Yesterday, addressing an audience at Balisier House, Dr. Rowley recalled a conversation with Mr. Manning in 1977. He said Mr. Manning had advised him never to give up his career.
Years later, he would be drawn back to Mr. Manning, becoming a part of the PNM tapestry. Dr. Rowley said there was a time when an advisor had advised that the party be restructured, with hopes of possibly ousting the leader- Patrick Manning.
He however said in addressing this bit of advice, he made it clear that no where in the PNM’s constitution was there anything that stated such should be done.
