Interviewed by reporters after meeting his subordinates, Sinarimbo said: “I am confident that we have built a solid bureaucracy in the Ministry with competent and dedicated public servants.”

“May I express my profoundest gratitude to all of those who supported us during our stint as the Minister of the MILG. i step into the world of civilian life with a renewed sense of freedom.”
