While we were working together with Minister Roda Jama Ilmi, I thank her for her responsibility, good work, ability and morals that she worked with us. The ministry does not work only in the morning, it works in the morning, in the afternoon, at night, any time at any place of work that is required for that she does not attend never happen, except when she is on vacation. The Minister is now going to a Ministry where she has worked in the past and which has really contributed to the search for recognition in the world, and I am confident that it will bear fruit. A good colleague is leaving us today, but we say goodbye and we pray that God will make it easy for her in the new task assigned to her. We welcome the new Deputy Minister of the Ministry named Mr. Saleeban Jama Dirie, the Minister is not new to the Ministry he knows its people, its resources and its work, but only one thing has not changed which is revenue collection.

When you were in the Ministry the budget was much smaller than it is today, that means we need to work harder than before to meet the projected income, God willing we will come out, so welcome to the Ministry again , and now I want to transfer the position to you and stand next to me both of you“.
