Prime Minister of Dominica, Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit, in his address, quoted a verse of the Bible verses 31 to 40. He read, “Why does not speak directly to hosing; it also talks about welcoming the stranger into your home, and this one can interpret us housing less fortunate.
Those who knock on you door those who are homeless, and this is why I am always perplexed that we say that we are a Christian nation we have more churches per capita than most of the countries in the world; still, people criticize my government and me for doing these things for the people.” He added that this is a duty of Christian to support the less fortunate person.
Dr. Skerrit said that it does not matter who voted for him and who did not; he will continue his support for the less fortunate people. Sarcastically, Skerrit described the political scenario of Dominica as several church leaders were involved in elections. “So many Church leaders were involving themselves in politics rather than getting people to heaven, so maybe I should leave politics for them and go to the church.”

Additionally, he mentioned that in every corner of the city, there are old vehicles imported from Japan and just put at the side of the road and don’t pay attention. Who have ridiculous as a rule they will be removed, “I will move very quickly, and if we have to go to parliament to change the law, we will change it.”
