PNP-Affiliate Calls for Ferguson to Resign


PNP-affiliated group called ‘ Friends of East Portland’ has issued a statement saying Dr. Ferguson must do the decent thing and resign.

Earlier this week the group issued a statement objecting to the decision of the PNP to choose incumbent MP, Dr. Lynvale Bloomfield over attorney Andrea Moore to contest the East Portland seat in the next election.

This afternoon the group said Dr. Ferguson is a decent man but has failed as both the country’s Health Minister and PNP Vice President with responsibility for Region 2.

According to ‘Friends of East Portland, since his appointment as Minister in January 2012 Dr. Ferguson has presided over the worsening of conditions in the health sector.

    Dr. Ferguson has done no worse than any other health Minister has done in Jamaica. This health system has always been like this and if the country is broke you cannot expect him to make blood out of stone. Also there seems to be political sabotage occurring as inside jobs. Its the people who work in the hospitals are the problem not Dr. Ferguson because they are not doing what they were taught also the management of the hospitals is where the blame lies. They are the ones working there every days with the same careless doctors and nurses
