Prime Minister Andrew Holness is accompanied by his wife Juliet, former Prime Ministers and dignitaries at his induction into the University of West Indies’ Honour Park.

The long-overdue induction of Prime Minister Andrew Holness into the University of West Indies’ (UWI) Honour Park took place this morning.

The Honour Park was established in 2005, to celebrate graduates who are former or current CARICOM heads and prime ministers.

However, ahead of the induction of Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Keith Rowley, earlier this year, The Gleaner brought it to public attention that Holness, who is a graduate of the institution, was not recognised.

UWI has since apologised, indicating that it was an oversight.

Among those who attended today's ceremony are former prime ministers Edward Seaga and Bruce Golding, Opposition Leader Dr Peter Phillips, Government ministers, members of the diplomatic corps and individuals from the public and private sector.
