He told INews today that while he has resigned as the RHO for Region Five, he has not resigned as a medical doctor and plans to serve the people of Guyana as such in the upcoming future.

Persaud said the decision to resign was “seriously thought about”, and due to some personal issues and “external” reasons, he felt that the best move would be to officially resign from the post of RHO.

While Persaud did not expand on what the “external” reasons were that prompted him to resign from his post as RHO for Mahaica-Berbice, sources revealed that he was “under a lot of pressure recently” from higher officials in the Health Sector.

Persaud told INews that he dedicated his time, skills and energies for many years towards the public and while he does not regret this, it has cost him quality time with his family especially his young daughter.

As such, he intends on spending more time being present in the lives of his family members while continuing to assist in public health services as a medical doctor.
