This is why I also want to express my gratitude to the lecturers and employees of our university for doing their best to enable you to reach this stage of your life.
Finally, it is worth saying that we have to thank all those people who helped us manage this ceremony. Especially, thank you to the Mayor of Soran, Mr Krmanj Izzat and the administration of the Occasions Hall for proving us with this venue.
