Dear Guyanese, as we recognise the long and hard path of independence I am buoyed by the dreams and aspirations of those who came before us.
The architects of Guyana’s independence took bold steps to break the shackles of colonial rule and fight for the right to self-determination.
Over five decades later we still have the opportunity to realise the vision of our forefathers, to forge one nation out of many people.
The environment of compromise and communication must be opened for all Guyanese to be a part of building this beautiful nation.
We must take bold steps to deliberately involve all sections of our society as we unify our country and strengthen the bonds of friendship and camaraderie.
Happy Independence Anniversary Guyana.
