FNM Chairman Bashes PLP For Lack Of Growth ”Over The Hill”

Free National Chairman Carl Culmer has hit out at the Progressive Liberal Party for what he called a lack of development of inner city communities during their time in office.


Mr. Culmer’s comments came in a statement as he touted initiatives announced by Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis this month that are expected to revitalize “over the hill” communities.


During a town meeting held at the Wesley Methodist Church Hall in Grants Town, Prime Minister Minnis revealed the programme that will revitalize Over-the- Hill communities.


The programme includes the elimination of outside toilets by 2025, the offering of tax concessions to businesses and residents by the beginning of the next fiscal year, the implementation of free wifi Areas for some constituencies and the construction of a multi-purpose community center.


“Obviously, residents of the Over-The- Hill communities were dissatisfied with the representation they had received during the previous administration, which is why the voters in these areas, who were previously considered to be die-hard PLP supporters voted for the FNM.


“Bahamians living in the Over-the- Hill communities have faced many debilitating problems during the decades in which they have been represented by the PLP, which failed to give them any relief and have left them feeling undervalued and inconsequential,” Mr. Culmer said.




On Monday PLP Leader Phillip “Brave” Davis said the $5m allocated from each budget cycle to fund the Minnis administration’s Over-the-Hill community revitalization programme is a “drop in the bucket,” adding that there are no details.
