It is reported that all international airports in Eleuthera have been shut down to inbound and outgoing air traffic due to the apparent boycott of Airport Authority staff including security officers: I am advised that the staff boycott is in protest to a number of long outstanding matters affecting the wellbeing of officers in that agency.

The Minister of Aviation must immediately address this most serious state of affairs. There is far too much self-congratulating taking place in this administration in the face of tremendous failings negatively affecting the interests of our citizens.

We remind the Government that governance is about people and not public relations.

The Minister must immediately bring resolution so as to avoid any further economic and reputational harm to the people of Eleuthera and The Bahamas at large.
