Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press stands by our story. Picewell ‘Scoa’ Forbes has already accepted the position as Chairman of URCA on Friday. We can confirm the confirmation to accept the post came on Friday.
You would remember we at BP told you over the weekend; Forbes met with Minister of National Security Tommy Turnquest and also engaged an emergency meeting with PLP leader Perry G. Christie on his acceptance.
URCA is a statutory body and therefore Forbes does not have to resign his seat in the Parliament to be Chairman. He can sit in the House just like Malcolm Adderley. We however believe he will resign his seat.
By Friday of this week ‘Soca’ Forbers will seated as Chairman and you can take that to the bank cause that is where ‘Soca’ ga take his cheque.
