I would simply like to this time and space to congratulate and thank the MP for Fataleka Hon. Steve Abana for his bold move in forfeiting his parliamentary entitlements (if approved by PEC) or awards.

i honestly believe that it takes a man with courage and principle to actually forfeit an award like that (SBD$250,000 and SBD$50,000 for his spouse) especially in such dire economic times.

As a native of Fataleka I am very proud to have Mr. Abana as our leader and I commend you sir on being an inspiration for us the youths of your constituency.
