Glenys Hanna Martin MP spoke to the issues of the duplicity in the Oban Energy Deal proposed for Grand Bahama. She took the government to task for firing people from the public service without any transparent criteria. She was speaking in the House of Assembly on the midyear budget debate on 12th March She said: “Mr Speaker, the people of Englerston, and indeed the Bahamian people are really not too much interested in the politicking.
“A lot of people are out of work and are catching almighty hell trying to survive from one day to the next.
“It has not helped that this government itself put hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people on the unemployment line since they took office.
“They have provided some alleged rationale for these terminations but in light in what is now becoming a sordid track record we must take everything this government says with a grain of salt.”
