The youth arm of the Free National Movement (FNM) says, now more than ever, young Bahamians want to see their country head in a different direction.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, April 25 the Grand Bahama FNM Torchbearers Association announced activities and events to climax the 2017 campaign,
Torchbearers say they and young people throughout The Bahamas are fed with the reported corruption in government and the unnecessary pain, hurt and struggles being experienced by the people on Grand Bahama Island.
“Reported revelations of citing PLP cabinet ministers, seemingly, begging foreign investors for millions of dollars in contracts and having a foreign controversial figure make thousands of dollars deposits directly into a personal account, in our minds is unethical, corrupt and a national embarrassment.
“Right thinking young people, we believe, cannot and will not support this PLP government. We invite the young voters in particular and all residents generally, to join us at a number of FNM events set for this week,” the release furthered.
“On Thursday, April 27 we will host Rollin’ with Red’ in Central/West. Come meet and greet Grand Bahama’s FNM Change Team and enjoy the informative and entertaining excitement in Pinedale, Eight Mile Rock form 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Then on Saturday, April 29 , the ‘Rollin’ with Red’ train heads to East Grand Bahama at the High Rock Park, High Rock from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. And finally, on Sunday, April 30 there will be a service of praise and Thanksgiving at New Life Ministry, Coral Road beginning at 9:00 a.m.
“We want Grand Bahama residents to join forces with the FNM, it’s the people’s time and change, real change, is on the way May 10, 2017. A newly elected FNM will revive Grand Bahama’s economy and create a better quality of life for all Bahamians. Our party’s 2017 Manifesto speaks to the vision and action oriented plans designed to reignite Grand Bahama and transform our beloved Bahamas,” the statement concluded.
