…Cabinet governed well in his absence – PM
President David Granger has expressed his “profound” gratitude to his Cabinet members, staff and the rest of the nation for their support, prayers and
well wishes for his complete recovery.
Yesterday morning, a welcome home and prayer ceremony was at State House, the official home of the President.
“Thank you for your expressions of concern over the last three weeks… Throughout that time, I received greetings from you all and from other well-wishers and, more than the greetings, prayers and I am truly grateful,” he said.
The President also expressed gratitude to Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Carl Greenidge for continuing to govern seamlessly, during his absence.
Prime Minister Nagamootoo said that the nation was pleased to welcome the President back home and assured him that his Cabinet and members of the National Security Committee worked to ensure that the country continued to be governed well in his absence.
“We have never been more cohesive, more purposeful, than we have been in these last few weeks,” he said.
The service, which was organised by Minister of Social Protection, Amna Ally, also included the recitation of prayers by Central Islamic Organisation’s Director of Education, Shaikh Moeen-ul-Hack; Representative of the Guyana Pandit Ubraj Narine and Full Gospel Assemblies of God, Pastor Winston McGowan.
On Tuesday evening, President Granger and his wife, Mrs. Sandra Granger returned to Guyana from the Republic of Cuba after spending approximately three weeks there.
The President travelled to Cuba on October 30, 2018 to undergo a medical investigation.
While in Cuba, President Granger was diagnosed with Non- Hodgkins Lymphoma, a form of cancer, after an intensive series of tests by specialist doctors at the Centro de Investigaciones Medico Quirugicas (CIMEQ) in Havana.
Given the diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the President’s Medical Team has performed a number of medical interventions including the first round of chemotherapy treatment.
The President has responded well to the treatment and was given approval to return to Guyana, the Ministry disclosed.
An official photo of President Granger at the Timehri airport, being greeted Tuesday evening, showed him wearing a face mask.
