Ingraham wants Glover-Rolle to ‘Take Back’ Misleading Comments

Former Prime Minister Hon. Hubert Ingraham

Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham demanded that Minister of Labour and the Public
Service Pia Glover- Rolle take back the misleading comments she made concerning the Free
National Movement (FNM) during the recent Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Convention.
Mr. Ingraham took time out of his endorsement of FNM candidate Bishop Ricardo Grant to
address the climax of Minister Glover-Rolle’s speech, where she said, “The FNM did nothing for
public service. The FNM did nothing for Bahamians.”
Mr. Ingraham pleaded, “Please take it back.”
Minister Glover- Rolle’s speech was rewarded with resounding applause, but Mr. Ingraham was
not as impressed.
“That’s an outright lie. There’s no need to lie in this business. When she goes to work every day
as minister, she goes to the place the FNM put there,” Mr. Ingraham said.
In Minister Glover- Rolle’s speech at the PLP Convention, she claimed the Davis administration
conducted the first public service wide promotional exercise in over eight years, allocated a $6
million increase in budget for public servants, and the signing of 24 new union agreements,
while the FNM had a “whole lot of excuses.”
Former Prime Minister Ingraham refuted the minister’s claims, taking credit for the foundation
the public service has to create progress. He asserts that the FNM passed laws for minimum
wage and reducing the work week which contributed to the public service.
Mr. Ingraham’s pleas for minister Glover-Rolle to recant her statements came after he too
compared the track record between the FNM and PLP in order to support candidate Bishop
Ricardo Grant’s door- to- door campaigning.
