Premier prophesies biblical relationship with new governor, pledges support

Premier Andrew Fahie

On the heels of a rather tumultuous relationship with the territory’s immediate-past governor, Premier Andrew Fahie is forging a new path — pledging his government’s full support to Governor John Rankin, even amid the Commission of Inquiry.

The Premier said he believes he and the Governor were divinely put together to take the BVI to the next level “in a partnership built on mutual respect and a partnership built on trust”.

“I know that is going to happen because that is what John and Andrew did in the Bible. And what was, is; and what is, was; and what was, will be again,” Premier Fahie prophesied.

He continued: “So you have the utmost support from my government even with the Commission of Inquiry. We welcome a transparent Commission of Inquiry because we are one hundred percent certain that when it is completed in the transparent way through the processes, that the British Virgin Islands will be able to move from its teenage years into its adulthood.”

The territory will be watching the relationship between the two leaders closely over the next few years, particularly because of the strained relationship between the Fahie administration and the previous governor.

Relations between the Fahie administration and Governor Augustus Jaspert’s office soured in 2020 when COVID-19 hit the BVI. There were allegations that the two arms of government wrestled for power as they tried to determine who should lead the territory during the health crisis.

On the day, Jaspert demitted office as governor, Premier Fahie was the only member of the government who attended the farewell ceremony. However, some sections of the public criticized his casual attire at the official event, saying it showed lack of respect for the Governor’s Office.

      The man just can’t sit down and keep his big mouth shut. The Brits are fully aware of what you are. Those in the government think they are smarter than everyone else on the planet. Well, we shall see. The Foy’s tenure in government shall soon end and he and many other politicians shall be fighting to stay out of prison. This Andy Foy is your future with the new Govenor.

    STAY AWAY FROM GOVERNMENT HOUSE UNLESS YOU WERE INVITED OR ON OFFICIAL BUSINESS. GOVERNMENT HOUSE IS NOT THE HOUSE OF GOSSIP. I STILL DON’T TRUST YOU MR. PREMIER.

    Screen shot his comments. The instant the new governor does not eat his words as the gospel he will be singing about how they against him and the people of the BVI. I am already tired of him and his governments story. Everytime they take to the aire I take out a small violin, them always the victim

  12. Greed says:

    The Premier and Skelton-Cline both claim to be God fearing men, they are both selective in their quotes and should read I Timothy 6:9-10
    “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

    Special place in hell for false prophets and Blasphemers. Don’t put God in your nonsense sir.
