A very long speech which looked at our history, but no much about what are his plans for the future.
Andrew spoke a lot about “we must” vs “we will” which does not show commitment. He did mention that in order to get out of debt we need to focus on education and implored Jamaicans to invest in education.
His focus was a lot on what was done by the Golding lead government, but very little about what he plans to do going forward. The speech was a bit too long and failed to address the issues Jamaicans were hoping he would have addressed.
The need to end Garrison politics was mentioned but not much about how he will go about doing that.
He threw a few jabs at Portia about saying ” loving the poor” is not enough but instead we should strive to do more to get the poor out of proverty. He tried to touch on every area which made the speech too long and was losing the people in the last 10 – 15 minutes of the speech.
He never made a single promise during his long speech which I am sure would have left many Jamaicans disappointed. Will Andrew be a successful leader only time will tell.
He has asked Jamaicans to join hands and for once put the country before self in the hope to allowing Jamaica to achieve greatness, but can Andrew unite a polarized and fractured people who makes decisons mainly across party lines vs what’ right or wrong.
Well only time will tell.
Welcome to our new Prime Minister and we wish him well.
