Bahamas Press is investigating another â€˜conflict of interestâ€™ in The Airport Authority. Brent Symonette was reminded how he was fired as Chairman of the Authority in the first FNM administration. The reminder came from the former minister of transport Glenys Hanna-Martin during the debate in Parliament today.
Bahamas Press has learned that FNM financier and sitting president of Colina Emanuel Alexiou was appointed to the board of the Airport Authority under the new government. Hubert Ingraham announced in the House of Assembly today that Alexiouâ€™s architectural company Alexiou & Associates has been proposing a contract to design the new LPIA airport facilities.
Will the Airport Authority under the direction of chairman Frank Watson go down the road once again by allowing its board members, this time in the name of Emanuel Alexiou, to now raid contracts for himself? And if the Prime Minister is allowing this conflict to proceed, will he now do what he did to BRENT SYMONETTE, and remove ALEXIOU off the Airport Authority board? Bahamas Press has reasons to confirm why that would NEVER HAPPEN!
Another conflict of interest is brewing in the Airport Authority but this time no one will stop what is about to take place. Emanuel Alexiou owns most of the radio stations and newspapers in this country and so NOT A WORD about this will be spoken or written. The Trust Agenda Strikes AGAIN!
