The United National Congress has chosen football hero David Martin Nakhid to contest the Tunapuna seat against incumbent Esmond Forde.
The UNC release:
The United National Congress Screening Committee has chosen former National Footballer and International player Mr David Martin Nakhid as the candidate for the Tunapuna constituency in the 2020 General Elections.
In a media release just issued by the UNC, Mr Nakhid has long been a staunch supporter of the UNC and an avid believer in the leadership of Kamla Persad Bissessar.
The UNC states that they will continue to choose the best candidates who will work in the interest of the people and said Nakid was chosen as he has the best interest of the nation at heart.
“The people of Tunapuna and the nation are no stranger to David as he has been active in International Football from the early 1980’s, and at present as he runs the David Nakhid International Academy. Previously he served as the Chief Scout and Assistant Coach for the Trinidad and Tobago National World Cup Team. He holds a degree in International Relations and Economics,” said the UNC.
The UNC said “young people remain close to David’s heart as he has seen so many talented youths led astray by the lack of opportunity and dim future under this present administration.”
David has expressed his full confidence in the plans and policies of the UNC in taking this nation forward and transforming it into a first world nation.
