ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Monday, November 3rd 2014 [ME NewsWire]
On the occasion of the anniversary of the ascension of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to his high position of President of the UAE, Lt. General HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, delivered a speech:
“Ensuing the rise of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to becoming President of the UAE, merely a decade of time has passed, yet it has been one worth centuries’ weight in achievements. It has been a noble era for the country founded by virtuous forefathers, and succeeded by the most honorable of descendants.
The tongue is unable and the eyes are relentless, both incapable of grasping the achievements that may overwhelm mountains but will never be capable of overcoming the humbled hearts of great men – men who are never lacking in eminence, and ones who near perfection in morality, honesty, mercy, and compassion.
May we all reminisce upon the transcendent speech so eloquently bequeathed by His Highness upon his ascension to the reign of power. In an oath to stay united and unified forevermore, the promises were of development, stability, prosperity, and pursuance along the path of our forefathers. Promises fulfilled, today we behold the pearl of our eras, a country of blossoming development and of abundant prosperity. A blessed world upon the raise of His Highness’ palm, he worked for the betterment of his people, leaving others to long for a leader such as he. We pledge you our loyalty, and our undying allegiance. Oh, you who have given his effort to this country, and you, who has given his heart to his people and has kept his promise.
Finally, from myself and on behalf of all of the staff at the Ministry of Interior, it is an honor for me to raise the most sincere congratulations to His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE during this precious occasion. This is an honorable occasion to renew our vows of loyalty to the leader of our march, may Allah keep him a guiding light to the country, and an example of wisdom to all peoples and countries.”
