Prime Minister Skerrit touts his honorary doctorate; offers UWP leader Lennox Linton an Honorary CXC Certificate
Upon his return to Dominica to much DLP fanfare yesterday, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit touted his honorary doctorate, and commented on the controversy surrounding the award. Addressing supporters clad in red, he questioned why so many are bothered about the honorary award given to him by an institution in Punjab India, if it is of no value.
The Prime Minister took the opportunity to make fun of Dominicans whom he called critics, including opposition leader Lennox Linton, saying, if the cause of the uproar is jealousy over his honorary award, he will award the opposition leader with an honorary CXC Certificate.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Skerrit says he has no concern as to what people call him, so he asked supporters to call him “Skerrit”.
