CENTRAL and South Abaco MP Edison Key yesterday insisted that he was “doing fine” while confirming to The Tribune that he was under observation in the hospital.
Mr Key, 78, said his doctor admitted him after he complained on Sunday night of “experiencing chills”.
“I had the chills night before last and the doctor told me he wanted to put me in here to get some antibiotics in me. So I am feeling much, much better,” Mr Key said, when this newspaper contacted him.
“I don’t know if I had some kind of infection that brought this on me, but I’m okay.”
He could not say when he would be released.
The last several days in politics have been eventful for the former Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Corporation (BAIC) chairman.
Last week, he accused Free National Movement Leader Dr Hubert Minnis of “betraying” him over a reported snub for the nomination in Central and South Abaco for the next general election.
Following this stinging critique of Dr Minnis, it was then revealed that Mr Key, along with six other MPs signed and submitted a letter of no confidence in Dr Minnis to House Speaker Dr Kendal Major and Governor General Dame Marguerite Pindling.
This led to Dr Minnis being removed as leader of the Official Opposition, and replaced with Long Island MP Loretta Butler-Turner.
