Jamaicans aren’t the only ones mounting concerns about students being asked to do exams in unstable condition. Prime Minister of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, in an interview with RJR News stated he was concerned about students in Jamaica being asked to sit exams in wake of the violent unrest associated with the invasion of Tivoli Gardens to extradited alleged strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.
The Eastern Caribbean island Prime Minister in the interview with the RJR’s Earl Moxam said he had began making inquiries on this issue.
“In fact this morning I was trying to get on to the University authorities…I haven’t been able to get them as yet. I read also in the press that the Minister of Education in Barbados is concerned, of course students have now finished writing the exams some should be on their way home but one has to be very worried about that,” Dr. Gonsalves said.
He also voiced great concern about the wider impact of the ongoing situation on the Jamaican society.
