Speaking on the development of the federation over the past 27 years Nisbett- who was one of the first honorees for culture in 1983- said we are not utilizing our human and natural resources enough as more energy is being put into playing political games.
He said “we need to pay more respect to our human resource” as opposed to politically sidelining people as in the business of selling our country we need to do so with our best resources.
In addition, Nisbett said also, land should be distributed locally to aid in the development of agriculture, “we have too much square pegs in round holes and that is the problem, St. Kitts can become the hub of the entire region as we have what it takes to make it happen and I think we should pay more attention to people who want to work.”
Meanwhile, Nisbett said he has dubbed National Heroes day which will be celebrated this Thursday, “Reflections”, where he will be highlighting the works of three individuals who have contributed significantly to the development of the St. Kitts/Nevis.
He said he will be featuring the work of historian and founding member of the St. Kitts Nevis Trades and Labor Union, Edgar Challenger who he said was one of the persons who set the platform for the political and social development of St. Kitts/Nevis.
Nisbett said Basil Henderson, 4H organizer and Robert Manning who orchestrated the development of the National Provident Fund and Social Security, will also be featured at Thursday’s event.
Also, he said there will be a ceremony where persons such as Sir Probyn Inniss, Walford Gumbs who will be speaking on trade unionism prior to the development of independence, Tapley Seaton, who will be giving a presentation on the federation’s independence along with other guest speakers.
