With wisdom, a fierce dedication to doing what is right, and unflagging energy, you have transformed the economic landscape of your nation. We are proud to name you Doctor of Humane Letter"
Elizablaze: I don't know if the condition is the same, but having held the post of Financial Secretary four different times at different places myself, I have realized that people tend to think as the financial secretary you make all the final decision on the finance in your care, when actually you're like a caretaker. You cannot reject the call when your boss calls for a release of fund, you can only advise or inform the committee what's going on. As far as I have all the transaction documented I have my proof when it goes haywire.
