He said he expected a new dawn under the new dispensation; I expect that  the President would appoint people who can deliver into the right positions.  He urged the new political class to give the President a chance to deliver on his transformation agenda.  "We expect good governance under this new dispensation; We believe he would make things work better in this country as he did it for us when he was our Governor in Bayelsa" he said.

The event was preceded by a tight security cordon which was thrown around  the Mogadishu police academy of the event.  All access roads leading to the area which is located beside the port and airport  were sealed off by thousands of armed forces and AMISOM security personnel. The security  was tide and operatives had identification tags. Even with the tags, invitees had to go through series of checks conducted  by several layers of security personnel.  Private cars were completely refused entry into any of the adjoining streets to the academy. Owners of such cars had to park their vehicles at designated places and then board buses that had been provided to convey invitees from different parts of the world to the venue.

The ceremony ended with 21 gun salute after which the President went to exchange greetings with the large number of  Heads  of State and other foreign dignitaries who attended the event.
