Guyana: President Dr. Irfaan Ali declared that only as a collective unit Guyana could reap the benefits within reach of its people.

President Dr. Irfaan Ali stated that there is no other option than for us to come together, work together, and uplift each other while pulling down the barriers created by racism.

The President, who was addressing racism within Guyana on online broadcasting service Globe Span 24X7, encouraged his audience both at home and abroad that his Government will put all systems in place to be fair and equitable in its delivery.

“This Government is willing and ready to work with every single section of our society. It is the only way we can uplift them. It is the only way we can bring real and lasting changes and transformation in our country.”

The President noted that Guyana’s race problems are multidimensional and systemic and need to be addressed at all levels.

Furthermore, He stated that his Government of Guyana is willing to put the right systems in place to create a united Guyana and that he understands that persons need to feel that they are a part of the system and can benefit from it.

“It (eradicating racism) requires changes at the individual level that comes through education and through an understanding that the society in which you live is looking out for you, that the society in which you live is creating opportunities for you, that you see yourself as an equal participant in that society.”

He reminded his audience that they should focus on mutual respect and similarities that unite us as Guyanese.

“We can build the best roads, have the best health care system, but if we don’t change our mindset. If we don’t respect and love each other’s company, if we don’t understand the concept of being Guyanese, It is the set of values and guiding principles that cement us as a people.”

President Ali reminded the audience that selfish people often use the race card to benefit their agendas.

“There are various persons who consider themselves intellectuals who use this issue of race. They use the issue of race opportunistically. And we have to be able to address this in a very frank and open manner.

Additionally, They intentionally misconceive things and repackage and disseminate them to promote sensibilities of hate and racial feelings. The leader of Guyana initiated a measure to unite the nation.
