dedication, selflessness and professionalism and enjoined them to
ensure that the work of the Bureau progresses in his absence otherwise
he would have achieved nothing.

focused on the job and to extend the encouragement and challenge they
gave him which made him a better manager to the Ag. DG, Mr. Arabi.

his on terms, expressed gratitude to all BPSR Stakeholders among whom
are but not limited to the European Union, the World Bank, the Macarthur
Foundation and the Press for their support of governance reforms in
