  1. And the lord said, “let there be light” after He created this world. As a child of God let me say “let the Coalition win the national election in Guyana and let the land prosper there after.”

  2. Peace Love & Unity for all Guyanese.
    Together we stand divided we fall. Let us all look toward the goodness the winning party can bring and do with great accomplishment for the people of Guyana.
    Peace & Love.

  3. I am very proud as a Guyanese that finally people has seen the need to be peaceful. We have been praying around the clock and I know God’s hand is upon this country. We have went through the worst situations in Guyana in the 1980’s & unwards but we are fighters & we have survived through vast migrations & trade. May the Right Party win & more so do Good for the future of the Nation. God Bless Guyana.
