It was with much sadness that I learned earlier today, of the sudden passing of former Premier of Nevis, Ambassador Vance Amory.
I extend my deepest sympathies to his wife, children and extended family.
I had the privilege of working with Ambassador Amory in the federal government of St. Kitts and Nevis from 2015-2020; he was Senior Minister and Minister of Labour and I as Deputy Prime Minister.
I shall always remember him for the role he played, along with myself as Leader of the People’s Action Movement, PAM, and he as Leader of the Concerned Citizens Movement, CCM, jointly working with the Leader of the PLP, Dr Timothy Harris, to help fashion a government of national unity.
He will be remembered for his tremendous work to advance the cause of his fellow Nevisians and the people of the federation in general.
Vance Amory was a committed citizen and leader, whose legacy of achievements should inspire future and present generations.
At this moment of sorrow, our prayers and thoughts must be with the wife and family of our late colleague and former Premier of Nevis.
Farewell, my brother, Ambassador Vance Amory.
