St Kitts and Nevis: The Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr Terrance Drew, along with other distinguished leaders, have expressed their heartfelt felicitations to the Deputy Prime Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Deputy Leader of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party, Geoffrey Hanley on his birthday.
Prime Minister Terrance Drew wished Geoffrey Hanley by posting a picture with a caption stating, “Extending birthday wishes to Deputy Prime Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Deputy Leader of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party, Dr Geoffrey Hanley. I wish you a long life, prosperity, and a joy-filled day as you celebrate your birthday this Good Friday. May God continue to bless you richly.”
At the same time, St Kitts and Nevis, Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Ageing and Disabilities also wished the Deputy PM by writing, “Happy Birthday to our Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, Youth, Social Development, Gender Affairs, Ageing and Disabilities, Hon. Dr Geoffrey Hanley!
He also highlighted that one of the stellar programmes, the 25 Most Remarkable Teens, was started under Hanley’s directorship when he was a Director of Youth in 2011. The prestigious 25 Most Remarkable Teens Programme is the only programme of its kind in the region.
St Kitts and Nevis Young Labour Party also sent their greetings to Deputy PM through social media in which they stated, “We in Young Labour would like to take some time and wish our Parliamentary Representative for East Basseterre C1, Deputy Leader of our great party and Deputy Prime Minister of our great federation and Minister of Education et al. Dr Geoffrey Hanley, a very special happy birthday, and wished him all the very best on his special day.”
Geoffrey Hanley also penned a philosophical no on his social media handle in which he wrote: Time and again, I am reminded of the greatness of our Creator, and as I burst into the beginning of a bright new day, I am humbled and appreciative for God’s goodness in my life. Truly our Maker is faithful.”
Birthdays are an opportunity for introspection, and I am mindful that nothing I have inherited is by accident. As I ponder my next steps this year, I will continue to hold close to me the most Almighty Father who continues to hold my heart and my hand.
My dear departed mother, Gertrude, rests gently in my thoughts today, and I will always honour the life she gave me and the woman she was. Even though she’s no longer here, she remains in my heart forever. Hanley said I’m grateful to be alive and invite you to join me in celebrating Birthday 51.
