“I had the privilege of working with Lennox on many projects at the Ministry of Housing and Water, the Ministry of Tourism , Industry and Commerce and as President.

As Minister, we worked together on numerous projects- Guyana Festival, Building Expo, GuyExpo and numerous other national events,” President Ali explained.

The Head of State noted too that “his love for culture and country was boundless and unquestionable.
