The Free National Movement (FNM) issued the following statement regarding the Opposition Leader’s latest politically-motivated attack during the pandemic:
“From the outset of the global pandemic, which has taken countless lives and wrecked economies globally, our Prime Minister, Dr. Hubert Minnis, has worked to make the tough but necessary decisions to save lives and livelihoods. As a doctor, the Prime Minister understands the vital need to take precautions to keep Bahamians safe, while we seek to maintain upon our economic reopening.
“Sadly, from the outset, the Opposition Leader has used the pandemic as nothing more than an opportunity to launch a series of ever contradictory, politically-motivated attacks that ignore the global realities of the deadly virus. His latest statement to the media is a continuation of this recurring theme for Brave Davis and his woeful PLP.
“Since the start of the pandemic Brave has offered Bahamians nothing more than contradictory, incoherent statements bereft of any real ideas and consistent only in their opposition to all actions taken by the Government. Why not join the Prime Minister in encouraging people to get vaccinated – which is the way our country will eventually defeat the virus – instead of launching his typical, round-the-clock political attacks?
“Despite Brave’s best efforts to distract the people in a last, desperate attempt for power, the Prime Minister and his Administration will continue to work tirelessly to source additional vaccines as we continue to reopen our economy in a safe and sustainable manner. That is the work of serious leaders, and the Prime Minister and this Government know Bahamians deserve nothing less from their elected officials.”
