Since announcing on Wednesday that she will take over the portfolio for the Ministry of the People and Social Development, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar visited the ministry’s head office at Abercromby Street, Port-of-Spain yesterday and pledged to continue the good work started by her predecessor, Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh, whom she fired.

She met privately with the senior staffers in the board room for about a half hour, after which she thanked them in the presence of the media for their “warm welcome”.

Persad-Bissessar was met at the ministry by Minister in the Ministry of the People and Social Development Vernella Alleyne-Toppin, and Acting Permanent Secretary Simeon Harewood who assured her of the staff’s dedication and commitment to service of the people. A member of staff prayed asking God’s guidance for Persad-Bissessar as she continues the work of the ministry.

In her brief remarks, Persad-Bissessar said the People’s Partnership Government had committed itself to creating a Ministry of the People that would have functioned under the Office of the Prime Minister, but subsequently functioned independently.

“That was four years ago. Now it is under the Office of the Prime Minister, and I look forward to working with you,” she said.

Declaring she would be guiding the staff, she said, “I have been very impressed with the work of this ministry, with the work of the former minister.”

She thanked Ramadharsingh, whom she fired for public misconduct aboard a Tobago flight, “for the excellent work he gave during his tenure in this ministry” and invited the staff to carry on the good work.
