ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The United Progressive Party (UPP) has joined those remembering the life and times of Roy Boyke, who died Monday night in his native Trinidad after a prolonged illness.
Boyke made his mark in media in Trinidad & Tobago and later, across the region, as a political strategist.
Chairman of the UPP Harold Lovell said Boyke, who was instrumental in the party’s historic victory in 2004, had an astute, keen, political mind.
“He was critical to our election campaigns, primarily in 2004. We worked together to usher in, not just a change of administration in Antigua & Barbuda, but a positive change in governance. He provided invaluable support and we will always remember his contribution,” Lovell said.
“On my own behalf and on behalf of the United Progressive Party, I extend condolences to his family and all who are left to mourn his loss. We trust they will find comfort in the way Roy distinguished himself in his endeavours,” Lovell added.
