Tobago faith-based community joins call for autonomy

by | Jun 17, 2014

TOBAGOThe Tobago House of Assembly says representatives of the faith-based community are in support of The Forum’s initiative to get full autonomy for the island in the shortest possible time.

The representatives participated in the eighth consultation hosted by The Forum on the topic at the Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities Lecture Room recently.

Head of the People’s Pentecostal Church , Pastor Glenroy Frank , said political parties have been the culprits in determining self government for Tobago.

He said it was politicians who had to take Tobago’s self-government issue to the parliament.

Pastor Corin Parris of the Faith Miracle Centre, Canaan said he was concerned about what kind of system is being put in place by the pioneers of this process to ensure a culture of good governance.

Pastor Ryan Nelson of the Abundant Life Mission said the federal system of government there was a good model and can work for Tobago.

Kameel Ali of the Tobago Muslim Organisation said while he was in support of full autonomy for Tobago, The Forum should hold a referendum to determine whether residents were of like mind.

A similar consultation will be held for farmers, Fisherfolk and community based organisations at the Roxborough Secondary School today at 5 p.m.
