Therold Prudent: Jadia should apologize

Therold Prudent, the leader of the Lucian Peoples Movement (LPM), has said that Jadia Jn Pierre Emmanuel should apologize to her father, Francisco Jn Pierre.

Prudent asserted that Jn Pierre Emmanuel crossed the line when she “dissed” her father recently on a political platform.

The LPM leader told the Times that the young woman’s behavior was a big disappointment to him personally.

Prudent said he has admired her in terms of how she has handled herself.

“I think she is trying too hard to convince the Saint Lucia Labour Party that she is one of them, which everybody knows and to me when you go out there and you basically diss your father or challenge him in that kind of way, it just sends out the wrong signal,” the LPM leader stated.

He accused Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony and the ruling party of being “enablers” in such behaviour.

Prudent said:

“You don’t destroy relationships between father and daughter or daughter and son or families in your quest to seek the political demise of another.”

He expressed the view that politics in Saint Lucia has become vicious and aimless, making persons want to puke.

Prudent told the Times that Jadia needs to take back what she said and return to being someone who can transcend politics.

He declared that she should stop trying so hard to prove to the Prime Minister and the SLP that she is one of them at the expense of her father, who is the opposition candidate for Laborie.

According to the LPM leader, Francisco Jn Pierre deserves an apology.

He said it was important for the young people of this country to continue looking up to Jadia Jn Pierre Emmanuel.

Prudent described the former Press Secretary to the Prime Minister who is now Communications Director of the SLP, as a young woman who came from nothing to someone who seems to be a leader in this country.

    Pru you talk as if you know the PM coached Miss Jadia about what to say. Personally I think this is very unlikely. This is not the first time parent and child are on opposite side of the political divide or have differing views on certain issues. Let us we ourselves don’t exploit the situation for our own political interests.

    I think that an apology is definitely warranted in this case. Yes they are on opposing political parties, but there are some boundaries that should not be crossed. Let someone else within the Labour party address issues or statements regarding her dad. She has fallen several notches in my book, for that move..

    Substandard! A ploy. Distraction from the fact that this was an empty Launch. Lacking substance.
    Dr. Anthony had nothing to say to the host Community of Jacmel and the rest of ALR/CANARIES. Dr. Long like his comrade predecessors had no achievements to tout so he resorted to name calling of the Opposition candidate (Little B…).

    Victorin, well he didn’t have the stamina to stand under pressure and I suppose running on a dismal Labour track record in the constituency. So Jadia tried to save the launch by playing a distractionary role. Her father was the chosen POW (Prisoner of War). I hope time is kind to her and grants her grace for damage control. I just hate it that she chose Jacmel to release her negative anti-family vibes. Prayers going up.

    Ppl stop putting your’ll jaw in family’s business. Did Fracisco asked Prudent to say that he deserve an apology from his daughter? Do you think Francisco will dump Jade for political reasons. They are father and daughter. The family stick bend but it NEVER breaks. For the man I know Jn Pierre to be, nothing his daughter said on a political platform will cause division btw them. That’s politics. They give each other maypwe and they eat and drink together. The supporters are the ignorant ones. Prudent, ‘shut up your mouth and sleep in your bed like that!’ Leave that for Fransco and her daughter to discuss behind closed doors at their family dinner table.
