Minister Bernard on Sports and E-Governance Portfolios

Kevin Bernard

Minister Bernard has been the Minister of Sports since November of 2020, but he now leaves this to his colleague, Minister Rodwell Ferguson. He spoke about what he put in place with sports and what he believes will continue under Ferguson. He also commented on accomplishments at E-Governance which he now hands over to Francis Fonseca.

“Now, you gained Health but you lose Sports, and Sports was one of your favourite portfolios.”


Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health & Wellness

“Well all of them were (laughs). But I’m telling you that while I may have lost Sports, I can tell you that what we had put in place at the Ministry of Sports and I as well, met with the Minister who now takes over Sports, Minister Ferguson earlier today, and he has committed to continue the work with the people we have in place. I can tell you that with the same energy and passion that we brought it, I’m confident that Minister Ferguson will do the same because he has the people that will support him and that will push the development of sports in this country. And I’ll be here as the Minister of Health to support the initiative. Of course you think of what you have accomplished over the year at the Ministry, but knowing that you have the right people in place, that is the ingredient – that you have built the structure – and you have the right people there to carry on the task with great leaders. Let’s look at E-Governance, for example. We built E-Governance from nothing to where it is. We have a National Digital Agenda, but it is now in the hand of a great Minister as well and I’m very confident that Minister Fonseca and his team will work closely with our E-Governance Unit to move that agenda forward.”
