[www.inewsguyana.com] – Presidential Candidate of the APNU+AFC Coalition, David Granger told the thousands of supporters who gathered at Whim, Corentyne that his government will protect them from crime which continues to plague Berbicians on a daily basis.
Granger said he will device a crime strategy plan to tackle piracy among other issues since it is the biggest challenge facing the people of that region, citing the crime situation as the reason why businesses are not investing in Guyana.
“I will make you safe, because i am going to establish a Police Force that will care about you, that will answer your emergency calls.”
Granger chastised Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee, describing him as incompetent and uncaring for the many persons that have been affected by the crime situation.
Meanwhile, the APNU/AFC leader also committed not to destroy the sugar and rice industries, pointing out that Guyanese are being misled by the People’s Progressive Party Civic.
“We need your sugar, we need your rice, we need your fish; who doesn’t need fish?” the Presidential Candidate said.
He further noted, “The PPP regarded Corentyne as a vote farm, not anymore.”
