“Today, I am pleased to be standing on these grounds and congratulate my good friends and thank them for the initiative to launch this gas station and the association. Today, we see the potential for something happening here to turn people into financially independent people because the youngsters of today can look at what you are doing and emulate you rather then emulate those who carry around guns,” he said
The association was launched with various goals and objectives, including alleviating poverty, providing health and education services, widening and deepening trust at the community level, promoting a people-based community, bringing social change, and complementing the role and not competing with government agencies, and promoting development.
“I see an opportunity now that you are forming the association to bring others in this community onboard to help develop this place called “Green Valley”. I see an opportunity for you to be an example for the young people so when they look at what is happening they say I want to be like him,” he said.
Prime Minister, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, wished the owners of the gas station every success in their endeavour and said that the men are exemplars of love, service, patriotism and pride.
“ Our country needs all of its citizens at home in St. Kitts and Nevis here and abroad to rise to the occasion and become true champions of our theme: ‘Love, Service, Patriotism and Pride’, and there is no better exponent of this than my very good friend Lennox Dennis Liburd of Cayon and Rawl Isaac.
The gas station will be opened from Sunday through Saturday from 6:00am to 8:00pm.
