Q95 hosts radiothon to help 1st Dominica Prime Minister Patrick John get specialist medical attention
Q95 will host a radiothon to help First Dominica Prime Minister Patrick Roland John source specialist medical attention overseas. John was admitted to the Princess Margaret Hospital on November 29, 2015, and was discharged last week. Speaking on Q95 Thursday, John said although he has been discharged, he is not out of the woods, and is still suffering from shortness of breath and other symptoms. He is in need of financial assistance to obtain medical treatment from specialists overseas.
Dominica’s First Prime Minister says he has not been contacted by any Government official, with any offer to provide him with financial assistance to undergo medical treatment overseas, but other persons may have approached government on his behalf. He is said to be suffering from a heart condition. John served as Premier of Dominica after Edward LeBlanc left office, and led the country to independence in 1978, as the head of the DLP. Heis said to be suffering from a heart condition.
Meantime, Salisbury MP Hector John is saddened that the DLP administration has done nothing to assist Dominica’s first Prime Minister Patrick Ronald John, who led the same DLP at the time he became the first Prime Minister of Dominica. Mr. Hector John finds this posture by the current DLP to be completely inhumane and disrespectful to the former DLP Leader and first Prime Minister of Dominica.
Many Dominicans say this is a sad day in the legacy of the Labour Party.
The Patrick Roland John Radiothon will take place on Q95’s Hot Seat
