I would like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to all of you for everything we have accomplished together.
I am pleased to say that the year we just ended was a good one for our country.
We have made significant progress in key areas and for this; I want to thank you all.
Our economy, our security, the well-being of Rwandans and the peaceful elections that brought us all together. These are all achievements that marked the past year.
Unity among Rwandans, regional cooperation and good relations with nations across the globe were all made possible by working together with commitment and determination. I thank each one of you.
I want us to continue on this path of progress we have been on for some years.
Working together, learning, serving our nation and building the capacity to safeguard what we have gained, to ensure that nothing can reverse this or destabilise our country.
There will always be those who want to undermine Rwanda. We must ensure that they never succeed, wherever they come from or whatever means they have.
This is why building our capabilities is essential. We have seen that when Rwandans work together, no goal is unattainable. We must work to ensure our progress is sustained for generations to come.
Fellow Rwandans, women and men, and especially, you, young Rwandans. The goals we have set for ourselves, of building and protecting this country, is the responsibility of each one of us.
Every Rwandan must play their part.
Let this New Year be marked by even bigger strides in our journey of unity, development and security for generations to come.
May God bless you all.
