The dispute over the piece of land on which the headquarters of the Antigua & Barbuda Association of Persons with Disabilites (ABAPD) currently sits, has been resolved following a meeting with Attorney General Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin and a member of the association.
The meeting was called after the president of the association, Bernard Warner took to the airwaves on Tuesday night as well as yesterday to complain about a notice he received to halt construction on a project at the property, which is located in Belmont.
In bringing his concern to the public, Warner said that the hydroponics project was being funded by a grant from an overseas agency.
“I wrote a project proposal while I was in Japan to do a hydoponics system to help the disabled to grow organic vegetables,” he said earlier.
“We got the funds from the Global Environment Facility — US $50,000. We purchased the system from an agency out of St Kitts and the guy is here working on it.”
However, Minister Benjamin told OBSERVER media that both parties had met yesterday and that the matter was discussed and has been resolved.
He also said that the government is fully supportive of the ABAPD and wishes the group well in its endeavours.
