Beauty, joy and growth in 2023

Dear Editor,
The year 2022 has highlighted the beauty and glory of Guyana. We have truly been blessed to have our wellbeing sought after by a most gracious and caring Government, and we are truly grateful.
Our President, His Excellency Dr. Irfaan Ali, and our Government and its committed Ministers are continuously working to bring relief, joy and goodwill to our people and nation. We truly have the unwavering support of the Government; we have received support in the form of cash grants, school cash grants, and support for agricultural losses, food sustenance, and medicines.
We call upon the political powerhouses: the Government and the Opposition, both of which have hearts of love for Guyana and all our people, to continue to work for our people and nation. In this respect, we, the Guyana Islamic Forum for Education, Peace and Religious Solidarity, the Electric Mosque’s Presentation of the Teachings of Islam, in association with the Universal Peace Federation – Guyana, take this opportunity to extend a Happy New Year to His Excellency President Dr. Irfaan Ali and family; distinguished members of the Government, the Opposition, and all our Divine brothers and sisters of Guyana.
So, as we usher in the New Year, 2023, let’s do so knowing that, as a people of this great nation, our determination and strength know no bounds. We are ready to grasp all opportunities that await us as we enter 2023. We hope that, with sound management and administration, our resources can be handled sustainably, thereby creating a multitude of opportunities for improving the lives of our people, and modernising our nation like that of a First World country.
We believe that the beauty of joy and growth can truly be magnified with thoughts of positivity, love and wisdom. Our people yearn for the cooperation of our leaders, in order for us to truly galvanise ourselves and magnify our personalities into a true concept of the One People, One Nation, One Destiny philosophy.
