"Health Minister no longer has credibility" says Holness

Opposition Leader Andrew Holness in a press release registered the position that the current Minister of Health Dr. Fenton Ferguson, no longer has the credibility needed to manage the health sector. Mr. Holness expressed this in a press release where he revealed that the Opposition would be monitoring what they described as the government's belated move on the Chikungunya and Ebola virus. He said: "It is because the Minister has failed why we had to convince the Prime Minister to get involved. The Prime Minister has confirmed by her actions that she has lost confidence in her Minister of Health, and with the Health Sector creaking under his management, we see no reason for his continuation in the role of Minister of this important sector."
