TODAY I write to you to express my gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Irfaan Ali, President of Guyana, for his representation of the interests of developing countries during his address to the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly. I also want to commend all the other individuals who participated in the engagements at the United Nations’ Headquarters in New York, as they have all made Guyana proud.
The President and his delegation were involved in a multitude of bilateral engagements which undoubtedly will bear tremendous benefits for Guyana. These engagements would allow Guyana to improve significantly and for that reason, I call on every Guyanese to commend His Excellency and the others for a job well done. In addition, it is clear that the President and his delegation which included the internationally respected Vice President, Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo, has restored Guyana’s international profile which was severely damaged by the APNU+AFC’s incompetent, corrupt management of the country, as well as by their transparent attempt to rig the March 2, 2020 elections, an act that received international condemnation.
Guyana has not seen this amount of interest before at the level of the United Nations and as such, efforts should be made in every regard to lend support to our leaders as they continue to work in our interest. We are positioned for much success and to become a global powerhouse. President Ali’s speech alone at the UN shows that we are a strong nation with our priorities in check. I think it is time for us to work along with our government, so that Guyana can be all that we want it to be.
