Mere hours after accepting the resignation of former chairman of the Transport Board Gregory Nicholls, Prime Minister Mia Mottley has named his replacement.
Ian Gooding-Edghill, the Member of Parliament for St Michael West Central is the new chairman.
Mottley broke the news while delivering the feature address at the Barbados Workers’ Union May Day celebrations at its Solidarity House headquarters this afternoon.
“Yesterday, the chairman resigned and I accepted it through my Minister. I have asked Ian Gooding-Edghill, who is a former chairman of the Transport Board and who is more than capable of meeting the obligations and the task of chairman to do and to accept that position and he has agreed.
“I expect therefore that he will work with the board with immediate haste to help correct this unfortunate situation,” Mottley said.
Gooding-Edghill is also the chairman of the National Insurance Board.(RB)
