Peter Nygard has been the “go to man” for cultural and sporting events

Recently there has been some not so pleasant occurrences as it relates to a well known resident of the Bahamas and indeed Lyford Cay, Peter Nygard.

Free-spirited Mr. Nygard, has been the “go to man” for cultural and sporting events, both locally and internationally. Many teams, including national teams, travelling abroad, have enjoyed his unmeasured support.

Many with extreme medical urgency called on his good nature and experienced his generosity, without fanfare or publicity.

I would go on the limb and say that some key politicians and businessmen have exploited his free-handedness.

As a humane and sensitive gentleman, many who would not have been welcomed in Lyford Cay otherwise, have been able to visit and enjoy the amenities of Nygard Cay.

A man who has extended himself to help so many people cannot be all bad. He has shown his benevolence when many well-positioned Bahamians wavered.

His only sin is that he harboured too many “locals”.

So let us not rush to judge anyone, especially Peter Nygard, few of us are qualified to point fingers.
