Despite reports that the National Carnival Commission (NCC) felt slighted that it was not approached to be part of the staging of Tobago’s inaugural Carnival, the NCC assures that there’s no bad blood.
In a statement, the NCC restated its firm support for the upcoming event as it took note of comments to the contrary in the public domain.
The NCC said: “While the Festival’s planners opted not to access the NCC’s offer to leverage its expertise and resources for the event, the Commission has never wavered in its ongoing moral support of the Festival and its organising committees.
Indeed, the Commission continues to wholeheartedly extend its best wishes for a successful, memorable, and fruitful Tobago Carnival 2022.”
Nonetheless, the NCC said it views the event as part of a wider, national push toward promoting the twin-island Carnival culture, adding that it remains eager to assist, if called upon, in any way that it can.
Further, the NCC said it’s committed to the Festival achieving all of its goals, and its sustainable development.
The NCC concluded by restating its commitment to staying true to its mandate in service to the people and the Carnival culture of Trinidad and Tobago.
