Floyd Wilmott, signed an $8.6 million dollar contract to complete a facility at Sandilands, and from here the story gets fascinating.
Under the Christie administration NIB signed a contract with Penn Construction to build this same complex. The contract cost to taxpayers was some $7 million to construct.
The government has decided to reissue the contract to another Ingraham apologist at $8.6 million. Nurses say the facility is needed. The current section at Sandilands houses 24 rooms for patients. We understood from the press conference when it is completed, 6 new patient rooms will compliment the current available beds. Now something isn’t right here:
- Initially the government paid $7 million to construct 6 additional patient rooms with a few meeting rooms.
- The Government allowed wild bush to take over the abandoned building.
- The building started by Penn is more than 45% completed with its roof done.
Bahamas Press projects the THIEVES AND ROGUES leading NIB will leave the fund in financial danger and on life support when they’ve completed squandering all the public money! NO WAY COULD IT COST $8.6 MILLION TO COMPLETE A BUILDING HALFWAY DONE, WHEN IT COST INITIALLY $7 MILLION FROM SCRATCH!
Bahamas Press also cries SHAME on the Ingraham government for allowing its audacious contractor to appear at the contract signing dressed from head to toe in his ‘COLOUR RED GARMENT’. WHAT A NASTY SHAME! THESE POLITICAL CRONIES HAVE NO SHAME!
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE FROM THE PUBLIC ON THIS?
Members of the WUTLESS MEDIA went into that press conference and questioned not a DAMN WORD as to why the contract was reissued. None dared to ask Cargill why he wasn’t taking his team to Abaco Club at Winding Bay. Nor did anyone ask him if he was still squandering public money to quench his expensive thirst for Fiji water. No one asked Floyd or the Minister why has the cost raised so high, despite the fact the building is already 45% completed.
No one asked the question, if there was shoddy work done by the former contractor, causing the termination of his contract, what were those errors made? And no one dared to ask the Chairman of NIB if he was satisfied with the performance of Cargill and his management team amid all the dark clouds of SCANDALS and SQUANDER hovering over the NIB complex.
As we’ve said before, WE CRY ‘DUTTY’ SHAME ON THE WUTLESS MEDIA ‘DEM’!
