Guyana's President David Granger and First Lady, Sandra Granger were given a clean bill of health after undergoing medical examinations in Trinidad and Tobago today, under a Caribbean medical insurance scheme they have been part of for more than a decade.
The medical examinations were conducted at the Good Health Medical Centre at Fitzblackman Drive, Port of Spain.
President Granger and his wife arrived in Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday night.
They will return to Guyana on Thursday.
Guyana's Ministry of the Presidency said Mrs Granger first joined the scheme 28 years ago as a staff member at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, and the President, as her spouse, was eligible to participate.
“The First Couple has been traveling to Trinidad and Tobago for annual medical examinations for over 12 years, long before the President’s entrance into politics. They will both undergo two more days of physical examinations and medical tests as part of their annual medical check-up, which is usually done in August each year,” the Ministry said.
The Ministry of the Presidency said President Granger chose the month of May to do the tests so that he would be in Guyana for the lead up to Local Government Elections, which are due this year.
