The Aurora Primary and Nursery Schools were recently built at a cost of about $120,000,000 Guyana dollars, followed quickly by the construction of the soon to be commissioned Police Station whose cost is very close to that of the Primary and Nursery Schools. The many Sea Defence projects in the Good Hope / Pomona Neighbourhood Democratic Council, the soon to be constructed Stelling at Supenaam for the speed boats, the many streets that are being upgraded, and the street lights which are being installed are illustrations of the commitment the Coalition APNU+AFC government has been making towards the development of the country.
From my reading and information gathered from the various newscasts and talking to people who reside in other regions, a lot of developmental work is also taking place in their regions. The subject Ministries and by extension the Government must be commended.
A lot has been done, but there is more to be done. The situation may have been bad. It is clearly about consolidating and building, as the leakages and the seepages in most or all areas had to be stopped or minimized by way of legislation approved by the National Assembly. While we may be some distance away from where we would like to be, we are certainly on our way. Yes, we are beginning to see the bright light at the end of the tunnel. Irrespective of which side of the political divide you stand, you will have to agree that positive things are happening in all ten Administrative Regions of Guyana.
