Out-going Georgetown Mayor Pt. Ubraj Narine recently honoured citizens with the Citation Award for their significant contribution to culture, youth, art, entertainment, leadership, and education.
Narine, speaking with Village Voice News said he was delighted to show his appreciation of the diverse individuals for their contributions to the development of Guyana. The award event was held April 20.
According to the mayor, the talents of the honoured individuals are not only evidence of Guyana’s diversity but also representative of the beauty that flows from such diversity.
We are one people, one nation and one destiny, he said, and that too is reflected in our diverse talents, ethnicities, politics, heritage and we must appreciate and celebrate these because we all belong to the human race and should be respected for who we are.
Narine said Guyana must rid itself of the divisive politics and Government must seek to work with the Opposition, at the national, regional and local government levels, for the benefit of all Guyanese.
People are tired of the hate, political division and poverty he shared. If Guyana could only practice the politics of inclusion no other country on earth would be better than us, he stated.
