President Irfaan Ali has expressed sadness at the passing of Canterbury.
The Head of State said, “I am deeply saddened to have learnt of the passing of my dear friend, Lennox Canterbury.
I had the privilege of working with Lennox on many projects at the Ministry of Housing and Water, the Ministry of Tourism , Industry and Commerce and as President. His most recent project was Guyana’s 55th Independence Anniversary.
As Minister, we worked together on numerous projects- Guyana Festival, Building Expo, GuyExpo and numerous other national events.
His love for culture and country was boundless and unquestionable,” Ali said in a statement.
He added: “In our most recent conversation, he was excited about the ‘One Guyana’ concept and was blooming with his own ideas on how this could be realised.
He was a true nationalist, and I will greatly miss him. My sincere condolences go out to his family at this difficult time. May his soul rest in peace.”
