Jack Warner has quit. The controversial Caribbean figure tendered his resignation to Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar today on the heels of a damning report on his involvement with The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football.
An official statement released by the Trinidad PM’s office read:
“I have today accepted the offer of resignation of the Minister of National Security, Mr. Jack Warner from the Cabinet of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
I wish to thank Mr. Warner for his service to the government and people of Trinidad and Tobago.
I have advised His Excellency President Anthony Carmona to revoke the appointment of Mr. Warner and to appoint Senator, the Honourable Mr. Emmanuel George as Minister of National Security.
