The Most Honourable Edward Seaga, ON, PC

The University of Technology, Jamaica notes with profound regret, the passing of former Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Edward Seaga, earlier today.

Mr Seaga has served as a distinguished Chancellor of our University from 2010 to the present. During this period, he was a major source of inspiration and a guide to the leadership of the University. He was instrumental in annual meetings of the University and lent his wealth of experience and expertise to all aspects of the University’s work. He was also Pro-Chancellor at UTech, Ja. between 2008 and 2010.

Edward Seaga was a pioneer in all aspects of Jamaican life. At the University, we recall his most recent public appearance in our community. This was Mr Seaga’s Distinguished Public Lecture in commemoration of the University’s 60th Anniversary. That lecture, which was concerned with the “Origins and Development of Jamaican Music” saw Mr Seaga at his spellbinding best. He reminded us of his outstanding oratorical skills, his deep love of Jamaica and Jamaicans, and of his extensive knowledge of Jamaican cultural and religious practices.

Here’s the latest on the resignation of Sen. the Hon Ruel Reid, Minister of Education, Youth and Information. We take particular note of these developments because the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information (MOEYI) is the parent ministry of our national university–University of Technology, Jamaica.

In addition, we will watch this matter keenly because the University has once again been placed in *wait mode on the matter of whether the Government will act justly and increase the subvention to our national university, commensurate with need.
