IT was quite an interesting Friday and Saturday recently as His Excellency Dr Mohammed Irfan Ali, his Cabinet and their technical officers made a government-at-work event in Region Two. This is very commendable to see our elected officials hard at work on location and delivering on some of their promises. What was more commendable was that we were able to follow their work in progress on live TV (RCA) and on radio.
Radio Essequibo came alive for the first time as we followed the various activities almost in real time, of the President and his ministers. Neaz Subhan and Nazim Hussain must be commended for their excellent work done on TV and radio for bringing alive this historic visit by the government.
It was fascinating to hear from Dr Frank Anthony, Mr Zulfikar Mustapha and other ministers telling us about their achievements and future plans for us in Region Two. I do hope that this will not be a one-off radio activity by this fairly new radio station and that plans will be in the pipeline to bring quality local content which will be informative, educational and entertaining. Congratulations to the team of Radio Essequibo for bringing to us government at work in almost real time.
