Good afternoon.

I am delighted to be part of this twenty-fourth graduation ceremony, and more so when this august institution is commemorating its silver jubilee.

Along with the rest of the country, I would like to congratulate the fraternity of Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) Nkozi for the 25 years of dedicated service in the education sector. Special tribute is owed to those who had the vision to establish UMU Nkozi and nurture it through its infancy to become one of the best institutions of higher education in Uganda today.
