"As a matter of fact, the selection process was very competitive and In consider all the distinguished citizens who have scaled the hurdles most fortunate indeed. 

"As the saying goes, 'to whom much is given, much is expected.' I, therefore, charge the Chairmen and all members of these new Boards to consider themselves as part of a larger team of visionaries. 

"Therefore, I will urge you to study the vision of our Administration and match it against the specific mandate of your Boards. You should all regard your appointment as a call to selfless service. 

"You should all collectively and individually work hard to add value to your Boards rather than constitute yourselves into cost centres that further eat into the already lean finances of Government.

"As members of Boards of Governments Agencies, you are all enjoined to make probity your watchword, and be prudent in the management of both human and material resources under your care, you must consider all members of staff as the important catalysts to achieving the greatness of your Boards.
