The PNP elder has been facing backlash within the PNP following disclosure that he’s representing the former Petrojam General Manager.

Floyd Grindley has come under fire from other senior members of the PNP.

PNP Chairman, Fitz Jackson and Vice President, Dr. Wykeham McNeil, have strongly criticized Mr. Grindley for his role in the Petrojam scandal.

During a recent parliamentary committee meeting, – another PNP Vice President, Mikhael Phillips, mentioned allegations and demanded that Grindley be locked up.

Our news center revealed on Tuesday that Mr. Knight wrote Petrojam and indicated that allegations made against its former General Manager are false.
