Let me say, of course too, that to the honourees I wish to congratulate you and to say that you are being honoured for not only what you have done but what you are also capable of doing. On behalf of the honourable Prime Minister and the government of the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas I wish to congratulate you Mr. Obie Ferguson and your executives for planning and executing this auspicious event this evening. The identification and recognition of these distinguished trade union leaders is an indication of the TUC’s commitment to nation building.”
