Basseterre, St. Kitts, 19th September, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris said the people of St. Kitts and Nevis must be committed to building an even stronger country.

In his 19th September Independence Day Address on ZIZ Radio & TV, Dr. Harris said the Team Unity Government has been committed to the building of a strong country, and one in which the people could be proud.

“We look back to the achievements of our forebears, who had the vision to strive for this nation’s sovereignty, and can hold our heads high with just pride. As we look back and reflect upon our achievements,” Prime Minister Harris said.

Looking to the future, Harris, who is also the National Security minister, called on citizens to support the Police.

“There is more work that you, our citizens and residents, can do in supporting the police to drive out guns and drugs from our communities.  We must remain firm in our commitment to protect our precious children from the harm that is caused by illicit drugs and illegal trade in and use of firearms,” said Harris.

Speaking of seizing opportunities and overcoming challenges, the Prime Minister stated, “If you have a bright idea for business, step forward. If you want to advance your education, step forward. If you want to develop your career, step forward. If you want to help shape our health care, step forward. If you want to create a safer society, step forward.”

Harris said the people must create the future together, as he wished the nation a happy Independence Day.

“Happy 35th Independence to one and all!  May we serve, love and honour each other and our precious Land of Beauty on this 35th Anniversary of Independence,” said Harris in his best wishes for the nation.
