CONGRATULATION TO CBU GRADUATES
On behalf of the party and on my own behalf I wish to convey our heartfelt congratulations to the Copper belt University students that will be graduating this Friday. There is no greater joy than to see our youths choosing the path of knowledge over ignorance as they prepare to take over the mantle of leadership in different areas of life. The development of every nation lies squarely on the shoulders of the youth and its scholars. Our country is not only endowed with great natural resources but also with intelligent and hardworking human resource as proven by those that have graduated and those graduating this week at Copper belt University.
It is my prayer that those graduating this week will continue to give from their potential a high level of public services and sacrifices necessary to help lift our nation from poverty and all kinds of sufferings being experienced by our countrymen and women. Before making a decision to seek greener pastures outside our country we must remember that we hold within us a key that can open the great doors of success and development within our country and bring about our much needed development and change. The problems that we face as a nation are man made and can be solved by man and you are that man. With the knowledge you have gained combined with your God given potential and hard work, not even the sky is the limit for you as an individual and nation at large.
