We will bring chaos under control at BAMSI, says minister

Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources Michael Pintard said recently that he is on a mission to bring order to the chaos he said exists at the country’s first agriculture and marine science institute.

It was revealed by the government that of the monies spent by the Christie administration to establish an operate the Bahamas Agriculture and Marine Science Institute (BAMSI), $75 million is unaccounted for.

Pintard described the handling of the school by the former administration as chaotic but said the government is planning to streamline operations.

“Government has an obligation to look at the best ways in which to continue those things that work and to adjust those things that do not,” Pintard told Eyewitness News.

“Government’s are continuous and so what we have sought to do is to continue to help in the refinement of the institution.”
