A.P.N.U Presidential Candidate, Brig. (ret) David Granger and A.P.N.U official, Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine, accompanied by Executive Members of the Guyana Youth and Student Movement (GYSM), visited the Bourda and Stabroek Markets on Wednesday 27th July 2011. They distributed fliers and encouraged vendors and shoppers alike to attend the Rally planned for the Square of the Revolution on Friday 29th July 2011.
Both leaders were well received by vendors and shoppers who endorsed A Partnership for National Unity (A.P.N.U). Some vendors used that opportunity to register their complaints about several issues including high cost of living, low market standards and unsatisfactory vending conditions.
A.P.N.U Presidential Candidate Brigadier (ret) David Granger had met with some of the vendors on Tuesday 19th July 2011 who had expressed concerns about the conditions of the markets.
Mr. Granger had emphasized then that vendors played a vital role in the economy and they should be accommodated in improved premises. A.P.N.U has already committed to rebuilding the markets and making them more safe and convenient for both shoppers and vendors when elected as Guyana’s next Government.
Mr. Granger stated “when we get into Government we are going to provide markets that you can be proud of…we are going to rebuild our markets”.
A.P.N.U has invited all interested in national unity, and a good life to join its massive rally on the Square of the Revolution on Friday 29th July 2011. The public was asked to come out in their thousands to rally for change.
