‘No crisis here’: Dr Keith Rowley

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has defended the two latest appointments in the corporate State sector, saying that the Petrotrin boards were now better than any other in Trinidad and Tobago.

The appointment of Newman George, a personal friend of the Prime Minister, as chairman of Paria Fuel Trading Company Ltd and Guaracara Refining Company Ltd, and Michael Quamina, one of Rowley’s personal attorneys, as chairman of Petrotrin Holdings Company Ltd and Heritage Petroleum, has generated criticism because both men have never worked in the oil sector.


THE first tremor of an earthquake within the People’s National Movement (PNM) Tobago leadership took place last night, when Tracy Davidson-Celestine became the first female political leader of the PNM’s Tobago Island Council, dethroning Kelvin Charles in the historic run-off.
