The Peo­ple’s Na­tion­al Move­ment (PNM) has wished Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty Min­is­ter Stu­art Young a speedy re­cov­ery from a fall he suf­fered at the open­ing of the Pe­nal Fire Sta­tion ear­li­er to­day.

The PNM said in a state­ment, “We are con­fi­dent that the health care he is re­ceiv­ing is ex­cel­lent, and we hope that his in­juries are tem­po­rary, and his pain, tol­er­a­ble. The PNM lifts Min­is­ter Young in our prayers and we are con­fi­dent that all de­cent cit­i­zens of our na­tion will join us in pray­ing for him.”

The par­ty says Min­is­ter Young con­tin­ues to be “a shin­ing ex­am­ple of pa­tri­o­tism, pas­sion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism.”

It added, “His work eth­ic is un­matched and his con­tri­bu­tion to our na­tion­al de­vel­op­ment is tremen­dous­ly ap­pre­ci­at­ed, and as such, we look for­ward to his com­plete re­cov­ery and his full re­turn to the ser­vice of his con­stituents in Port of Spain North/ St. Ann’s West, and his coun­try.”

Young was tak­en to the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.
