The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) is denying a media report that claimed Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley was stuck at sea when he travelled to Tobago via the ferry.

The report suggested that the ferry experienced problems while the prime minister was on board.

However, the OPM issued the following statement denying the claim.

"The Trinidad Express has published a story written my Ms Anna Ramdass titled "Rowley stuck at sea, PM sees ferry problems first-hand".

The article claims that "Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley was stuck out on the high seas for several hours as the T&T Express ferry to Tobago encountered engine problems ".

This is absolute fabrication since the ferry set sail at around 4:00 pm with the journey to Tobago being uninterrupted and without incident.

As such, we are requesting an immediate retraction and apology from the Trinidad Express for publishing this most erroneous and misleading article."
