Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has spoken of the decisive action taken by Martin McGuinness in resigning from his position as deputy First Minister in light of the crisis brought about by the RHI scandal.

The East Derry MLA said:

“Martin McGuinness has led from the front in the Executive for the last ten years, defending the integrity of the political institutions and realising the potential of the Good Friday Agreement.

“He is recognised throughout the north, across Ireland and across the world for his leadership and peacemaking.

“He has always put the people and the political process first despite the lack of reciprocation from some quarter in his reconciliation efforts.

“The response to RHI scandal from the DUP and Arlene Foster has been one of arrogance, and it is out of touch with public opinion. The money outgoing as a result of the scandal should have been used to end poverty and disadvantage or to build public services. No minister responsible for such bad governance in any other administration would be still in office.

“I very much respect Martin McGuinness’ leadership and the decisive action he has taken to bring the RHI scandal, and the DUP’s arrogant attitude to the political process, to a head.

“Sinn Féin wants equality and respect for all, there can no return to the status quo.”
