The Muslim Youth Organization (MYO) which participates in the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) competitions, has extended congratulatory sentiments to Guyana’s newly elected President His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali.
The organization in a press release said: “The Muslim Youth Organization of Guyana believes that the bruising encounter over the past five months which culminated on Sunday (August 2) with the swearing-in, may be considered a manifest victory.”
It added: “Indeed Dr. Ali has triumphed against all odds in becoming the President but triumphalist he must not become. Guyana is much fractured and his (Dr. Ali) first call of duty should be to mend our country.”
The organization pledged its support to Dr. Ali and the new government to ensure that Guyana moves forward to “fully realize its potential.”
The MYO is well known for its numerous initiatives that involve youth. Only recently, it was involved in a countrywide hamper distribution effort to assist persons who were affected by the ongoing COVID – 19 pandemic.
The MYO is one of the few sport bodies to have issued congratulatory sentiments to the President thus far.
