President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom has appealed for the support of all citizens, for all government endeavours undertaken in the interest, and for the benefit of the Maldivian people. The President made this remark while speaking at a function organised by the Progressive Party of Maldives.
The President spoke extensively on the measures being taken by the administration to transform the Maldives to a middle income economy. He stated that moving forward on the current development path would take Maldivians to the top of the world. He also condemned anyone trying to prevent the administration from accomplishing its developmental goals. The President said that everyone has a share in the collective achievements of the Maldivian people.
Continuing in this regard, the President denied the claims by some, about the sale of North Nilandhe Atoll to a foreign party. Highlighting the details of the mega project planned for the atoll, President Yameen assured that the administration always adheres to the constitution and laws of the country. He further said that the administration would not let any action taken by a foreign party affect the country’s independence or obstruct the Islamic laws, and that the administration would ensure that all activities were carried out under the jurisdiction of the country’s sovereign authority.
President Yameen ascertained all citizens that the administration would disclose the details of the North Nilandhe Atoll mega project once the negotiation process was completed.
