GEORGETOWN, Guyana, February 18, 2020 (CMC) – Dr. Joey Jagan, the son of the late former President of Guyana, Dr. Cheddi Jagan, has called on President David Granger, to continue the development of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
Jagan, who was speaking at a coalition rally, here, late Saturday, made the comment, as he threw support behind Granger in the upcoming election.
In his brief address, Jagan declared his support for Granger, applauding his policies and plans for the development of Guyana.
“I am here because I see President David Granger is a good man. I see in Mr. Granger the ability to carry this country in the right direction. I see Mr. Granger as a leader, who will bring the youths into entrepreneurship.
“Get up, go out… this is a very crucial election, this involves our patrimony,” Jagan urged.
Concerning the regional grouping, Jagan said “We must never give up our Caribbean roots, our Caribbean connections, because that is the soul of our nation. We can’t give it up. President Forbes Burnham saw that and that is why he invested so much in CARICOM.”
“We need small business ventures to flourish in this country, and by bringing ExxonMobil in, we have opened that door now,” he said.
