Free National Movement statement of condolences on the passing of A. Loftus Roker

May 28, 2024

The Bahamas has lost a national treasure with the passing of the Hon. A. Loftus Roker.

Mr. Roker, a former Minister of National Security, was known for his tough stance on
Immigration when he served as Minister responsible. He was never afraid to voice his
opinion even if it went against the grain of his political party; He called a spade a spade!

A scholar and a statesman, he was a nationalist with an abiding love for the Bahamas.
Roker was the last living signatory of the Bahamas Constitution, closing a chapter of
Bahamian history that is destined to inspire future generations. He was as comfortable
in the hallowed halls of Parliament as he was at a Domino table under the bridge or in
his beloved Acklins.

The country has indeed lost a National Treasure and hero with his passing. He will be
greatly missed and always remembered.

On behalf of my wife Berlice, myself, and the entire Free National Movement family, we
extend our heartfelt condolences to the family on his passing.

Hon. Michael C. Pintard, M.P.
Leader of the Free National Movement
