Arthur Nibbs - Representative for Barbuda

nibbs campaign posterArthur was first elected to the Barbuda Council in 1979 and served as Chairman for 7 years altogether, from 1985 to 1989, 1997 to 1999, and 1999 to 2000. Arthur was educated at the Holy Trinity School and then left Barbuda to go to the Antigua Grammar School. He was employed as an assistant air traffic controller at the V C Bird International Airport and worked as personnel manager at the K Club. In 1980 Arthur Nibbs was a BPM member of the delegation that met at Lancaster House in London to discuss independence for Antigua and Barbuda. At this point he was a strong advocate of a separate independent future for Barbuda from the island of Antigua.

Arthur's long career in politics has seen him move to the ABLP from BPM where he was a member twice.  In the past he has formed several political parties in his journey to power, including the New Barbuda Development Movement (NBDM), the Barbuda Peoples Movement for Change (BPMC), the Organisation for National Reconstruction (ONR), and the Barbuda Independence Movement (BIM).  In 2014 he finally won the Barbudan seat for the ABLP. 

Arthur was already a Senator and Chairman of the Barbuda Council following the 2013 Council elections, when Gaston Brown and Asot Michael of the ABLP came to Barbuda to support his campaign. Inevitably he was rewarded with the position of Minister for Agriculture, Lands and Barbudan Affairs and continues to cement his relationship with Antigua by facilitating the development of land by foreigners on Barbuda.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
