, family, friends, and well-wishers at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri.
The Prime Minister returned home following a successful heart bypass surgery in the United States of America and immediately resumed duties upon his return. He was accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Sita Nagamootoo and eldest daughter, Maria Nagamootoo.
A prayer breakfast attended by President David Granger and First Lady Mrs. Sandra Granger was hosted at the PM’s residence. The event saw remarks from Minister of Social Protection, Amna Ally, Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan and Minister of Natural Resources Raphael Trotman.
The government ministers all expressed pleasure at the PM’s return and recommitted to ensuring that his health and well-being are a top priority for the government.
Minister Ally said, “Prime Minister, I want to say to you, that you have to take it one day at a time, we love you, we treasure you, and we want to have you for a long, long time.”
Ramjattan noted that the Prime Minister’s expertise and sharing of experiences were greatly missed while he was away.
“The advantages of having you in our midst and the fact of having your remarks at Cabinet, Parliament, the AFC meetings and security meetings among others, were all highlighted in your absence,” Ramjattan stated.
In his remarks, Minister Trotman said Government looked forward to Nagamootoo’s presence in Parliament.
“We say to your wife and family, thank you for taking care of him, thank you for bringing him home to us, and we will not fail you. We have a duty to take care of him and we will not let you down and we will not fail you, Sir,” Trotman stated.
Prayers were offered for the PM and his family by Reverend John O. Smith, Sheik Moeenul Hack, and Pandit Chateram Pooran.
