Please permit a space in the letters’ section of your newspaper to say a little on the above.
The PNC, and I say PNC because we all know that APNU is PNC and AFC is PNC, had been making some calls to shut down some of the regions, and by extension Guyana on the whole, for their selfish political purposes and gain.
Their call was to shut down the region on Monday 6th and Monday 13th September 2021. They asked the many businesses to shut their doors, public transportation not to work, workers not to turn out for work, etc.
I traversed the entire Region 5; that is, from Ithaca to Mahaica, and business places were open as usual. People were at work; public transportation was at work, be it private or public sector; and teachers were at school, etc.
I deliberately stopped in villages that are said to be strongholds of the PNC, viz Central Mahaicony, Belladrum, No.41, Litchfield, Yeoville, No.30, Hopetown, No.5, Rosignol and Ithaca. Almost all of the business places in those villages were open for business.
I can clearly and safely say that even the PNC supporters reject their call to shut down the region.
The entire Region 5 rejected the PNC’s call, and it seems that from now onwards, everything that is being done or called for by the PNC will be rejected, because they only play racism in their politics.
Thank you, Region 5, for rejecting the PNC call.
