I feel obliged as a Solomon Islands citizen studying overseas to warmly congratulate you on the sucess of assuming the highest responsibility as the New Prime Minister of Solomon Islands.

I join others at home and overseas to congratulate you and wish you and your New Government God's blessings now and the years ahead.

Our people in Solomon Islands have suffered so long. But I trust, that as a learnt person and with the guarding hand of the Almight, you can make a change and seek to relieve our nation from its pain and suffering.

Happy Christmas!
