ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Following our first and accurate report on July 18, 2016 that retired civil servant Mrs Rosalie Adams will be named the Acting Deputy Governor, information has since reached this news site that Executive Private Secretary in the Governor’s Office, Mrs Carolyn Stoutt-Igwe has been tipped for the post of Acting Permanent Secretary in the Deputy Governor’s Office (DGO).

It has been reported that Stoutt-Igwe will fill the post since the confirmed Permanent Secretary Mr David D. Archer is proceeding on study leave. It is not clear how long Mr Archer will be out on study leave.

Prior to being assigned to the Governor’s Office, Mrs Stoutt-Igwe served as the Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Social Development.

If the appointment is made, Stoutt-Igwe will be serving under former Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Premier, Mrs Rosalie Adams who will act in the position of Deputy Governor.

It is not clear if Adams is to eventually succeed long time Deputy Governor Mrs V. Inez Archibald CBE, who is out on sick leave but is expected to retire at the end of August 2016. 

A few days ago, Mr Archer was named Acting Deputy Governor, however, according to a National Democratic Party (NDP) source, he will not reportedly get the post of Deputy Governor.

Morale in the civil service is low, with cries of victimisation, cronyism and promotion based on who supported the ruling NDP.

Sexual harassment is also reportedly a major issue in the civil service, with many claiming that the NDP Government prefers to sweep it under the rug rather than tackle the problem head-on.

    Woman of God - the righteous MUST rule! Prayers will continue to go up for all the righteous people of God to take their position in these Virgin Islands. Continue to be the honest, capable, and indiviudual of integrity that I know you to be Ms Igwe. Jesus Christ is Lord of these Virgin Islands and what he says and promises, will come to past, no matter how long it takes. Hallelujah! His timing is perfect!

    Halleleujah, send the glory. Halleleujah, Amen. Don't forget it is an African belief that the dead lives on and has gone to be the watchman or woman over the living. Well, then let my Uncle Prince Ghost shine a clear light so his daughter and grandson could see. All you busy cutting down people. But them is our people. Ah say, head and not the tail, far above and not beneath. To God be the Glory. Tis great things he doing. The private sector pulling wool over some eyes, but in Government the scales are lifted. Tis good news in our country. So let it be.
