President Donald Ramotar dodged questions about Minister Ganga Persaud leaving office
But today, Clement Rohee, the Minister of Home Affairs and the General Secretary of the ruling PPPP, revealed that the President severed ties with Minister Persaud.
When asked if Minister Persaud was let go because of his involvement with a young female, this was Minister Rohee’s response.
When Minister Rohee was asked to elaborate the current reports of inappropriate behaviour on the part of Minister Persaud, he tried to put an end to such questions.
Rohee was pressed further on the matter at a press conference held at the PPP’s Freedom House headquarters. On repeated occasions, he was about the recent reports that led to Minister Persaud tendering his resignation.
Pressed further, Rohee made journalists repeat the question more than once of whether minister Persaud was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a young female and this led to him being asked to put in his resignation. Minister Rohee preferred to state what the general policy of the party has been regarding wrongdoing.
Asked if Minister Persaud was guilty of any of the offences he mentioned, this was Rohee’s response.
ON Friday, the President did not directly answer whether he had asked Minister Persaud to resign or not.
In the end, Rohee said the PPP was supportive of the decision taken by the Office of the President.
