Chairman of The Progressive Liberal Party
We are advised that seven of the eight school bus transportation contracts in Central Andros were terminated, the eighth contract holder being a known FNM supporter.
These abrupt contract terminations without cause are perceived to be politically motivated and the PLP condemns this practice in the strongest terms. This latest round of terminations follows a pattern of rank and naked political vitimization and discrimination in hiring practices and contract administration within the public service by the FNM.
This practice is heartless as it creates undue economic hardship on an already vulnerable population struggling in tough economic times brought on in part by the failed policies of the FNM. This is simply wrong, evil, divisive and has no place in the Bahamian body politic.
Dr. Minnis and the FNM must go.
