  1. Congratulations ACB Caribbean!

    Another ec$100,000 to the covid fund… We look forward to seeing from the Minister of Finance the transparent accounting for all these donations… specifically what exactly was procured with the funds and how much the ‘administration’ fees are.

  2. I wonder if it will be a talking point by Franz today as to whether it was a donation or did the government go about begging.

  3. ACB has been around so long and it is still behind in an important areas that is very bad for the technological era that we are in. Have you eve been in that bank? It has the the longest waiting lines in town. It’s very frustrating by just opening the door and look inside seeing the long lines.

  4. ACB:Did you give any of your customers a break on their obligations? My Bank sent me Emails and texts offering me breaks.What did you ACB do for your customers?That $100,000 could have gone to help many.What is really concerning in this matter.The Government of Antigua and Barbuda appears to broke/broken.Going cap in hand to the Hadeed Co. ACB and others to get monies to buy Vaccines.When MP Weston did say Antigua has access to $500 million.So there was not a need to go begging with cap in hand.Are you begging from your Corporate Citizens.If they do not give.Then what?

  5. They need to donate a $200,000 food fund also. Man should not live by vaccine alone, alot of people are struggling nearly a 100 million people donating for vaccine lets deal with other aspect of life to survive not vaccine alone, vaccines without food is still death we need a balance
