PM Skerrit reported to have signed contract for new university in Dominica during recent trip to Pakistan

PM Skerrit cuts ribbon at opening of law office in Pakistan

At least four online publications in the South Asian country of Pakistan are reporting that Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has signed an agreement with Rawal Institute of Health Sciences (RIHS) to open Rawal International University Dominica here on island.

According to Pro Pakistani, an online business and technology publication, the prime minister and his delegation visited the Rawal College of Medicine and Dentistry at PIES Complex, Islamabad, during their two-day visit to Pakistan.

According to the publication, an event was held “in their honour” to celebrate the opening of the new Dominican university, a joint venture of RIHS Islamabad and the Commonwealth of Dominica.

Dawn Newspaper, reportedly the oldest English-language newspaper in Pakistan reported that Prime Minister Skerrit stated during an address, that he had a special interest in health education.

The paper also stated that Skerrit acknowledged the importance of the Rawal International University Dominica and “furthered his commitment for the project.”

According to a report in the dailyadvent.com, the Co-Chairperson of RIHS, Saleha Khaqan, highlighted the interest and confidence shown by the Dominican government in this new educational initiative while Co-Chairman, Khaqan Waheed Khawaja, gave Prime Minister Skerrit and his delegation the assurance that with the knowledge, skills and experience, his team will succeed in establishing Rawal International University Dominica.

None of those reports mentioned a date as to when this agreement was reportedly signed, however, the Pakistan Observer did post a picture of Skerrit accepting a plaque at the ceremony.

Other online media outlets have also confirmed prime minister Skerrit’s visit to Pakistan as borne out by a headline in E-paper, The Nation, published on Tuesday Oct 11), “Dominican PM inaugurates Saad Ahsan Immigration Law Firm in Islamabad.”

The story states that the Saad Ahsan Immigration Law Firm opened its office in the federal capital, Islamabad and among the special guests was “The Honourable Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit” who they also cited as “the chief guest.”

In its report, The Daily Pakistan said Skerrit cut the ribbon to inaugurate the office of the law firm which is the first company to introduce the concept of citizenship through investment in Pakistan.

It is expected that this relationship between Pakistan and the Commonwealth of Dominica will open new channels of investment and trade for the two countries, the report said.

“The Saad Ahsan Immigration Law Firm and the Dominican government are trying to create excellent business, trade and educational opportunities for the citizens of the two countries. This visit of the official delegation of the Dominican government will prove extremely helpful in highlighting a new positive image of Pakistan in the entire world,” the Daily Pakistan report stated.

On Tuesday afternoon, Skerrit confirmed his absence from the state (which had previously been reported via a press release from the Office of The Prime Minister) with a Facebook photo captioned, “I visited the Dominica Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai over the weekend.”

He has so far has not commented on the reported contract signing of the new university or his presence at the opening of the law firm in Pakistan.

Dominica News Online (DNO) has sought comment from Prime Minister Skerrit on his reported trip to Pakistan through Dominica’s Media Liaison Officer at the Dubai Expo 2020.

    A spider weaves multiple webs of confusion, corruption, greed, theft, incompetence, secrecies, sales of a country, pockets poor peoples money, cares less about the constitution, controls the court system, hospital operations, POLICE FORCE, “evangelical churches and schools, holds prominent business people in his pocket, controls fuel and gas on the island….etc. etc. etc. What case could be brought against such Spider? This web is a maze without entrance and exits. So this is a very smart Spider. It would have to take only one web to catch such a Spider. Remember “Strongman” Manuel Noriega? Well, he got caught in a single web. He also, was a mightier Spider compared to this Slick Baby Spider who is walking straight into its trap.

    ROSS University school of medicine was an American institution and world wide people know how highly rated the American health sector is. Now after the double doctorate dude facilitated the departure of ROSS from Dominca and he promised that it would be easy to replace them he goes to Parkistan to try to bring a no-name medical school from a no-name country to try to fill the void. This sounds like a desperation move so he can point to his base that he kept his promise to replace ROSS. ROSS had been in Dominca for 40 years and was growing. I don’t see many people running to Dominca to attend a no-name medical school. Branding is very important and a no-name medical school is not it. Couldn’t he have gone to Canada, Europe, Australia, or the USA to find a suitable replacement? This is a pie-in-the-sky move. Mediocrity at best.

    To present the Saad Ashan immigration law firm as a new development in the marketing of our CBI programme would be misleading. In fact they appeared on the Dominica Government list of authorised agents of 15 Oct. 2020 i.e. a year ago (between Roots Law firm LLC of Amman, Jordan and Savory and Partners of of Dubai, U.A.E.). The Prime Minister of Dominica would have had to give his approval of this appointment.
    The reason for turning this into a prominent P.R. Excercise, attended in Lahore, Pakistan by mr. Roosevelt Skerrit is anyone’s guess.

    “The Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) on Wednesday served notices to different private and medical colleges across the country over complaints of demanding hundreds of rupees under different pretexts and irregularities in the interview process.
    The commission issued notices to all such medical and dental educational institutions after receiving complaints from aspiring doctors, a spokesperson shared on Wednesday.
    It was learnt that the Rawal Institute of Health and Sciences (RIHS) started enrolling students without publishing a merit list while the Sahara Medical College, Narowal allegedly did not conduct interviews in a transparent manner.”

    So Skerrit got rid of the American Ross University that was here for 40 years, and he brought in Communist China and the Chinese influence is very strong in Dominican, now, he bringing in a Pakistan university, which means the possibility of terrorists, groups like the Taliban and al-Qaeda might be some of the students and probably they will be armed with Dominica cbi passports, and a new nonstop American Airlines flights from Dominica to the US, is Skerrit surrounding himself with enemies of the US to make sure the US stays far from him?

    I know Skerrit said he has always been interested in health and a medical school but since his university is from Pakistan I wonder if Skerrit would also consider putting an aviation class together, so his university students could at least learn to land a jet plane on any US building, if needs be. Remember the aviation school in South Florida where some of the pilots of 911 just wanted to learn to land a jet? Oh by the way most of them were from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia?

    No matter how much you all complain here Mr. Skerrit will continue to dominate Dominica’s politics because those who oppose are not ready. The UWP refuse to realize that there is an issue with its leadership. I have said for years, Mr. Linton’s approach is not working. In addition to this, Alex Bruno formed the APP for all the wrong reasons so we see where this is heading. Finally, the media aspect which was instrumental in improving the UWP situation in 2014 is dead. Loftus is criticizing the government for being intolerant and heavy handed and he does the same thing on his show. If you are not sharing his opinion you are cut off. Generally, the shows have lost their shine. The Hot Seat is no longer a talk show, but rather a string of business promotions. I was an ardent listener but I listen no more. I prefer to listen to a real talk show from St. kitts or Antigua.

    deja vu all over again. I’m reminded of the cake cutting and signing activity and my Dominca trade house. We all know how that went. It turned out to be a total flop. The puppet master, double doctorate dude, seems to think that sufficient time has passed so it’s time for “take two”. Skerritt thought that replacing ROSS University would be seamless and there wouldn’t be much falloff for the economy. With the hammering that the country has taken due to Covid-19 pandemic, I’m sure he wishes that ROSS University was still in country to help ease the economic shock at this time. How many new medical schools so far has the honorary doctorate gone after? You think it’s easy? Next time learn to cherish what you’ve got. Skerritt announced that he was going to take ROSS to court and I’m wondering what became of that.

    Again I call on Roosevelt Skerrit to make known to the world and Dominican people what the hell is in that MOU he signed with China almost 15 years ago.
    Since he is not telling us I have a right to speculate and I would not be surprised the departure of Ross is in there. Somehow I see the finger print of China all over this. By the best as Skerrit was seen in photo without mask, in a country with 1.28 cases of COVID-19 and over 28 thousand covid related deaths, let’s remember that former US president Donald Trump said coronavirus was born in China and today, CNN just reported that all evidence of the birth of Covid points to Wuhan China, but the government is blocking information.

You all would remember two weeks later everyone in the group was arrested and charged for corruption, Fraud and other crimes except Roosevelt Skerrit that escaped simply because he was head of state? Although the date was different but it was a time when Erika was causing havoc in Dominica.
    Well there is no Erika this time but heavy rain is again pouring in Dominica as we speak, and this time the mask less Skerrit is seen in another group from Pakistan. One thing I want to say to Skerrit is that he might have foreign friends following him and they might not be angels. Dominicans don’t be surprised when the news will break this time.

    Now here is my take. So if it is true that Skerrit signed a contract with a Pakistan University, will that not have negative implications on American airline that is supposed to start flying here come December 8? Let’s be blunt about it, I for sure would not fly American to Dominica because that would bring 911 fresh to my mind. Also does Skerrit understand the risk Skerrit would be putting on Dominican? The truth is even cricketing nations are cancelling tours to Pakistan. I won’t say much yet because I really don’t want to believe Skerrit would be that sold out to do evil

    Remember the liar, Skerrit, was also seen some years ago cutting cake with Monfared and signing a document…This man is not just an embarrassingly bad leader and an inveterate liar, his forte is showmanship and brainlessness as well…
    Was he on a passport selling mission in the terrorist hotbed of the world? Remember the first country to embrace the TALIBAN was Pakistan.
    LIAR!!!!

    Mr. Skerrit has no respect for the citizens of Dominica. His overseas travels and signed agreements on behalf of the people/country should be in the public domain before they happen. This is one of the hallmarks of good governance.

    By the way, can the media enquire as to the price tag of this trip by Roosevelt and his entourage to this distant corner of the globe. Can the country get an update as to the cost to tax payers for travel overseas that has been made for this fiscal year by ministers and other government officials?

    ‘Journalist’, come on, do your job. Too many of you sit in your air conditioned offices just being nothing more than stenographers. Enlighten the citizenry with the hard, cold, irrefutable facts. An enlightened citizenry stengthens our democracy.

    By elections coming up so we need some talking points. The personnel from Ross indicated that our leaders did not show a bias to education and as a result left. Any idiot with 1/16 a brain would know that if you have an established client that is contributing significantly to your economy you do what it takes to keep them. Letting Ross go i think was deliberate because a large presence of US citizens is not good for any dictatorship bent on mischief and manipulation of population. Remove the excuse the US will have for intervention. If that is not the case then Skerrit is the biggest fool in the western hemisphere to now try to bring in same business you already had established. No institution leave all they invested so easily. Yet they born labour they die labour even while the leadership show they do not care about the people. Pakistan and India are sworn enemies and skerrit is showing how desperate he is for lack of any vision or ideas after 20 years in government. Sick mind.

    This is precisely what this guy does well. He manipulates media headlines. Everything he promises or signs never materializes. It’s just headline grabbing stunts. Listen to the local and regional media outlets tonight and tomorrow for this news item to feature prominently.

    There was a big song and dance about geothermal energy; international airport; cruise ship village: four universities to replace ROSS; Byron’s electoral reforms; revitalization of Roseau. All these are somewhere in the sky (pie in the sky promises).

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

      I guess you will see the origin of the news so what’s your point media manipulate.? It is high time you guys stop these foolish things. This PM is a Dominican. If he is appreciated, well-liked, or call it what you like, we should be happy, not having fits of envy or jealousy. I am awaiting your picture in France or wherever you are with a feat worthy of mention on the media and to be showcased as well on DNO & /or local media.
      Stop this, concentrate on doing something. Your last comment carries no weight for I do not know if you are really in Dominica. There are no pies in the sky – Geothermal on, Electoral reforms on maybe not in the way you want it to be, Roseau revitalizing slow but sure. (apparently, you are in a part of the world where you are not au courant with present happenings -Covid & did u remember 4 years…

        You very much remind me of people who feed into the propaganda on FOX channel in the US.

        Your daily consumption of Skerrit-DLP red potion has numbed your brain cells. It makes no sense to even attempt to reason with you for you’re no longer rational. Continue to imbibe your poisonous, mind altering cocktail.

    A kid in a candy story is how I would described this accidental PM- All you can eat buffet style Roosevelt using Dominica’s name and its fortunes on his gallivanting trips with his very ‘good friends’ in far away, controversial and trouble spots. They even gave his a plaque- for what may I ask? But the question is: Is this sustainable and if so, for how much longer?
    The Dominican people will have to answer that question sooner or later. But in the mean time Skewo, let the good time role- ‘Keytay bon tai wollay’

      I don’t understand what you mean by a contract in just a two day visit. Do you think that this was initiated when Mr. Skerrit went to Pakistan? No. These things are prepared over months and after much negotiations. The signing is just the formal part of the agreement. And this America thing you all always come up with. Dominica is a sovereign country America cannot dictate with whom they associate. Stop it. I have no issues with the US. I live there and work for the US government but they cannot tell Dominica what to do. They should focus on all there issues up here. We need to end this backwardness. It’s the likes of you who come here and make these people think they are superior to us. Pas mwen.

      @Moi Las – It appears a certain segment of the Dominican populace like horror movies – especially those horror movies where the main character has a dimpled smiley face.

      It is ‘frightening’ to see how gullible some Dominicans are and how easily some of them can be manipulated. 8-O 8-O 8-O 8-O 8-O

      What horror movie? Stop wasting your time disliking, envying, jealous. You can do great things too. Start now. This is no campaigning. One has to do what he has to do. Just like you should look to do something using your God-given talent. Your talent is not to criticize nor hate, envy, jealousy. Your talent is to see what you can do with the life God has given you to glorify & honor who gave you life. Stop wasting it by looking at what others are doing whilst you stand idly by, procrastinating, not seeing what your purpose is.
      I await a more positive outlook on your life. Winston Churchill once said, ” do not ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”. Speaking about those who are utilizing their time, effort & money whilst you seat idly and criticize all that is being done without giving any input or suggestion is terrible indeed. WOOLAY. Woolay. Get moving and groove, do something before something happen to you. We are just passing thru.

      A very good question you have posed; a question that should evoke thoughts and ideas. We all need to realize that the country is in deadly trouble and needs immediate rescue. How do we achieve this end? Everyone who is concerned needs to form a massive group with leaders who can be trusted by the masses, leaders who can command the people’s respect, and who can get the people out in the streets when it is necessary.
      We cannot go on like this. we have lost the country, and the results of a failed government will soon manifest in even worst ways. I have asked you on here before to read the genesis of gangs and violence in jurisdictions such as Trinidad and Jamaica. To give you a hint, government corruption and kickbacks played a major role.
      Please let’s do something. There is nothing I want more than to return home when I retire. I can’t stay out here. Home is home. However, more importantly, my people who live there deserve a society where there is equal opportunity.
