President Chan Santokhi last night during the National Prayer Service on Independence Square, in connection with 45 years of political independence, called on to continue to pray and work together, so that Suriname will be fine. In his acceptance speech, the Head of State reminded us that we live in a beautiful country and, despite the bad economic situation we are in, we have a lot to be thankful for.
“The reverend clergy have led us in their proper way in paying tribute to the Creator for our 45 years of political independence. For this we are very grateful to them, ”said the president. On November 25, 1975, 45 years ago, Suriname became an independent Republic, marking a turning point in the political life of our nation. Since its existence, the Surinamese population has fought for its recognition and independence.
According to President Santokhi, we will continue this struggle together in unity and continue to build on the foundation laid by our ancestors. “45 years of independence means growth and maturity. And that is why we can say with Surinamese pride: Strey de ‘f strey, wi no sa frede. Gado de wi fesi man. Heri libi te na dede, wi sa feti gi Sranan. ”
