Morgan Defends Gov’t Corruption Record


Parliamentary Secretary, Senator Robert Morgan says the JLP is to address reports that sacked Education Minister Ruel Reid’s still doing work in North West St Ann.

Reid who’s embroiled in a corruption scandal was the JLP’s caretaker for the constituency.

But the Party’s General Secretary, Dr Horace Chang, told Nationwide News Reid would no longer be representing the party in the constituency.

Mr Morgan says the party wasn’t aware of Reid’s work after he opted to resign as caretaker.

He says calls by the Opposition Leader for the Prime Minister to fire persons named in recent scandals are also unprofessional.

Meanwhile, Mr Morgan says claims that Prime Minister Andrew Holness isn’t consulting on crime are flawed.
