Andrew Wants Heads To Roll Over Games

Andrew Wants Heads To Roll Over Games

The National Democratic Congress caretaker for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, Tevin Andrew is calling on the powers that be to give marching orders to some officials at the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs over what he says was their poor handling of the issue surrounding the secondary school games.

Andrew who joined the students of Bishop’s College on their march through the streets of Hillsborough chanting –We want sports- says that the ministry should have been involved in proper mediation to ensure that the games proceeded as was planned.

In 2010 two years after the National Democratic Congress took office, both former Minister of Sports Patrick Simmons and Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, George Prime together with the late sports officer, Jester Emmons intervened in the revival of the sport following a chaotic situation in 2004, which led to the suspension of the games for several years.  At the time Brian Lendore who is the current principal of the Hillsborough Secondary School was already the principal back then and while Rosalina Lendore was the acting principal of Bishop’s College. 

“This shows how much we are lacking in leadership on this island.

“The minister (he was out of island), senator Cox and Permanent Secretary Bernadette Sylvester were all absent.

“What a shame, what a shame

“If I had my way all of them would have been sacked. I think the Prime Minister and even the Governor General should get involved in this to ensure that the games remain alive,” said Andrew.

Describing the situation as an embarrassment Andrew questioned what example this is sending to the general public.

He said that many including student athletes, staff, vendors, taxi operators, organizing body, sponsors and the general public are all losing from the non-hosting of the games.

He said that had he been in office as the Member of Parliament for Carriacou and Petite Martinique the games would have been on and going.

Andrew says that everyone involved needs to look at the bigger picture, which is the athlete of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
