Compatriots at home and Abroad
Ladies and Gentlemen
Allow me first to congratulate the people of Eritrea, and, the friends
of Eritrea, on the occasion of the 24th Anniversary of our
Independence. The Eritrean people have paid unparalleled sacrifices to
make national independence a reality as well as to preserve the
integrity of their sovereignty and liberation. They have persisted in
bolstering their resilience to reach the current state. Pride and
Tribute is due to them!
I also wish to express profound thanks
to the Commission of Sports and Culture and all those inside the country
and abroad who have made illustrious contributions to embellish the
Independence Anniversary celebrations conducted under the theme:
“development through resilience”.
As we celebrate Independence Day every year, we assess the journey we
have traversed and chart out, in a proactive mode, the tasks we need to
accomplish in the period ahead.
