Warner: Govt will do all to help in Robinson’s recovery
Former president Arthur NR Robinson is resting comfortably at the St Clair Medical Centre in Port-of-Spain after being taken there on Monday night. Acting Prime Minister Jack Warner, who visited Robinson yesterday evening at the hospital, said the former president was weak, but in good spirits. “I saw His Excellency and I must confess he is extremely lucid...He’s weak, of course, but he’s quite clear, he’s speaking quite well,” he said.
Warner added that Robinson even complimented him on his work as a minister. “In fact he said to me that I brought new vigour and energy to the government and he says anything he can do to help me he will. He has commended me highly for the work I am doing and propose to do and I wish him the best and I wish him a speedy recovery,” he said.
Warner said the former president may be discharged from the hospital today, but did not reveal what was the cause for Robinson’s hospitalisation. He also said the Government would do all it can to help Robinson on his path to recovery. “I did tell him that anything the Government can do to make it better, to get him a speedy recovery, we shall do. I said to him, the sky is the limit,” he said.
“I want to repeat that if there is a need for anything of any kind, inclusive of going away but not limited to that, whatever we can do, we will do,” he said. The Government would always try to help former heads of state, he said. Warner said Robinson’s daughter Ann- Margaret, who is at her father’s bedside, was also very appreciative of his visit, and that prayer was still needed for Robinson to make a full recovery.
