CAPI says Public has lost confidence in Health Minister

Local lobby right group Citizens Action for Principles and Integrity (CAPI), in a press release is asserting that the Minister of Health, Dr. Fenton Ferguson’s continued botching of the handling of the Chikungunya (Chik-V) epidemic is sufficient enough to cause the Prime Minister to reconsider his tenure in the Cabinet. CAPI added that the public has lost confidence in the capacity of Dr. Ferguson and his credibility has been eroded by his deliberate play down of the impact of Chik-V is having on national life, and consequently, has soothed the nation in a false sense of security. The group is now calling on the Prime Minister to move with alacrity to take hold of the crisis, and suggested that an emergency task-force be immediately configured in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), including the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPEM), Local Government, and the Opposition and senior medical professionals.
