Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham Prime Minster Hubert Ingraham will exercise his constitutional powers today and announce changes in his Cabinet. Above is a photo of Ingraham and below some members that will be affected in the Cabinet shuffle today.
Nassau, Bahamas: In a press statement announced by BIS, Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham will shuffle his cabinet on Monday. The statement read, “Prime Minister Hubert A. Ingraham will announce tomorrow evening a reallocation of Cabinet portfolios.
“It will be the first reshuffle of the Cabinet since Mr. Ingraham began his third nonconsecutive term as the nationâ€™s Prime Minister. ”
Over a month ago on May 13th, sources confirmed to Bahamas Press that Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham will change the face of his cabinet before the budget in June. The breaking of that story delayed the process and therefore Ingraham decided to make his changes after the budget debate. No matter what, the fact is after a year in office Hubert Ingraham has found the URGENT need to reassign the men and women in the Cabinet due to a ‘lack of performance’.
At the time of our May 13th release, some who served in the Cabinet did not know what was about to take place, but we did. Bahamas Press is overlooked by many, and by some taken for granted, but what we say here are true and fact. And so on Monday, today live for all the nation to hear, Hubert Ingraham will do just what we said he will do, that is shuffle his Cabinet.
Hubert Ingraham has a serious problem this time however, he has discovered that the entire CABINET in the CABINET has all fallen to some kind of corruption or SCANDAL. All the men in the inner Cabinet circle has broken some part of the “TRUST AGENDA” Hubert Ingraham laid out before the Bahamian people at the swearing ceremony at Government House last year May. Bahamas Press has followed these events and is ready to conclude the following.
Bahamas Press announces, as we said in May 13th article, to looks for a reassignment in the ministry of finance. Zhivargo Laing will become a full time minister, and will he will be moved OUT of the Ministry of Finance. This is a bold prediction to make however, if Hubert Ingraham fail to do this it will be detrimental for his government a source advising the prime minister concluded. ‘MONA VIE’ will not have a case in the courts, and everyone will resurface this SCANDAL in future. To save face, Zharvigo will service another ministry.
Carl Bethel is another who will find less duties under his belt. The Queen’s College Scandal still has a painful sticking affects, and the Hubert cannot help but listen to the facts presented on this blog. The minister is on drips when it comes to gripping the problems shaking the education system in this town. The wife of the PM, a wonderful humble woman we are certain has advised the same, therefore persons should look for changes in that ministry.
Dion Foulkes’ land rip-off scandal just torpedo into a national disgrace in the Ingraham government where scores of homeowners found themselves displaced and out of a legitimate investment. And this is the minister who suppose to keep hardworking Bahamians working.
Then in this year period, Bahamians saw that NATIONAL disgrace of the minister of lands and local government Sidney Collie. Collie sought to proceed with illegal local government elections which disgraced the Ingraham Cabinet when a court ruled that proper proceedures were not done for the preparations of elections to be carried out. Bahamian already know of flaws in elections in this country. And many still believed that if foreigners could have registered in mass in the 2007 elections, having NO status, one would have thought the Ingraham government would have done everything thing in their power to see that elections in the Bahamas are fair. BUT NO, Collie decided otherwise and proved to make sure that ILLEGAL VOTING and the rigging of the local government elections proceed. This is a serious problem in The Bahamas! This time this last incident done by the minister, was another wicked attempt to undermine DEMOCRACY in this country! The prime minister would do well moving Collie, seeing both he like his brother who stole $4,000 out of the Chinese Embassy on Village Road have one thing in common, they both fail to follow the laws of the Bahamas. The Collies should STOP THIEFIN!
Then there is EARL DEVEAUX, who found excuse after excuse when 1,200 public servants were fired from government offices. He argued as to why the government should fire them 1,200 Bahamians just months after the election. Earl later granted a taxi plate to a friend and then took it back. But Earl will be Earl, who remembers when Earl used the government guaranteed loan programme to award his children scholarships and they never went to school, but used the money and bought cars with the government money? Earl will be Earl and how he ended up back in the Cabinet of The Bahamas is still a MYSTERY to Bahamas Press.
Bahamas Press would also advise the PM to remove Tommy Turnquest from the position as Minister of National Security. This is a must, not because Turnquest is not capable to do the job, but in hopes he can secure Tommy’s political career. Bahamas Press ask here, has anyone named as minister of national security ever left that office with a successful political future? Cynthia ‘Mother’ Pratt for starters entered Parliament in 2002 as the most popular MP, with greater popularity than the leader of the PLP. But in less then 5 years later after occupying the office of the minister of national security, she become one of the unpopular ones. If Hubert Ingraham intentionally leave the futuristic Tommy Turnquest in that post this would not be good for him. Bahamas Press advises Tommy to save face and RESIGN with immediate effect from the Ingraham Cabinet if Hubert eaves him in his post. We believe Tommy has a future in politics, and the way to secure that future is to GET OUT OF NATIONAL Security. Hubert said soon he would be moving off the scene, a post as Prime Minister will be vacant. However Tommy will NEVER see that office if he remains minister of national security.
There will be some good refreshing news in the Cabinet shuffle however. Desmond Bannister will be name Attorney General of The Bahamas. This would be refreshing as Sen. Claire Hepburn would be moving out of politics. Also one should look for the minister of Grand Bahama Affairs as promised by Hubert Ingraham in 2007.
