Whatever has a beginning must have an end. It is an emotional moment for me. I am sure it is the same for my ever-resourceful Deputy and everyone here.

I wish to congratulate all cabinet members for your services to our dear State and I acknowledge your dedication and sacrifices since our inaugural meeting in August 2020.
