PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the recently formed APNU, Brigadier (ret’d) David Granger, along with a team from Region Four, including Regional Chairman, Mr. Clement Corlette visited the Hinterland Community of St. Cuthbert’s Mission on Saturday last.
A release from the APNU camp said Mr. Granger, during his interactions with residents of that community, noted that the APNU partnership has recruited advocates in St. Cuthbert’s Mission to enquire about residents who did not have their source documents and to ensure that voters were not disenfranchised for the upcoming elections.
According to the APNU statement, members of St. Cuthbert’s Mission have also called for better roads to access their community.
The PPP/C government spent some Gy$25 million dollars to reconstruct the very access road to St. Cuthbert’s Mission, a project which began in 2010 and was completed earlier this year. However, the APNU reported that it is now a disaster area of sand, mud, grass and water. “This is now a road on which only heavy duty and four- wheel drive vehicles can traverse,” the joint opposition political party stated.
Mr. Granger also reportedly told residents that hinterland communities should be afforded the same consideration and investment that the PPP/C administration shares with coastal communities.
Mr. Granger also assured the St. Cuthbert’s Mission community that his administration will work tirelessly to ensure ‘A Good Life for All Guyanese’.
