Tell us the truth, Ellington

Dear Editor,

I believe everybody knows what the word " bombshell" mean. The sudden resignation of Commissioner Ellington was a national bombshell.

But we are hearing some news that he might have been pushed to the point where he had to jump the time gun. But, was it a good jump or a bad jump?

Anyway, it really seems as if something unpleasant had got the better of him for him to have to call it a day.

But, Ellington should stand still and see the salvation. He should come bravely forward and tell the nation what has gone wrong, so that the unpleasant matter can be straightened out.

We are very concerned, and suspicions are brewing like a fiery storm. Why this commissioner, who seemed so calm, cool and collective, who seemed to be doing a fine job, has suddenly thrown in the towel. Tell us the truth, and nothing but the whole truth, as to what has prompted or caused him to quit his job.

The commissioner has given us a good impression that he was a devoted and reliable man, one who is very focused on carrying out his job. So, please, tell us the truth, yourself, Mr Ellington. Let no one speak for you.

Jamaica needs a very good commissioner, now more than ever.

Donald J McKoy
