The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. Indeed, unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved” said Jerry. The man of various quotes gave references from the UK Prime Minister to St Paul during his speech.

In his finals words, Jerry said; “I have run with perseverance and have finished the race”. Whether I have finished my NTA race successfully, or not, is not for me to say. I will leave that for you to judge. However, what I will not leave to your judgment is the fact of knowing that I have been privileged to have been your leader, and that I am honored to have been part of your team. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
