“When you give one man so much power to control. It is bound to fail.”
So said Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) political leader David Abdulah, as it relates to the recent appointment of new WASA executive director, Dr Lennox Sealy.
Abdulah predicts that like past executives put in charge of state institutions, Sealy, who is tasked with the transformation of WASA, is destined to fail.
Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Abdulah said “The model of executive chairmen running state institutions in this country has been a horrific and negative model.” He gave Malcolm Jones at Petrotrin, Calder Hart at Udecott and several others as examples.
Abdulah said “All of them were executive chairmen and all of them, because of the power arrogated unto themselves, lost control and did tremendous damage to TT. “The same thing, mark my words, will happen when you give one man so much power to control. It is bound to fail.”
