Dominica: Dominican Prime Minister Dr Roosevelt Skerrit, along with the Parliament colleagues, joined the meeting on the Good Hope Road project in Castle Bruce on previous Thursday, April 15, 2021.

PM Roosevelt Skerrit declared that the Good Hope Road project’s credit goes to the Parliamentary Representative, Octavia Alfred, during this challenging time. 

“This is really an extraordinary time, and we want to thank god for his countless blessings. When good things happen, we must acknowledge god for it, and we cannot play biased politics for everything happening in Dominica. When I hear some people speaking bad things about this road project, I say, father lord, please pardon them; they don’t know what they are telling,” stated PM Skerrit.

Furthermore, PM Skerrit added that our government is hearing people in many nations are not being paid or getting laid off, and here our regime is discussing the 849,919 road project. “In any money, this is a lot of capital, especially during the period of this pandemic-coronavirus. A total of $67 million would be paid in the Castle Bruce constituency. Additionally, our government have another emergency shelter project worth $18 million.”

Besides this, the People of Castle Bruce were among the first receivers of the housing initiative to build climate-resilient apartments and homes, as 126 obtained homes during the initial days.

“I give you the promise that you will see very shortly heightened activities that we are doing as shelter is concerned in this (Castle Bruce) constituency. As I know, many of you are anticipating their house,” stated PM. The road project would increase the safety of users.

While discussing the people who are criticising the government over various development and welfare projects, the prime minister asked people to beware of such people. He said that some people of our country do not want senior citizens to get the money, they do not want a house for each family in Dominica, yet they intend to lead us. “You can only lead people if you first love them because the greatest gift of all is love, and to love people, you must understand how they live, you must be able to empathise with them, and you must put yourselves in their shoes.”

PM Roosevelt Skerrit discussed Education topic in the nation. He stated that Dominica’s children could not attend secondary school because their parents are not able to afford to send their children to schools.

“Government of Dominica is to introduce transportation programme for every single child of Dominica to school and home at no expense to the parent,” PM Skerrit declared.
