Speech from Our Guest of Honour

He emphasized the importance of navigating challenges with innovation. The world is evolving, and forward-thinking strategies are crucial for success in the dynamic landscape of today. He urged the graduands to not just adapt but thrive by embracing e-learning programs for advanced education. Establishing networks and strategic positioning will be the cornerstone of their brilliance in the future.

In this fast-paced world, adaptability is key. Joining the evolving landscape is not just a choice but a necessity. I reminded them that NRM stands as a beacon of progress, and I encouraged their support for government programs focused on socio-economic transformation.

As we celebrated the achievements of these graduates, I couldn’t help but feel hopeful for the future. Their potential is limitless, and with the right mindset, they can contribute significantly to our ever-changing world. Congratulations to the class of 2024!
