Aug 05, 2020 Letters Comments Off on It is up to us as citizens to demand what is best for us and future generations
Five years ago, we were in this same situation as we are in this day. The hope of a better and inclusive Guyana made many Guyanese excited about our future. Even the air felt a bit fresher. My hope is that five years down the road we will not be in the same situation we have found ourselves in. While formal power is given to those that are elected, it is up to us as citizens to demand what is best for us and future generations, we should do this every day and don’t wait until the next election.
A country’s development should not be built on the foundation of politics. Politics is used to achieve power but it should not be used to govern a nation. If that mistake is made, whatever is achieved will sooner or later come crashing down. The purpose of all government employees is to serve the entire Guyana, not just a section of the population. Those that have invested their resources into political candidates should understand that their reward is not to have personal return on investment but rather a better Guyana for all.
We owe it to this dear land of ours to speak out against corrupt practices and activities that will destroy the bright future that awaits this nation. We should support each other by calling things as they are and not what we want them to be. The leaders of this country should not be allowed to trample on this nation, they should not be allowed to do as they please. We should hold together, and put aside our political differences until the next election, until then, let’s see things objectively. We don’t have to agree because we voted for the government and likewise we don’t have to disagree because we have voted for the opposition.
Should we continue on this path of blindly following our political leaders, this country will never see a transformation that is needed. There is a need for politics in every nation, but there is a time and place for such, it’s called the elections. That is over and therefore let us move on as One People, One nation and One Destiny.
