Prime Minister Gaston Browne says the people’s business will remain his priority as leader of the country.
Browne was responding to United Progressive Party leader Harold Lovell who advised him to leave office if he wants to be a farmer.
However, the prime minister says he won’t be farming as much as the opposition thinks since his son Djorne Browne,25, would be running the enterprise.
Browne says his son is qualified at the university level and will manage the farm’s day to day operations.
He also denies a conflict of interest.
The prime minister says he doesn’t intend to compete with local farmers as his plans don’t involve selling vegetables which are in abundance here.
He says while he is an investor in the farm, he is not a director, and what is important is that he has disclosed the extent of his involvement.
Browne says all the equipment being used on the farm were procured privately and government’s resources are not being used.
