CDB, SKNLP pay tribute to Vance Amory

By: Staff Reporter, SKNVibes.com

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - TRIBUTES and condolences continue to pour in for former Premier and Federal Minister Vance Amory. 
     
    The Federation woke up to the sad news on Saturday (Apri. 2) that the Premier had passed away after seeking treatment in the United Kingdom for an illness. Many across the political spectrum took to social media to express their condolences to his bereaved family.
     
    The Caribbean Development Bank has joined the many sympathisers in reflecting on the life of a political stelwart who was loved across both St. Kitts and Nevis, despite political differences.
     
    The Bank, in a statement, expressed its “deepest sympathy to the Government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis on the passing of former Premier of Nevis, Vance Amory”.
     
    “Mr. Amory’s public life embraced service to the Region and as a longstanding Alternate Governor of CDB, he strongly supported the Bank’s work in reducing poverty and accelerating development to improve the lives of the region’s citizens. He continually called for greater social dialogue across the region and until recently, was contributing to deliberations at CARICOM, representing St. Kitts and Nevis at the Heads of Government Inter-sessional Meeting in Belize in February.” 
     
    The CDB noted that the region has lost a “great leader and a dedicated public servant”, pointing out that the  stalwart “leaves behind an indelible legacy which will continuously redound to the benefit of the people of Nevis and the wider Caribbean”. 
     
    Despite being political foes, former Leader of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party Denzil Douglas paid tribute last evening (Apr. 3) by having a minute of silence for the fallen politician.
     
    Newly appointed Leader of the Party, Dr. Terrance Drew also paid his respects during the launch of the SKNLP’s candidates last evening. 

     

    He told the gathering that despite the two parties share different political ideologies, Amory made an impact on Nevis and the entire Federation.
     
    Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris, Premier Mark Brantley, Deputy Prime Minister Shawn Richards, Leader of the Nevis Reformation Party Janice Daniel-Hodge and others in the political arena all reflected on Amory’s life and the indelible footprint he has left inthe sands of time.
