Bannister’s Resignation Not FNM-Related

Desmond Bannister

Desmond Bannister says his resignation from the Senate has nothing to do with the Free National Movement or the party’s leader Dr Hubert Minnis.

Mr Bannister, Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, described Dr Minnis as a great leader and he encouraged members of the FNM to stand by Dr Minnis and stop the “in fighting”.

He told The Tribune yesterday his departure from the Senate was planned and in fact he was scheduled to resign months ago but he stayed because he was urged to do so by his party leader.
