A tough task ahead. This is how former National Security Minister, Gary Griffith, describes the way forward for his successor, former Brigadier General Carl Alfonso.
Mr. Griffith is one of several ministers who were axed from the cabinet in an address to the nation by Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar, at the Diplomatic Center, St. Ann’s on Monday night.
Speaking on Power 102.1 FM during a special programme hosted by veteran journalist, Tony Fraser, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Griffith admitted that the portfolio of Minister of National Security is a demanding and challenging one.
He said it usually takes a while for a minister to settle into his portfolio and with this being an election year there is even added pressure.
