Granger reiterates need for cohesion

President David Granger on Sunday attended the launch of the new Guyana Islamic Trust (GIT) Secretariat and ISA Islamic Elementary School building on East Street, Georgetown, where he emphasised the need for national cohesion.

“We are holding ourselves back because of that failure to come together to achieve that goal of national cohesion,” a Ministry of the Presidency press release quoted Granger as saying during his address at the launch.

Granger also said although Guyana has a strong history of religious tolerance, it has, however, taken a long time to begin the healing from the divisions of the past. Against this background, the President said, “Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary observances must be a time when the country celebrates a second independence, one that marks the healing of the nation.”
