DeFreitas says MP Greene is a poor example of a representative, after Dow Hill incident, and should resign

Following his reportedly illegal entry into the University of Health Sciences Antigua (UHSA) in Dow Hill on Sunday, April 3, MP Paul “Chet” Greene is being condemned by Franz deFreitas and asked to step down.

Dr. Adedayo Akande, President of the University, has made a report to the Police, but there is no evidence that lawmen have acted on the complaint, so far.

According to video footage, Greene took what appears to be a group of investors – including several Asians – on a tour of the closed private buildings, and not just of the grounds.

DeFreitas, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s City South, says the act is reprehensible and should be condemned by the Cabinet, of which Greene is a member.

He says that Greene – the Minister of Foreign Affairs – is a poor demonstration of what a representative of the people and the country should be.

Accordingly, the UPP Candidate is calling on him to resign from the government.

The Cabinet Notes, two weeks ago, indicated that the Executive is making moves to acquire the university’s property, claiming that it has not been in operation for some time. 

This statement was refuted by Dr. Akande, who explained that UHSA’s operations had moved online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

DeFreitas says that locals should take an interest in this development, since the Executive appears willing to bully and take advantage of the people to get what it wants.
