Senator Gregory Riviere has defended Education Minister Octavia Alfred in light of calls for her to resign over statements made at a meeting with students last week.
Senator Riviere had organized an information session for college and fifth from students in Marigot to discuss educational opportunities.
Minister Alfred addressed the over 100 students, admonishing them to identify additional ways to fund their schooling despite receiving some Government assistance.
Riviere called for the attacks on Minister Alfred to cease.
