QUOTES OF THE WEEK: John-Paul White + Horace Dalley + Jah Cure + Bruce Golding + PM Portia Simpson-Miller

“The way I was brought up does not allow me to pay attention to evil. So whatever is evil, I leave it aside. I deal with it by praying to my God….. In my entire political career I have been criticized a lot. I don’t mind constructive criticism, but I hate destructive criticisms, because it means that the person making the destructive criticisms of you cannot be someone with a good heart.” — PM Portia Simpson-Miller, in a recent Gleaner interview, on dealing with negativity

“What I think is undeniable is the need for some kind of oversight and greater transparency in how Petrojam administers its pricing mechanism, whatever that may be – something that ought not to be left to its board of directors alone. The motorist should be enabled to better understand what goes on between his wallet and the pump.” — Former Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding weighing in on the latest round of the gas debate

“The government has a responsibility to ensure that there is adequate pharmaceutical stuff available, and that is why I have instructed my team at the ministry to call out all our public health instructors who have retired in the last two years to come out because we need all hands on deck now to ensure that our country is protected as best as we can from the Zika virus.” — Horace Dalley, Minister of Health, updating Jamaicans on the fight against the Zik-V

“If I could travel to America, I could achieve more, so I am reaching out to knowledgeable people and immigration lawyers to get the right advice. Maybe winning a Grammy would help with getting a visa to achieve that. Knowing what I have been through, I could help others build their careers.”  Grammy nominee Jah Cure talking to Billboard.com about the restrictions placed on him as a former inmate

“I wish to remove any issue that may potentially cause the party embarrassment. Therefore I will step back as the standard-bearer for the party’s Northern Trelawny constituency in the interest of the greater good and in the aim of securing an overall victory for the PNP. No doubt there are thousands and thousands of people in the constituency who will be disappointed. However, I assure them that they will always be close to my heart.” — Embattled businessman John-Paul White announcing the withdrawal of his candidacy from the upcoming General Elections
