SKN’s TEAM UNITY Leader’s Statement On The Nevis Treasury/VAT Office/IRD Office Fire
Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in Nevis as they rebound from yesterday morning’s devastating fire that totally destroyed the Nevis Treasury Office, the VAT Office and the Philatelic Bureau and severely damaged the contents of the Inland Revenue Office.
Yes these are very critical public institutions that have been ravaged by a fire of unknown origin, at this particular moment in time, but I am certain that the resolve and resilience of the people of Nevis remain strong. Nevisians are a renowned people of faith and we know that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.
We know that there is hope in Nevis and that your administration, under the good leadership of Premier Vance Amory, has already started the recovery process. God bless you all during this very difficult time.
