There is a political featuring Dr.Hubert Minnis that seems to be highlighting all of the things that Dr.Minnis is not. The ad was broadcast last week and for some reason it was followed by a promo on the new critical care block at The Princess Margaret Hospital. As far as I know the Critical Care facility was built during the time that Dr.Minnis was Minister of Health. Are we being intentionally misled?
If the ad is an attempt to compare Dr. Minnis and Prime Minister Christie, what framework is being used?
As far as I know Dr.Minnis has held only one Cabinet post in his career and he has something to show for it, while Minister Perry Christie was “returned to the fold of the Progressive Liberal Party, and was appointed Minister of Agriculture, Trade and Industry by the then Prime Minister.
Christie’s ministerial responsibilities included the Ministry of Agriculture, Trade and Industry; mining, geological surveys, petroleum, fuel, oils and petrochemicals, industries encouragement, manufacturing, relations with The Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Corporation, relations with The Bahamas National Trust, Andros reef and blue holes, and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Co-operatives”(Wikipedia). And, he has little to show for the time he spent in those ministries.
Our Prime Minister would be better at his job if he concentrated on doing just one thing well, the job he was elected to do!
