President of the Opposition Virgin Islands Party (VIP) Dr Natalio Wheatley has lauded the leadership qualities that he said are possessed by his party’s chairman Andrew Fahie, adding that Fahie is poised to lead the organization to general election victory.
“I believe that he is gonna lead the Virgin Islands Party to the ultimate goal of winning the government and providing good governance for the people of the Virgin Islands. I believe in Andrew Fahie,” Dr Wheatley declared while he – for the second time in his address – told party supporters to cheer the VIP leader.
“We have a strong team here; we have very strong members and we are led by a very strong chairman, Honourable Andrew Fahie.”
Dr Wheatley, during a recent VIP event, also said Fahie is energetic.
“He has energy; I don’t know where he gets it. He has a lot of energy and every pan knocks he’s there… Wherever his people are, he is there. He’s in Virgin Gorda, he’s in Jost Van Dyke, he’s in Anegada and he is East End, West End, Road Town.”
“I have to show a lot of appreciation for the leadership he has provided. He is a wise man; he is an energetic man; and he is a fighter for the people,” added Dr Wheatley.
Fahie, who beamed a broad smile while being lionized, later showered Dr Wheatley with praise.
He stated that, when he was in the public education system, he actually taught Dr Wheatley.
Fahie added: “He (Dr Wheatley) is not destroying the Virgin Islands Party – according to a few. He is helping to build.”
Fahie also emphatically stated that persons who recently joined the VIP have rights equal to those who have been members for many years.
