Bahamas Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis Victory Speech 2017

  1. Dr Minnis says those who voted for a party other than the FNM “have nothing to fear” adding that “our founding fathers didn't believe in victimisation and neither do we”. He says “we will not deny any Bahamian access to opportunity based on partisan politics.”
  2. Dr Minnis says, “those who abused positions of trust may have something to fear. We will give the Auditor General the money and tools he needs to find how the people's money was spent. And if there is evidence of criminality we will let the law take its course.”
  3.  Dr Minnis says“As we go about the business of governing we ask for God's help. That he protect us from the sins of arrogance and greed. That he keeps us ever mindful that this new day is not about us, but about the people we have to serve. It's truly the people's time.” 
  4. Dr Minnis says “This was a long fought battle, but the victory is not mine, the victory is yours. This is the people's time and I am your servant.”
