Some irate Dominicans have harshly criticised Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley for accepting the relocation of Ross University School of Medicine.
One even called for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to sanction the newly elected leader for what has been termed an “act of economic aggression” against a sister nation.
Last Friday, hours after Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit announced Ross University would be leaving Dominica after 40 years, Mottley and Adtalem Global Education president and chief executive officer Lisa Wardell were in turn revealing Barbados would be the new home of the American university.
Dominicans expressed their anger and disappointment on social media.
What made the cut even worse, one argued, was that it happened after Skerrit flew to Barbados and met with the new Prime Minister following the May 24 General Election, which the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) won by a clean sweep of the 30 seats at stake. (SAT)
