Government says Reports about renaming Yasco are fake

Lionel "Max Hurst, Government's Chief of Staff

The government says that the broadcast being circulated via Whatsapp and other social media stating that the “Yasco Sports Complex, once refurbished, will be renamed the Chet Greene Track & Field Facility,” is false and that it did not originate from any government official or agency.

The broadcast has been making the rounds on social media since yesterday and has many questioning its validity.

The message goes on to say that, “it was agreed that former minister of sports EP Chet Greene had made an invaluable contribution to the development of sports in Antigua and Barbuda not only during his tenure as minister of sports but also during his tenure as president of the National Olympic Committee (NOC). Greene has also made a significant impact through his service to other sporting bodies over the years. As such, the Cabinet agreed that Greene was befitting of the recognition.”

The Government’s Chief of Staff Lionel “Max” Hurst refuted the text in its entirety referring to it as “fake” and added that, “Minister Greene was absent from the Cabinet on Thursday. He is no on island even now nor then.”

  2. Liard Nel Max Hurst there is a date on the message. That message had nothing to do with last cabinet meeting. Me really start to feel dunce!🙈

  3. I think Yasco should be renamed Sir Lester Bird Sports Ground, the library should be rename Vere Bird Jr Libray, ABS should be renamed Purcell Bird Super Station. Next rename Antigua Birds Islland 🤔.

    • Purcell Bird Super Station? That’s funny.
