NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Minister of Public Works Desmond Bannister expressed confidence today that the electorate recognizes the leadership it has with the Minnis administration and Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis.
Speaking to the media outside of the Churchill Building, Bannister opined the Bahamian people will judge the Free National Movement (FNM) on “what we have done”.
He underscored the challenges the government has faced over the last year, including one of the worst health crises in The Bahamas’ history.
“This is the second time I have served in Cabinet,” Bannister said.
“This is the administration that I believe is on very sure footing, outstanding leadership, and we are leading this country in a manner that I have never seen exist.”
He said the prime minister has handled the pandemic in a “wonderful manner”, pointing to the rising infections around the Caribbean and across the Atlantic in Europe while The Bahamas has low daily infections.
