Granger calls on NY diaspora to return home

Speaking to what it said was hundreds of Guyanese last night at the Woodbine Ballroom in Brooklyn, New York, the APNU+AFC alliance today said that Presidential Candidate Brigadier David Granger called on Guyanese in the Diaspora to return home and invest in Guyana.
The Coalition leader said “I am here (in New York) to ask you to invest in change…..Guyana is open for Business.” Granger said, according to a statement from the alliance, that under an APNU+AFC administration Guyanese living in the Diaspora would be encouraged to participate in the development of Guyana.
“We need you, we need your skills and your expertise….. We need teachers, technicians, engineers”, he told the event.
Granger added, “we have lost a lot of our educated professionals through migration and we believe that one of the most important elements of our (APNU+AFC) new policy, would be to strengthen education, Guyana will be an education nation. We will place great emphasis on training Scientists, Technicians, Engineers and Mathematicians……. education is the key to our development.”
The release said that Coalition’s Prime Ministerial Candidate Moses Nagamootoo in his address told those in attendance that after more than fifty years of winner take all politics, it was time for change.
The release said that he recounted the many opportunities for National Unity that the two major political parties in Guyana (the People’s National Congress and the People’s Progressive Party) had squandered and to loud applause the APNU+AFC Prime Ministerial Candidate said; “if it was right then, it is right now and on May 11th the APNU+AFC will win and we will unite Guyana.”
The release said that the event which was billed as a fund-raising reception was organized by the Guyana American Patriotic Forum, a grouping of political and civil society organisations in the Tri-State area.
Today, the APNU+AFC campaign goes to New Jersey.
