President Dr Irfaan Ali has assured residents of Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) that his Government would ensure that they receive the same benefits as citizens who live on the coastland.
During a community meeting with residents of Yupukari and surrounding satellite villages, he said that funds are currently being spent on developing the infrastructure in the region.
“Our primary objective is to ensure the lives of all the people of our country are improved. And whatever benefits on the coastland must be available for you, and we will ensure you too benefit.”
The President told the residents that he and members of his Cabinet were there to lend assistance. “Today, we are here to listen to you, to listen to your concerns, to listen to your ideas, to listen to what issues you might be facing so that we could work with you in finding solutions.”
