[www.inewsguyana.com] – APNU+AFC Prime Ministerial Candidate Moses Nagamootoo has warned that the days are nigh for the incumbent People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) and the Party is shaken as the time for General and Regional Elections draws closer.
Nagamootoo made the statement at the culmination of a Guyana Trades Union Congress March on Friday, May 01 celebrating the triumphs of workers in Guyana.
He pointed out that Guyana has ten days remaining for General and Regional Elections and these ten days will be recorded in the annals of history as being the turning point of governance in Guyana.
Nagamootoo said that the PPP/C government is culpable for many of the ills affecting the Guyanese society.
“These were the ten days that shook Guyana…they [PPP] must tremble in these ten days leading up to election,” said the Prime Ministerial Candidate.
He told the many persons gathered that an APNU+AFC government will be “committed to a genuine partnership between the state labour and private sector.”
According to Nagamootoo, while the labour force in Guyana is divided, emphasis will be placed on a unified force pointing out that the labour movement has been weakened by the division.
“Justice must be done for working people particularly working poor people…starvation wages being paid at the moment,” he said.
“Committed to resolving and solving the historical wrongs…we will respect members and cooperatives who had land and who’s land had been arbitrarily taken away…no more should we give land away to friends and cronies to squat on it, to speculate on it,” said Nagamootoo who is aspiring to become Guyana’s next Prime Minister.
Meanwhile, Presidential Candidate, Granger said that APNU+AFC endorse the call by the GTUC for there to be social accord with the trade unions and other stakeholders in the labour force.
He urged the workers gathered at Woolford Avenue to “vote the criminals out” as he noted that under the PPP/C crime has flourished.
“They are not the ones in their gated community affected by banditry, piracy…vote the criminals out…there’s nothing about the government or Guyana which convinces me that they deserve another term,” said Granger.
