Govt fixing its mistakes

The actions of Corporation Sole in the reappointment of the First Citizens board could only be commended. It could be said it acted in the best interest of the country.

One could look at the actions with regard to the Caribbean Airlines board and this incident to recog­nise proper governance is high on the agenda with this Govern­ment.

People may criticise, but they have to be cognisant of the fact you can appoint people but you cannot micromanage their every move.

What is refreshing about this Government is it is willing to own up to its mistakes and make attempts to remedy them immediately.

That is in stark contrast with what maintained before, where people like Calder Hart were ensconced in their positions no matter what they did. It is a challenge, but they are living the mantra “do the right thing because it is the right thing to do!”
