Seaga

The following statement is issued by Chancellor of The University of the West Indies, Robert Bermudez on the passing of the Most Honourable Edward Philip George Seaga, ON, PC, former Jamaican politician and the country’s fifth Prime Minister.

On behalf of the entire University community, including our staff and students, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family of the Most Honourable Edward Seaga and to the people of Jamaica. The monumental role he played in Jamaica’s development will forever be remembered and his legacy lives on in the many institutions he created during his tenure as Prime Minister.

The University of the West Indies was honoured to host him as one of our distinguished research fellows; and the Edward Seaga Collection housed at the Mona Campus Library, consisting of many of his papers, memorabilia and artefacts is an enduring contribution to students and other researchers.

To his wife, the Most Honourable Carla Seaga, and his children, we hold you in our thoughts and prayers.
