The Free National Movement (FNM) issued the following statement regarding the Government’s pandemic response relating to the re-opening of the hotel dining industry:
“When repeatedly asked last week about the serious allegations facing his party’s chief benefactor, Peter Nygard, Philip Brave Davis acted as if he never heard of him. Davis was quick to shut his mouth on the serious subject. Yet, he is always quick to launch into off-course attacks.
“Like a broken record, the old and tired Davis is wearing Bahamians out with his baseless attempts to constantly criticize the Government. He continues to diminish the small amount of credibility he has left with Bahamians each time he utters yet another nonsensical, partisan attack while offering no real solutions.
“There is a global pandemic of unimaginable proportions, which began a year ago. Since the start of the pandemic our Prime Minister, Dr. Hubert Minnis, has worked closely with the health experts to make data-driven decisions to save lives and keep people safe. This week’s decision was no different. True leaders understand when dealing with a global pandemic it’s better to exercise caution in order to maintain a safe and responsible re-opening.
“Davis demonstrates how poor a leader he is every time he speaks, or flees the country. The PLP Leader has shown time and time again his main priority is scoring political points – even in a pandemic – rather than the Bahamian people. But rest assured, we have a doctor at the helm who is making the tough decisions to save lives and work toward getting the country up and running again. Davis would do well to take notice of what real leadership looks like.”
