Abdulah: I am not
worried about being axed
Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) political leader, David Abdulah, is not worried by speculation that he would be axed as a Government Senator.
Abdulah said yesterday he was not going to engage in speculation and would deal with matters on a factual basis as it arises.
He was speaking to reporters following the Oilfields Workers' Trade Union's (OWTU) 75th anniversary school competition prize giving ceremony at Paramount Building, San Fernando.
Abdulah said, "I am doing what I have to do and I am not worried."
Speculation about Abdulah's future began following Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar's announcement that she would undertake a "reconfiguration" of her Cabinet and the membership of State boards. The announcement was made at the People's Partnership second anniversary celebrations in Chaguanas on May 24.
Three days before the event, Abdulah had announced that the MSJ's political leader and its members would not be attending the celebrations and the party was withdrawing its members from State boards.
Abdulah said he would not be deterred from attending Labour Day celebrations in Fyzabad on June 19, as he was general secretary of the OWTU.
"I am general secretary of the OWTU and I have been participating in the labour movement since 1977," he said.
