PM: Stop bad-talking T&T, it’s no hellhole

Stop bad-talking Trinidad and Tobago and be more grateful. This was the advice ­given by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday, as he spoke at the sod-turning cere­mony for the new billion-dollar Sangre Grande hospital at Ojoe Road.

Addressing a caller who he said had called into a radio station following his presentation at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week, Rowley said citizens take too much for granted. The caller, he said, had taken issue with his comments at the General Assembly, where he spoke of T&T’s poverty eradication programme.
