PLP chairman Bradley Roberts has been slammed for intimidating the PLP party to remain silent on Arawak Homes’ recent demolishings of family homes.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said the government will insist that adjustments be made to the plans for the $2.6 billion Baha Mar project at Cable Beach.
The Claridge Primary School Parents Teachers Association were given an update on the New Providence Road Improvement Project.
The plan is to give Bahamians 51 per cent ownership, and the Cultural Village could include a 4-D theatre, a clock tower topped by an enormous conch shell and pirate ship.
The planned demonstration comes after a public outcry and condemnation of the company’s demolition of a family home in the Sir Lynden Pindling Estates.
I only have one piece of advice for Mr. Ingraham and that is this: if he decides to put the Bahamian economy and its people in bed with the Chinese Government, please make sure we’re well covered.
Public outcry spurred the government’s intervention in the legally and morally questionable actions taken by Arawak Homes Limited against homeowners.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said that he intends to make whatever decision is best for the country and that he and his party will accept the political consequences of that decision.
The Baha Mar development is viewed by many as a vital project for the revitalisation of the Bahamian economy, however, the prime minister stated that “Baha Mar is no saviour” as there are still major challenges to be faced.
