While stating their sadness in seeing their former colleagues leave the presidency staffers also wished the duo success in their new duties appointed by the head of state upon observing their performance.
The dinner party was officiated by the presidency state minister Mohamed Muse Abees who termed the elevation of the two former staffers to higher public office as a result of their diligence to service.
Speakers at the send-off party were unanimous not only in their congratulations to their former co-workers but wishes of success in their new offices included presidency protocol officer Mohamed ‘Sagadi’ and Director of personnel Saed Abdi Isse among others
The media was also well represented by secretary to the presidential press office Nassir Yusuf Dahir who said the appointment of the two to high public portfolios was a manifestation of president Silanyo’s confidence in youthful public servants.
