While in Opposition, the PM repeatedly called for Gibson, who served as WSC Executive Chairman under the former Minnis administration, to be removed from his post.

Earlier this month the PM denied his administration is conducting a political witch hunt at WSC.

Davis also said he will not interfere in the investigation.

On Friday, he insisted he could not say much since the matter is now in the hands of police.

The PM was also asked about Minister of Housing and Transport Jobeth Coleby-Davis, who denied claims that she knocked down a police officer at a carnival event over the weekend.

While he avoided that question, the PM spoke highly of Coleby-Davis in her role as housing minister.
