Deputy Commissioner of Police Albert Wade reportedly apologized for comments he made at a meeting of the Police Welfare Association last week.
In the comments, which were broadcasted on state media, Wade told fellow officers, “50-something years, we’ve been waiting for stations to be built but if you’d love yourself, you would not be at those stations”.
“We saw a school built over there in months, the former education building refurbished in months, the treasury building on High Street refurbished in months”, he added.
Over the weekend, Prime Minister Browne told Pointe Fm, Wade “stepped out of line big time”.
“The type of impudence we have seen, let me call his name, from Deputy Commissioner Wade, is extremely egregious and I think it’s a matter of national security to the extent that I don’t wish to go any further”, the Prime Minister added.
“I believe that the Deputy Commissioner of Police and the Prime Minister had a frank conversation and as far as the Prime Minister have reported, the Deputy Commissioner had tendered his apologies for what he considered to be a slip in judgement”, Information Minister Melford Nicholas told reporters at a Cabinet press briefing on Thursday.
“The Prime Minister indicated to the Cabinet that he has so accepted and as far as he is concerned that brings an end to that particular matter”, Nicholas added
