PM Skerrit stands firm amidst calls for his resignation

The Prime Minister is showing no signs that he will resign

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has made it clear that he is standing firm even as the opposition United Workers Party is heaping pressure on him to resign.

With its slogan, “Skerrit must go,” the UWP held two public meetings on Thursday as it continued its campaign, saying the Prime Minister must go on allegations of corrupt practices

However, Skerrit is not budging.

“I say to them, Skerrit must go on to build a new hospital for Dominica,” he said at a town hall meeting in St. Joseph on Thursday night. “Skerrit must go on to build homes for the people of Dominica. Skerrit must go on to create opportunities for the youth of our country. Skerrit must go on to build the five-star hotel for Dominica. Skerrit must go on to build the geothermal plant to bring cheaper light bills for our people in Dominica.

He noted that he will go on to continue raising the money required to bring a better way of life for Dominicans.

“Skerrit must go on to build homes for the people who lost their homes during Erika,” the Prime Minister said. “And Skerrit must go on to be as humble as he has always been. Skerrit must go on to continue loving the people of Dominica and Skerrit.”

Then the Prime Minister took on a spiritual tone.

“And when the going gets tough Skerrit must go at the feet of the Almighty God for help, guidance, and strength,” he said. “And Skerrit must go in 2037 when he gets to age 65.”

He then added, “If it’s really go they want me to go, ladies and gentlemen, I may very well stay there with the help of God and the people of Dominica until my son Dmitry start making children.”

    Woe unto Dominicans that think Skerrit has their interest at heart..never trust a horse who speaks out both sides his mouth and whistles down the middle..Look at the state of Dominica after 17 years..
    Everything is turning into charity because so many people can least afford basic necessities..Salaries are at a stand still because the economy is not expanding at all. Exports have dwindled significantly..
    Skerrit has ensured that he has mastered the art of deception. He has placed himself as a figure central to addressing every aspect of Dominicans needs..if Dominicans don’t wake up, he may be right to stay in power till Dmitiri starts having children to replace him..What an insult in the face of Dominicans…speak about the lack of commonsense and decorum in the office of Prime Minister..how does a country endure such a sorry excuse of a man for Prime Minister?..it’s clearer to grasp when the so called intellects calls a man with an honorary plaque Dr…What an embarrassment!!

    DNO, if you wish you could post this as a commentary. Thank you immensely for allowing it in whatever manner you so wish.
    I keep busy but I try to take the time to access DNO for obvious reasons. :)
    I must add here, I love the set up of your Website which is why I am also hooked on it. :lol:
    The food/menu advertisements look delicious and are tempting. Interestingly I observed some are imported. :)
    I love being informed and to be informed. Your Website is an excellent source for this which is greatly appreciated. You are doing your best. No complaints here. :)
    All of us have our Political Party preference and we must respect each other’s preference and views, also on other matters
    I look for the good actions which benefit all D/can residents. It is also maturity and broadmindedness to be free to agree and disagree amicably.
    God bless! Have a great day/evening.

    An open writing to the Honorable, Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and in favor of him, also for the benefit of fellow D/cans, especially residents.
    Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Leader of Dominica Labour Party, I have been following your political actions for some years especially after the last election and noted all what you have done for D/ca in general which is pleasing to your supporters. More so, pleasing to God.
    I have concluded you are on the right path as you also assist, especially the needy, to elevate their manner of living, for a better and comfortable life.
    The good, just and broadminded know nothing happens before its time and all things take time. We have personal lives and we should know that. Furthermore, to strive to do anything and to achieve it requires money.
    It takes much to build/rebuild a country especially after hurricanes and storms. The pressure is on you to do so. Under the circumstances you are doing all you can.

    If what you are presently doing, over and above were done in previous years, long before you were Dominica’s PM, many D/cans would not have been eager to leave their beautiful, tropical country; some, their jobs, comfortable homes and environment for other shores. They would have remained, to work and to build up D/ca’s economy which would have helped enhanced it in many respects. All will agree that especially in those days D/ca lost much and a brain drain.
    The CBI Program is doing more for D/ca than ever before, more than any previous government ever did.
    Your enemies have something serious and desperate to worry about because of what they observe you are doing. This one fears losing it all, his political status and that you will also take away votes from UWP.
    Hatred and envy is causing him to do what he is doing. Enemies of every nature cannot stand to see any good that is done and to be done.
    If these critics prayed and more they could do much for D/ca.

    Prime Minister Skerrit, in my estimation, you do not deserve all this pressure and flack that the opposition is laying on your back.
    Let the imperfect change their imperfect mannerisms. God knows them, hears them and is taking note of their adverse, dangerous and destructive actions to all Dominican residents.
    The realistic Dominicans who reside abroad fully comprehend your situation. Take heart and be consoled that we are with you and also in prayers. May God assist you to achieve all your great, enhancement plans for Dominica.
    May all Dominicans give this due consideration.
    I am a concerned Dominican. Whether I reside abroad, I want what is best for Dominica and nationals. I am always happy to read, on DNO, your plans and achievement for Dominica.
    We who reside abroad have not given up on our beloved country. From time to time we will be visiting. Obviously, when we do, we would like to be happy, peaceful and comfortable in our primary God-given Country.

    Educated and broadminded D/cans do not waste their God-given allotted precious time on negative critiques and consistent ones at that These do absolutely nothing to assist any situation and D/ca for that matter. Generally, we are to build, not destroy.
    Wherever we reside, we must do all the good we can for our country. God will not exempt us nor exonerate us from it. It is time (more than) for the critics to perform good actions for our beautiful country, Dominica which God granted us with. There are various ways of doing so.
    Let us love one another as our Lord, King, Savior and Master has taught and commanded us.
    God bless Dominica with His protection and peace.
    God bless especially all Dominican residents.
    God bless the Prime Minister and his Cabinet to also doing as much as they could for Dominica and also the needy.
    I do believe that this was written under the inspiration of praying and then playing Holy Songs for my family and I, this Sunday afternoon.

    EARL WILLIAMS – had to resign as UWP Leader and flee Dominica after FACTS of him fleecing two clients of close to half million dollars emerged from the victims.. RON GREEN – an otherwise quiet “good” guy who nonetheless SHOCKED Dominicans when ADMITTING IN COURT that he had contested the 2009 elections again as a “double “ citizen, precisely the so-called CRIME he took Roosevelt Skerrit to court over (what hypocrisy!). LENNOX LINTON – will likely go down in history as Dominica’s MOST SUED politician for defamation, not to mention having to PAY the most compensation to Dominican citizens. With THAT pattern of bad UWP leadership, I will continue to support the COMPETENT leadership of Roosevelt Skerrit.

    As an intelligent voter, before calling on Skerri to quit, I would ALSO look at the alternative government that is proposed. Are they not likely to do the SAME re CBI (remember recent SUN newspaper expose – the admissions by Edison James) When I look at the current leader of the UWP and even the past ones,, and given the general attitude of ALL POLITICIANS, we have to consider who is MORE LIKELY to do a better job as the National Leader of our country . While I agree that Skerrit has for some years faced allegations of “corruption” (all denied and ALL unproven…) – the leaders of the UWP, in contrast, have ALL in COURT or by their OWN ADMISSION been found GUILTY of acts of MAL-PRACTICE!!! Consider: EDISON JAMES – around 2002 was found guilty by the courts for lying on a former Prime Minister; more recently admitted to the SUN newspaper his own party’s early attempts to abuse the CBI .. EARL WILLIAMS – had to resign as

    Why is UWP trying to cause chaos in DA?
    election is over you lost, campaigning season is done, Linton and his one or two pal reps should concentrate on doing work in the communities/constituencies they represent because they will certainly loose them. its labour who rebuilt those communities after Erika and its labour who worked to obtain the funding from China for the hospital in Marigot!

    I don’t understand what reality UWP living in but it seems they just want to see DA in miser and chaos… every bit of progress they seem to be against it and even trying to politicize toilet paper!

    Dominicans need to wake up and stop take sides for these politicians. Look out for yourselves and families. Skerrit do not care about the people of Dominica.

    PRIME MINISTER, DOMINICA IS NOT FOR YOU…SO GO ON UNTIL YOU CRAZY.

    Skerrit, you had 14 years to do that. You have wasted so much money and time. You want to do everything for the people; people need to be empowered to do things for themselves. Help create an environment of economic growth then people will be empowered to earn. That way they will build their own home. I am waiting to see these Five Star Hotel you are talking about completed, like the Morocco funded hotel.

    Please be reminded that this is your last term in office. The writing is on the wall.

    With all the pressure for scare-it to go/resign, if he had done his best in honesty and transparency, he would have already step down. But he is scared to do so; knowing full well he may have to face legal proceedings for some of the careless or dirty deals in his administration. Furthermore, one must not use the office of the PM to enrich him/herself. He should have to answer and give an account for all his millions. I would have the same problem with Linton or any head of state who has fleeced my beloved Island. He will not step down willingly, and that’s for sure.

    Time to stop the politics and evaluate our goal as a people and if the labour government has to go so be it and if not then so be it. the money doesn’t belong to the government the money is Dominica money at the end of the day the same money will be there more of less. My advice is to unite and do what is right for the future. The government is accountable to the people and not the other way around the government is Just overseer of the people’s resources and money so stop the politics and make a decision. LCR

  30. Such arrogance, who do you know you will get to sixty-five. In proverbs it is said the old must; while the young may! Translated into old and aged people must (will) die, while the young can die also. In recent months I’ve seen younger teenagers die more than old.

    I had a grandson died at age two, got ran over by a principal of a school driving no more than 35 miles per hour; one of my sons died last year, shortly after that a cousin of my children hung himself, tired of living, they were all younger than I am; how do Skerrit know what is in his destiny?

    Skerrit believe that God is on his side. No human alive can determine if God is on his side. What I am very sure of is that God do not play politics, nor take political sides. If God was involved in what is going in Dominica, the survival of the nation would depend on any corrupted dealings such as the selling of diplomatic passports.

    God said in his words, talking to believes in him I am the Lord who gives you, I am the…

    • Continue:

      God said in his words, talking to believes in him I am the Lord who gives you, I am the Lord who heal you; I am the lord who make people rich! The way I stated it will not be found verbatim in the Bible, but he never told any nation or people that government will build you a house, or build you ten hotels.; So if Skerrit believes that God is in his politics of corruption, he might as well wonder if the devil is not in his game. By the sweet of thy face you shall eat bread.

      If there are no industries, how shall one work to get money to buy bread. What does then bible say am but if a man do not work they should not eat, and he is worst than an infidel! God never intended for any human to sit on their behind and depend on any politician to find them a place to live, or give them food to eat. And this crap he speaks about building hotels, that only happens in socialism, and communism. That he is trying to exalt himself to the level of God, but Skerrit you are to…

    • Finally:

      Skerrit is trying to exalt himself to the level of God; but Skerrit you are too short! You are the Roosevelt Skerrit who said a few years ago when people ask God for something, and he take long to give it to them, when they come to you; you gives it to them right away, that Skerrit is exaltation, Satan tried that and was kicked out of heaven, and became the god of this earth, causing politicians to be corrupt!

      God is not in any thing political that you do; I do not know about your personal relationship with him, however I do not believe he is in your politics; that is why Jesus said Render unto Cesar, the things that are Cesar, and unto God the things that are God’s: Cesar was a Roman politician!

  31. Solomon The preacher
    March 31, 2017

    Skerrit has every reason to say what he is saying because of the following: I like UWP but their strategy is wrong. I understand the importance of election reform and they should push for it. But what is their winning plan in the event we don’t get it like last three elections? No doubt a reform would give uwp a crushing victory and that’s why uwp should have been pushing a day after the last election. Plan B, In 2009 labor won by wide margins in Roseau south and North. In 2014 uwp won overwhelmingly​ without reform. What was different was the strategy of Joshua and Lugay. Maybe we need to see what they did and learn to implement them in Roseau Valley, Mahauult, St. Joe, Castle Bruce, La plane, Morne Jayne and Carib territory. Change the strategy so we could win with or without reform as Joshua Francis has been saying.

      You compare the PM to these men? You project your ignorance and stupidity. If he were like these men, you would not have been able to make this comment.
      You, do you know when you will die? You people think that today and tomorrow belong to Lennox and yourselves and nothing will happen to you.
      As far as I can see, based on your comments, all you supporters as Lennox are evil. You have evil hearts. What you wish for another could very well fall on you and soon enough.

      Fervent prayer will root out all evil. I am certain this is what the PM meant.
      You do not scrutinize wicked Lennox words. You should do so. If you did you will realize the type of wicked man he is. The good people can see through him, his tactics and evil action. What else will he not say and do?
      I hope the Dominica Law Enforcement is keeping a keen eye on Lennox and you his supporters.

    I don’t believe Skeritt understands why Dominicans wants him out of office. O.k, he has done all these wonderful things, but all these things he has done are erased not only by the struggling of the economy, not only by his bad leadership of the country, but certainly by the manner he has disgraced the name of Dominica internationally. According to Mr. Linton, “show me your friends, and I will tell you, who you are,” and if Skeritt can tell Dominicans that the diplomatic passport scandal now facing Dominica is priced more then the so called things which he claimed to have done even though he was elected to do, is ok, so be it. If my daughter was to be dating a man of bad character, regardless to whatever he gives or done for her, the safety of my daughter would be very important, also the protection of the family’s name. Therefore any leader political or otherwise who can bring his country’s name into disrepute like Skeritt did, should immediately be removed from…

      Who said “Dominicans” want him out of office? You think so. Do you not know that in a country not everyone supports one Party? All Dominicans are not as stupid as you are. You people make the PM out to be an ineffective one whereas the problem lies with Lennox and you followers.
      You act as if you are following Satan to Hell. Lennox is not a fair and just person. His heart is filled with hatred for the PM who has done him nothing wrong. You better be fair and just and promote peace and unity in Dominica. Hell consists of those who failed to do so.

    • April 1, 2017

      Not Dominicans, the opposition UWP wants Skeritt to go. Last time I checked the UWP is not Dominica. And how has Skeritt disgraced Dominica? Again more talking points based on wild and unproven allegations. I believe that the UWP have disgraced Dominica with their propaganda and using foreign operatives like Rijock and Copley to tarnish Dominica’s name. Could you name me one country that has officially complained about Dominica’s activities in the world, I have not heard of one so please help me out.

        I agree with you one hundred percent. This is LL strategy to keep the $$ coming in. He is all about getting his supporters especially in the diaspora (those who can’t come to DA to vote) to continue to send the $$ into his account.
        I believe Parliament should enact a law whereby any time “DOMINICA” is used for personal financial gain, a fee/percentage should be paid to the Dominica Treasury or needs Parliament’s approval. The only exception for the use of “DOMINICA” is for promotional purposes only. This is just a thought for some $ for the treasury.

    Does the Dear Leader believe that he is the only hope for redemption for Dominica? That he is the only one who can build homes, five star hotels, hospitals etc for the people of Dominica? Psychologists say that people with narcissistic personalities always believe that they are the only ones who can do things. Why should we voluntarily become like Zimbabwe where it it alleged that the 92 year old president there believes he is the only one who can rule that country and build roads and hospitals? Take a breather. Dominica is not a kingship or an absolute monarchy.

      Maybe it is because the UWP believes he is the one preventing them from being elected. They are not seeing the only ones preventing them from finding favour with the majority it is themselves. We are tired of the same thing they are feeding us for too many years.

      As long as the majority of Dominicans wants the PM an the DLP Government to remain they will; after all, 15 seats to 6 means the people gave the DLP a huge majority to be our government. If the UWP wants to be the government threatening the PM and the Government is not the way to go. Don’t tell us Skerrit must go, tell us why you think you can do a better job. You cannot.

      Therefore Skerrit must Go On…….

  61. Then the Prime Minister took on a religious tone.–News Article

    No DNO, this is not about religion. PM Skerrit is speaking about his “Relationship with God”; God wants nothing to do with religion–regardless of how many people believe that, even our own Christians.

    So then through that Relationship, some of the things we need, which only God can give to us is, Spiritual insight, guidance, protection, and strength–we don’t get those blessings from religion.

    And as God grants us those blessings He wants us to use them to glorify His Love in us–that is exactly what PM Skerrit is doing; knowing that he was appointed, by the plan of God for his Life, through the people of Dominica. God has said to us, who rely on Him: “My Grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in your weakness”

    Some people need to stand back and allow God to do His Will as He has designed it, lest He strike them cold by the wrath of His Holiness.

      It is easy to deceive the gullible. Furthermore, some people love to be where they assume the action to be with music, etc.

He traveled to Guyana where he was not invited. He will do anything to become Dominica’s PM that he is trying all sorts of tactics for the PM to leave.

      Skerrit is not refusing anything. He will be removed by the ballot; what is so difficult? The UWP is too anxious. Why the UWP believe the represents all of Dominicans? They do not. Dominicans put PM and the DLP in office and when we believe we need a change then we will remove them. Right now we do not want or need a change.

      So the UWP would be better served by raising their profile in a way the general public can approve. Right now, they are doing themselves and Dominica more harm than good and the majority of us do not like what they are doing.

      We need our PM and the DLP to make sure the UWP does not destroy Dominica.

        No it’s not. It’s the hospital that is run from government and possibly Chinese money. It’s not skerrits own personal money that runs the country. Labourites seem to be very confused on this issue. If uwp or freedom were in,power then it would be them that controlled the money of the country. But it still wouldn’t be their personal money, just as it isn’t skerrits personal money. That cbi income is not skerrits own personal money – it belongs to every person of this population, it’s just the government who decides how to spend it, everybody needs to understand that including Skerrit.
