PNCR Chairman and Minister of Public Health, Volda Lawrence today issued an apology over controversial statements she made at a PNCR event on November 25th which included that `jobs would only go to PNC people’.
The apology posted on her Facebook page follows:
My name is Volda Lawrence. Over the last 30 plus years, I have given service to my people and country. I have fought for my fellow countrymen and women known and unknown, irrespective of their class, creed or political affiliation. I have fought for freedom, equal rights and justice. The rhetoric attributed to me over the last few days, is not reflective of who I am as a person or leader. I have learned that as a leader I must be cognizant of what I say and do, and must not allow emotions or political fervour to get in the way. So to all those whom I have offended in one way or another, I humbly apologize. Thank you.
