Georgetown, Guyana (December 9, 2020) Residents heaped praises on His Excellency Dr Irfaan Ali today after his swift intervention which resulted in the issuance of Certificates of Title to three Region Two land owners.
The pro-active President made the presentation to the trio during his Presidential Outreach to residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).
All persons who received their ownership documents had been waiting for a lengthy period of time.
Esaun Garraway said that he was given the royal runaround and was unsure when he would have gotten his title.
“I checked the office steady and they kept saying that the title had to come from Town.”
I feel good today, thanks to the Government.”
Mark Thomas, who has been waiting for four plus years, called the moment “a great sigh of relief”.
He said that he was elated to have received the title from the Head of State and is now focused on building his home.
Pratima Devi Sookdeo was also waiting for some time for her document.
She came with the hope of receiving some assistance from the Head of State after her house was razed by fire. The President empathised with the Region Two resident and offered his assistance.
The Head of State met with hundreds of residents today at the RDC office in Anna Regina in Region Two today.
His aim was to reduce the bureaucratic hassle that Guyanese, especially those from outside of the city, face regularly.
The President travelled to the region with representatives from the Office of the President, the Ministry of Housing and Water, the Central Housing and Planning Authority, the Ministry of Foreign affairs and International Cooperation, Guyana Power and Light (GPL), National Insurance Scheme (NIS), National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA), the Ministry of Health, the Guyana Police Force and Regional Officials among others.
This Presidential Outreach comes after a successful venture in Region Six last month.
