Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Free National Movement (FNM) Chairman, issued the following statement regarding the recent fire at the New Providence landfill:

“Last night the New Providence landfill caught on fire once again. I hope our government resolves this situation as soon as possible, given that each new landfill fire disrupts our quality of life. Not only do these fires damage property and bring negative effects to our tourism product, but they pose serious health risks to Bahamian families, which they endure far too frequently.”

“Throughout this recurring catastrophe, this unduly inept PLP government tells us not to worry. As if, their empty rhetoric somehow contains the physical properties to solve this ongoing calamity. But Bahamians know different. We all know that the Request for Proposal to waste management firms, which they repeatedly talk about, won’t fix today’s landfill ablaze. We know their big landfill plans outline modern engineering and waste management practices, but these ‘plans’ have done nothing to prevent today’s fire.”

“Five years have passed and all we’ve heard is plans for this and plans for that. But what have Bahamians seen? Failed promises. What have Bahamians felt? Suffering at the hands of a corrupt regime fighting tooth and nail to retain power. The time has come to exercise the rights we are blessed with—democratic freedom that those before us unhesitatingly fought to enact. On may 10th, use your right and vote for an FNM government that will put the people before selfish endeavours. Vote for the FNM because we will hold our government actors accountable, and we will not allow incompetence to ruin our beloved country and our endearing families.”
