We gather here once again, just about four months after your triumph in a local competition.”

“Today, you have secured a national trophy. Hence, when people question our efforts, we demonstrate that we are accomplishing meaningful endeavors that may not always be visible but bring joy and fulfillment.

If our support hadn’t motivated you, you wouldn’t have reached this level. This reflects purposeful governance and administrative efficiency.

I express gratitude and assure you that we will persist in our commitment to excellence.”
