Consumers Association President resigns

The President of the National Consumers Association (NCA), Trevor Albert, has resigned half way into his two year term.

His resignation takes effect on September 13, 2016.

Albert has disclosed that he took the decision in order to attend to pressing family business.

Under his watch the Consumer Protection Bill was passed.

The NCA also continued quarterly meetings that were started under the previous administration.

In addition, NCA representatives met with Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Commerce, Industry, Investment, Enterprise Development and Consumer Affairs, Bradley Felix, to discuss matters affecting consumers.

That meeting was held in June.

    Mmmm, consumer protection?
    We now have a monopoly in food retail and in Telephone and cable!

    I knew that Trevor was not ‘cut-out,’ to do this. He hardly made sense on camera, always searching for words, looked intimated and his heart was not in it. So it’s a good move. Perhaps Allen (the boy) will do the same and make his exit from being UWP Prime Minister.

    I wish you well in whatever you choose to do next. I don’t know if there is much you could have done.

    Unfortunately the NCA is one of the most ineffective organizations in St Lucia. Your predecessor was just a “trojan horse” who used the NCA as his platform but never did anything to actually benefit consumers.

    Hopefully someone new will step forward and lead the charge for consumers.
