This will serve to strengthen our collective endeavour for the attainment and sustenance of a harmonious, peaceful, disciplined, fair and just society which we strive to achieve.

showing and exhibiting the well cherished values of respect, kindness, love, generosity and faithfulness for furtherance of our collective wellbeing,” he said.
