Mr. Warner said that Abdullah had informed the executive at a meeting that he was being bombarded by agents from other political parties. He reported that those persons had offered him and other ILP members over $250,000 in cash to leave the ILP.
Akil said that on one occasion someone came to his home and emptied $50,000 in cash on a table in front of him. He also spoke of being offered a cheque for $100,000.
Chaguanas West MP said that they were not surprised with reports earlier this week that Mr Abdullah was withholding party information from their campaign teams in Tobago East and West.
Warner assured that the ILP’s campaign in Tobago has not been affected in no way by Thursday’s developments as two other campaign teams led by Mr Paul Peters in Tobago West and Ms Porsher Powder in Tobago East, will continue the ILP’s preparations on the island.
