Basseterre, St. Kitts, Monday, 5th November, 2018, (MyVueNews.com) – As Antigua & Barbuda celebrated its independence anniversary, the Government there has been praised for its efforts to rebuild, following the damages caused by hurricanes in 2017.
The accolades came from the Prime Minister of St. Kitts & Nevis, Dr. Timothy Harris, when he sent a congratulatory message to the Antiguan leader, as the fellow Caribbean state celebrated its independence on 1st November.
Harris said, “We are mindful that only one year ago, your beloved country was ravaged by the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Natural disasters of this nature underscore the vulnerability of Small Island States like ours and pose (a) perpetual threat to our existence.”
The St. Kitts-Nevis leader also told Prime Minister Gaston Browne, “As you celebrate this significant milestone, I pray Almighty God’s blessing and protection on you and the people of Antigua and Barbuda. May you grow in strength and prosperity in the difficult weeks and months ahead.”
Dr. Harris’ letter continued, “Your commitment and drive to unite and rebuild is therefore worthy of note, and serves as a clarion call to the people of the wider region!”
