Former PM Minnis visits govt subdivision without Pintard
Free National Movement (FNM) Leader Michael Pintard was nowhere in sight when Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis visited the “New Day” government’s new subdivision off Pinewood Gardens.
In a desperate attempt to remain relevant, Minnis arranged his own visit to Pine Crest Subdivision on Tuesday without inviting his parliamentary colleagues from the FNM.
Pinewood residents tell the Gallery they were driving past the area when they spotted Minnis standing on the site of the new government homes with Former Minister of Health Renward Wells.
They looked around the construction site but couldn’t find the actual leader of the FNM, his deputy Shanendon Cartwright or FNM Chairman Dr. Duane Sands.
Minnis wanted to get up close and personal, scaling the blocks of one of the houses under construction.
His secret visit shows the former prime minister is still at odds with the new leadership of his party and it is only a matter of time before he attempts to reclaim his old title as party leader.
More than 100 Bahamians will benefit from the first phase of a housing initiative launched by the Davis administration.
More than 40 homes will be constructed in the Pine Crest area. The government broke ground on the Pine Crest Subdivision in January.
In the House of Assembly last week, Minnis flayed the Ministry of Housing over the quality of the homes which will go to deserving Bahamian families.
Perhaps, the Killarney MP has a case of sour grapes as his government failed to build any homes for hardworking Bahamians during its lackluster four years in office.
The Minnis Administration touted a Prospect Ridge development for young professionals but it never got off the ground before the party lost the 2021 General Election.
