Prime Minister Pays Tribute To The Late Elvin Nimrod

PR – Prime Minister, Dr. the Right Honourable Keith Mitchell is deeply  saddened by the passing of his former colleague and longstanding parliamentary  representative, the late Elvin Nimrod. 

Mr. Nimrod passed away on Saturday, February 6, 2021, in the United States. 

A lawyer by profession, Mr. Nimrod entered the political arena in 1997 when he  became a member of the Senate. Two years later, he was elected Parliamentary  Representative for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, a designation he held until the  2018 general elections. 

The Prime Minister recalls the late Elvin Nimrod as someone who selflessly served his  country and people. 

He said, “Brother Nimrod gave much of his life to the development of Grenada,  Carriacou and Petite Martinique. He was generous in his service to both Government  and the New National Party. He placed special emphasis on representing his  constituency, serving his constituents with passion and dedication. As the Deputy  Prime Minister for several years, I had utmost confidence in his ability to get the job  done.” 

Dr. Mitchell, who is also political leader of the New National Party, said Mr. Nimrod’s  passing is a great loss. “He was a faithful member of the NNP and his genuine love  for people resonated with party ideals. His commitment never wavered whether the  party was in Government or in opposition. The NNP has suffered a great loss, he will  be greatly missed,” Dr. Mitchell stated. 

The late Elvin Nimrod served in many capacities including Deputy Prime Minister and Attorney General. His ministerial portfolios included Legal Affairs, Local Government,  Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, Foreign Affairs and International Trade. 

Mr. Nimrod will be granted an official funeral, the date for which will be announced  later. 

National flags will be flown at half mast from Tuesday, February 9, 2021 for one week  in honour of the late Elvin Nimrod.
