Activist Wendell Eversley is calling for the resignation of Works & Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan. He is doing so by walking from the Arima Dial to the ministry at Richmond Street, Port-of-Spain.

He is also inviting members of the public to walk with him on August 30.

Eversley posted his invitation on social media yesterday saying it was time “we stand up for T&T.”

The post read: “This is a serious question. I want no jokers, I am going to do a walk from Arima to the Ministry of Works calling for Minister Rohan Sinanan to go. All who joining in this walk. No jokers. We must send a message, it’s time we stand up for T&T.”

In an interview yesterday, Eversley said: “Rohan Sinanan has to go, the Minister of Works has to go. I am calling on him to step down. I am walking from the Arima Dial on August 30 to the Ministry of Works at Richmond Street in Port-of-Spain.”

Eversley said he did not care who joined him but things needed to change.

“I don’t care who walking. It is time we stand up for Trinidad and Tobago we can’t allow tax payers money going from past regime to present regimen. This present attorney spent money on pre-action protocol letters and to date no one has been brought before the court,” he said.

He lamented that the state of the judicial system needed to change.

“The judiciary in a mess. Opposition senators calling on Chief Justice (Ivor Archie) to go when they have a question behind they head. We only hearing about who is the better thief between Opposition and the present Government,” he said.

“The PNM has lent millions to Clico, people losing their jobs, mothers crying they can’t buy school books. The air bridge and sea bridge in a mess. The fiasco with the fast ferry and rumours concerning the ownership of the vessels. I have no confidence in a one-man investigation with a man with no power.”

“So no one has to go before him (investigator) and he can’t compel nobody to go before him. Hundreds spent on commission of enquiries and no one is before the court,” he said.

Eversley said it was time the country brought public officials and politicians to answer for tax payers money and people suffering.

“If he (Sinanan) don’t tender his resignation, I will do a 30-day fast in the ministry from 6 am to 6 pm,” he said.

When contacted, Sinanan said he did not wish to comment about Eversley.
