I am truly humbled to accept the appointment as the new president of the club at a time it has attained a lot of great things. I am likewise challenged to fill the shoes of a truly great man before me whom I personally admire and thank for placing the club on a platform so high.
Lest I over dwell on this new appointment, let me right away extend my heartfelt gratitude to the entire Pure Platinum Play family on this great occasion as we celebrate our Silver Jubilee, a journey of true inspiration and passion.
