In what the people of Tobago are knocking as a “job for one of the boys”, Dr Anselm London has been hired as a consultant, at $60,000 a month, to the Division of Finance/Enterprise Development of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) which he led for 12 years as Secretary up until last month’s THA election.
THA Chief Secretary Orville London yesterday confirmed Dr London, his cousin, will be a consultant to the Finance/Enterprise Development Division, brushing off concerns that hiring him was unethical.
“It is not a situation that you doing him (Dr London) any favour,” the Chief Secretary told Newsday.
Dr London had served for three terms of the THA (12 years) as Finance Secretary in the capacity of a councillor in the Assembly, never having faced the polls.
