Meanwhile, Minister within the Office of the Prime Minister with Responsibility for Public Affairs, Kwame McCoy stressed that the government has continued to show its unwavering commitment to developing the lives of citizens across the country.

“The government has continued to show excellent leadership and so you the people of the country don’t have any doubt about where the monies that we are getting from revenues are going because they are being spent back and invested on our people,” Minister McCoy posited.

He encouraged the contractors to employ persons from right within the various villages so that they could help in the development of their communities.

“We not only build roads, schools, and bridges. We connect with you in the most important ways outside of these public infrastructures. We connect with you day-by-day, sitting in communities and discussing your ideas and thoughts,” the Public Affairs minister told the residents.

Since the administration took office in 2020, over 4,000 roads have been constructed along the East Bank of Demerara, paving the way for improved accessibility. (DPI)
