FNM government issued work permits to Jamaicans to pull power lines from the Wilson City Power plant in Abaco. Why could not Bahamians do the job?

Wilson City, Abaco — Bahamas Press last week paid a visit to the heartbroken people of Abaco who have seen the uncaring FNM government wreck their plans in every direction they turn.

Firstly, the FNM government decided to build a $100 million power plant in Wilson City. They brought in foreign workers to build the facility while Bahamians foot the bill. And after completing the building, some jackass forgot in order to send the power to the consumers. Therefore a second contract had to be issued to pull power lines.

Our visit last week however presents another ‘vicked’ scenario happening on the ground against the people of Abaco.

BP went deep into the bushes for this one, and what we uncovered amounts to another ungodly, vicked, unchristian backside rape against the people of Abaco by the FNM government.

Jamaican Lines men pulling the lines in Abaco. NOT A DMAN WORD FROM THE FNM GOVERNMENT!!

Bahamas Press has learnt and can verify by photos presented here, the minister with responsibility for immigration, has issues scores of permits to Jamaican lines men to pull the power lines from the Wilson City power facility to the Abaco community. NOW HOW LOW COULD YINNER GO?

The FNM government in its clear national policies doesn’t give a RAT’S ASS about Bahamians! On top of all this residents of Abaco are left reeling with massive long lengthy power cuts, which go for some 20 hours a day at times.

In a statement on the matter last week the PLP noted:

Residents are complaining of appliances and other electrical items been damaged or destroyed by the many power surges etc. Abacoians demand to know, when will this madness end?  Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham and MP for North Abaco has remained silenced since his bombast promised to get to the bottom of why BEC Abaco run out of oil and whilst the people of Abaco suffers and the dog days of summer at our doors.

Yet despite that statement on behalf of the people of Abaco, the WUTLESS FNM MEDIA cannot find ink to print on the sleeping FNM government on the matter. But they too have no Damn SHAME!

We wonder what the DNA has to say about this? Yinner must remember now, the former minister for immigration was Branville McCartney, and yet he too like his PAPA has nothing to say about the uncouth, ungodly, VICKED, vindictive, nasty-lowdown treatment the DAMN FNM gives to Bahamians over foreigners; and we know why.

All we could say is this; Lord please deliver us from these VICKED, Damnable UNCIRCUMCISED Philistines in the FNM Government.

Abaco, VOTE THEM OUT!

  1. let me start by saying i have never voted but i intend to

    this is the FNM that the majority of the people voted for
    so now everybody has to deal with it
    maybe just maybe if we as bahamians would pay attention to these candidates do our own background check call their place of work
    anythinng to help you decide
    other than just voting plp or fnm because thats the home you were brought up in
    if we as bahamians are going to vote like that then it might as well be one vote per household

  2. hubert ingrum is telling the bahamian people the same thing what he told kenneth russel at the meeting for leader some time ago….YOU TO STUPID.

  3. It still begs the question now as much as when I first investigated it – HOW is Triple WWW a Bahamian company? When they first were introduced I researched as much as I could and found them nowhere. There is no Triple WWW in my phone book, you can’t find them online.

    Anyone here can find out how this company, full of non-Bahamians, is registered as a Bahamian Business?

  4. While I agree with your final sentiment – “VOTE THEM OUT” – I am a believer in truth and this article is full of exaggerations and lies.

    Here is the Truth:

    FNM Built a new power station for over $100 Million using workers from Ecuador. Only a handful of Bahamians got work on the project.

    WELL Before the completion of the new power plant it was discovered by the public (something BEC and those in charge SHOULD have known before they even started) that the current power lines had insufficient capacity to carry the power. The lines are able to carry 14MW (reality says 10-12MW because at 14MW the lines will overheat)and the new power station produces 48MW (4 12MW Generators). BEC is stuck – financially they cannot by toilet tissue without the government releasing the funds because they are in the hole. So, Knowing this since JULY 2010 at the very least, maybe before, they set to work to do a scope of works and put the bid out to tender. The job was not put to tender for almost 10 months. It took another month plus to award the contract.

    Triple WWW, a company that is said to be a Bahamian company (I have yet to see proof) partnering with a Canadian Electrical Line company got the job and began work in April under a reduced time frame. The workers, from what I can tell are all Jamaican or other Caribbean nationalities. The only Bahamians who got any work out of the deal, to my knowledge, are a couple backhoe operators and a trucking company. All these roles were minor.

    UNTruths (half-truths/exaggerations/lies):

    “On top of all this residents of Abaco are left reeling with massive long lengthy power cuts, which go for some 20 hours a day at times.”

    This statement is a misrepresentation. What Abaconians have dealt with for the past 10 years are brownouts and blackouts in the busy summer months. 2010 was an exceptionally bad year. The problem BEC had teetered between two relative issues: Insufficient generating power and poorly maintained generators that broke down.

    The power outages experienced in the last couple of months have been related to lightning strikes and minor equipment failures. The worst failure coming just a week ago when a fault at Hope Town’s sub station had a minor fire that burnt the switching panel and caused a fuse to trip in Marsh Harbour knocking out power in Central Abaco for about an hour. When they attempted to turn areas back on it tripped again on Hope Town. At that time, about 3pm, they received a call that smoke had been seen coming from their sub-station in Hope Town.

    BEC workers were dispatched to Hope Town and worked tirelessly until 2am to reroute the wires and get power restored to the residents of Hope Town.

    Did this happen because the equipment was poorly maintained – maybe. However, it boils down to an equipment failure that could have happened any time.

    Abaco has not experienced excessive outages so far this year, aside for the recent problem in Hope Town. We have not suffered from any situation where BEC could not handle the load (YET) and power has been relatively good.

    BP Says: “We wonder what the DNA has to say about this? Yinner must remember now, the former minister for immigration was Branville McCartney, and yet he too like his PAPA has nothing to say about the uncouth, ungodly, VICKED, vindictive, nasty-lowdown treatment the DAMN FNM gives to Bahamians over foreigners; and we know why.”

    I do believe you have a hearing problem called heervutuvantitis. Branville has been quite clear that Bahamians come first. He has been quite clear that the first opportunity for jobs in this country belongs to Bahamians, and that there is no need to bring in all these outsiders to work when we have qualified Bahamians looking for work.

    But we all know where you are coming from BP, but if you want to discredit either the FNM or DNA use facts. The FNM has given plenty ammunition to show why they should NOT be allowed to continue. Branville and the DNA still have something to prove, however, the worst that can be said is they need to get out of the gates faster. The Bahamas wants a change and they need to prove they can provide the change we need.

    BP – Focus on facts and people will see you as more credible. You keep peddling lies and exaggerations people are going to write you off as a PLP cronie and propagandist. The FNM has given plenty that you don’t need to lie or exaggerate about.

    • Branville you suggest said that at the outset. But wasn’t he the Minister for Immigration when then workers from Ecuador were granted work permits to build the Wilson City power plant? I hope ya come back, lets hear the facts there…

      BP

      • To be honest, I don’t know. But I will see him a a few days and ask him!

        However, we all would be ignorant to ignore the way that the governing party works. I am quite certain he had a command from his THEN Boss to do so. And, I am quite certain there were a good many things that occurred that he disagreed with, and a few of them reached the level to cause him to resign from the party.

        But I will leave conjecture out at this point and will seek the truth from Bran himself!

      • I would think this is because papa overruled this and many of his other decisions in the past and told him to do this, which is one many reasons he left the papa’s FNM in the first place.

  5. When you consider the amount of foreign labor this FNM government brought into the country during this term, had that same amount of work gone to Bahamians, this recession wouldn’t be as painful.

  6. wow! I am still looking carefully at these pictures for verification on how BP…

    “…can verify by photos presented here, the minister with responsibility for immigration, has issues scores of permits to Jamaican lines men…”

    I’m a bit slow this morning, could someone show me where to look on these photos for the proof?

  7. THE SAD PART ABOUT THIS IS THAT PAPA IS FROM ABACO.PAPA DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HIS OWN PEOPLE.IS THIS MAN A TRUE BAHAMIAN? WHEN HE COMES TO ABACO,HE DRIVES HIMSELF AROUND SO THAT HE CAN DUCK HIS OWN VOTERS WHO KEEP ON VOTING LIKE FOOLS FOR HIM.THIS MAN SIMPLY DOES NOT KNOWS PROTOCOL. WHEN HE IS IN ABACO, HE HANGS OUT WITH OUT WITH THE CHOSEN FEW AND THEN AFTER HIS PRIVATE MEETING IS OVER, HE HAULS
    … TO THE NEAREST AIRPORT WITHOUT SEEING ANYONE FROM HIS CONSTITUENCY.WHEN HE IS IN ABACO,THE PEOPLE CAN’T FIND NO MAN(FNM)IN ABACO.

  8. Bahamians NEED to stand up and fight for their rights
    we sit back and let them rape us, Hubert thinks we are fools because we act that way. I guess there are nobody in Abaco or the Bahamas that are capable to put power lines. You find an ass you ride it and the FNM found asses in the Bahamian people and they are sure riding us.
    THEY REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT US!!!
