#Bahamas, August 16, 2017 – Nassau – Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon. Peter Turnquest led the verification process for FNM Members of Parliament prior to participating in the weekly Cabinet Meeting on Tuesday.
The men were two of 15 Cabinet Ministers to take advantage of the verification opportunity as Public Treasury Department staff are stationed at the Cecil V. Wallace-Whitfield Centre to conduct the process for public service employees there. Other honourable ministers verified yesterday were: Brent Symonette, Carl Bethel, Desmond Bannister, Jeffrey Lloyd, Marvin Dames, Frankie Campbell, Dionisio D’Aguilar, Michael Pintard, Darren Henfield, Senators Dion Foulkes, Kwasi Thompson and Elsworth Johnson.
It was explained in a BIS media release that Cabinet Ministers, Romauld Ferreira, Lanisha Rolle and the Brensil Rolle are off island while Health Minister, Dr. Duane Sands had already completed his verification. #VerificationCentres were established since August 8 and public sector workers who do not register by end of the month, will have their salaries interrupted, though not ceased, until they do get verified.
