Breakfast Party for Beneby’s Transition to Department of Immigration

Friday September 1st brought to a close the journey of ADOI Dwight Beneby through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For more than a year he served as Head of the Consular Division, for which he says he was eternally grateful for the experience.

He complimented the staff on their level of competence and professionalism and wished them all the best as they continued working to the best of their abilities.

He further expressed his confidence in the fact that he was leaving the department in very capable hands as Mrs. Ordette Wells-Simms assumes the leadership of the division.

The staff hosted a breakfast in his honor at which time Ms. Meryl Deveaux brought greetings and expressed best wishes on behalf of the Minister and the entire Headquarters staff.
