THE DCE DELIVERING HIS SPEECH
The DCE said the theme” Working Together, Bouncing Back Better” resonates with the times and seasons we find ourselves as a nation and was very apt, appropriate and timely.
He further touched on the recent economic challenges the country is going through and that the government is mindful of the challenges confronting the citizenry and is doing all it can to address those challenges and bring relief. He stated that, the recent government policy of introducing Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy) is to improve upon the proper social functioning of the citizenry and that, the onus lies on all to contribute their quota so that together we can mobilize the necessary resources to develop.
The DCE used the opportunity to call on all stakeholders to have a united front on the education of the school children and that, all and sundry should use our differences as our strengths in diversities and perspective towards the development of the district.
In conclusion, the DCE parted the shoulders of the security agencies for their efforts at ensuring a colorful ceremony as well as the school children, the cadet Corps, the Traditional Leaders and the general public for their support over the years and particularly availing themselves for the program.
Outstanding schools and students were awarded accordingly.
