APD’s investment in the Port Deal has yet to come to the attention of the public
Where is the Nine plus Million gone???
Nassau Bahamas –– The picture above is all too familiar. Hubert Ingraham made a decision and his “YES MEN” – who all lost their virginity sometime after May 2nd, 2007 – said nothing about its injustice and criminal past to the public of the Bahamas.
You would remember the Bahamas Government, that would be us, the real former owners of Arawak Cay, transferred the land to the care of some 19 wealthy FNM benefactors. The former government also dredged the Nassau Harbour at a cost of over 52 million plus dollars. They gave a private company permission to sell the fill back to the government, who paid the money to dredge it in the first place.
Then the government, who said they had the people on their side, decided to pay to those 19 wealthy FNM benefactors the sum of million dollars of the people’s money while we all were running for shelter from the unabated crime and violence happening in our communities.
No one had the time, patience or interest to look closer into the scandal that was unfolding at APD. Well no one except BP. We remember that backside rape of the public purse by HUBERT INGRAHAM and his marionettes as they pillaged it in the interest of the few.
But it is time for some questions to be answered and we hope the new Government will take pleasure in calling an Inquiry to investigate the happenings at APD and the decisions and inner maneuvers by the gone FNM regime.
You see, we at Bahamas Press remember all too well how just three short years ago on the 25th of November, 2009, the Tribune [da dutty terlet paper] reported the following:
Headline: Fill at Arawak Cay
Fill was to last Six Years
1.9 million cubic yards of material being dredged from Nassau Harbour will be used for infrastructure projects Prime Minister the Hon Hubert Ingraham said. “The annual usage of fill in Nassau is on the average of a quarter of a million,” the Prime Minister said. “We can easily supply six years of Nassau’s needs and also do all the other things that the Government wants to do for instance extend the boardwalk along Woodes Rogers Wharf, build the market complex, build the Government office building on Thompson Boulevard and have more than enough fill to accommodate everybody…”
Now its 2012, and it looks like all the fill gone to us. How did that happen?
The fill we know was sold via a private company at a cost of per yard. And so we ask a simple question here: where is the .5 Million collected and how much was turned back over to the treasurer of the Bahamas?
The government, we know from information shared with us, had to buy its own fill it dredged.
And so BP is asking one simple question: Who ‘THIEF’ the damn fill and the money? Inquiring minds want to know!
Here’s another reason for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or an Inspector from Scotland Yard to visit the Bahamas and put some people in cuffs!
