The words of the late Clarence Bain “Andros oh my Andros” continue to echo within my spirit every time I travel to Andros.
I’m still hoping and waiting that day when the island of my birth will take her rightful place among the archipelago of islands in the Bahamas.
I know of soo many Androsian who would like to return back home, but can’t see themselves returning to a place where there is so little or no livelihood.
My questions are: What do islands such as Grand Bahamas, Abaco, or Exuma, has that Andros doesn’t? And why is there reluctance by governments past and present, to encourage foreign investors, to develope and do business in Andros?
Can someone, anyone, please help me with answers to the above questions?
