(Eyewitness News) NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Reflecting on his term in office, former Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis held back tears yesterday as he asked Free National Movement (FNM) members for their forgiveness for any mistakes he made as their leader.
He pledged to serve in any capacity deemed fit after the party elects a new leader next month.
The FNM celebrated its 50th anniversary last Wednesday.
During its anniversary celebration at the Church of God of Prophecy on East Street yesterday, Minnis said he will never be perfect, but remains faithful to the FNM and its values as the organization seeks to rebuild following its crushing defeat at the polls last month.
“We remain in a deadly global pandemic,” Minnis said.
“I will continue to promote measures to save and protect lives and livelihoods of Bahamians, utilizing my experience in office and as a medical doctor.
“I will never tire in advocating for the needs of the poor, the disadvantaged and the more vulnerable in our society.
“I will continue to serve in the House of Assembly as the member of Parliament for Killarney.”
FNMs cheered and applauded the remark.
