Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarokatuh and warm greetings to all.

Alhamdulillah, I am grateful to Allah S.W.T for granting us the opportunity to move together into the new year of 2017 BC.

The year 1437 Hijrah and 2016 have passed, which is the shift in time which has already become history and memory. Various accomplishments achieved by the Tumpat District Council together with their staff throughout 2016 which should be a guideline for us to continue achieving greater successes. The slogan "My Office My Paradise" should be kept at heart by all employees of Tumpat District Council. This is important because if all employees can manage their work with full dedication, thus making Tumpat District Council as an organisation with better quality compared to previous years.

In line with the commitment to continue being a distinguished organisation in 2017 BC, all employees and the community which are the core entity of Tumpat District Council should be prepared to continue revolutionising from good to better. The management and delivery system in the Tumpat District Council organisation should be free from red tape, and other forms of bureaucracy which are the constraints of service excellence.

The local community who are members of the Tumpat District Council should also cooperate to realize the aims for Tumpat district to continue being a "Beautiful and Clean" area. Our mindset and lifestyle should be guided in accordance with the principles outlined by Islam.

Therefore, let us all employees and the community of Tumpat District Council prepare ourselves to continue working in an integrated way with full dedication to achieve the objectives henceforth realising the government's aspiration, "BUILDING TOGETHER WITH ISLAM".


Thank you.
