No father or mother of the nation – Granger
Who planted the seed of nationhood? There have been claims and counterclaims and alternative claims but never agreement on the father or mother of Guyana.
On Friday, opposition leader, David Granger said there was none. “There is no ma or pa for independence here,” he said bluntly while giving the inaugural lecture of the National Assembly’s Governance and Democracy lecture series. “There is no father of the nation, there is no mother of the nation and I think we need to unlearn this myth.”
