Farewell programme for outgoing director, IPR, Limawati Ao was observed on October 31 at the IPR conference hall, directorate of Information and Public Relations.

According to DIPR report, Limawati Ao in his farewell speech narrated his journey in the department where he first joined as an information officer and subsequently his district postings in Wokha and Mokokchung as DPRO. He said that he was encouraged by the attitude of senior officers about the main objectives of the department motivated him to give his best service. He also called it his fate that he was appointed to serve in the department of IPR, as he enjoyed the work assigned to him to serve the government and the people. 

He spoke about the struggles and difficulties he faced while serving as an officer in the districts due to lack of proper equipment and technologies in earlier days but had managed to perform his duties with any available resource. In the directorate too, Limawati said there were hardships but today, with the inputs and contributions from the officers and staff, the IPR department was the frontrunner in technology to carry out all the work through modern technologies and the efficient staff behind it all. 

Advisor, IPR, SCERT & Village Guards, Toshi Wungtung in his special exhortation remarked that Limawati was an inspiring director with outstanding leadership quality and an efficient administrator. He stated that IPR has been a glamorous department under his directorship and quoted him “Truly a captain of the ship”. He also pointed that all this became possible because of the love, respect and teamwork that exist in the department.

He said that the retiring director will be leaving a priceless legacy, a legacy which cannot be bought, rather, which can only be achieved through good personality and character. Work ethics was the most important thing and he believed that the least the department can do was follow the legacy of work ethics and tributes which Limawati leaves behind. Wungtung appreciated the contributions made towards the department and hoped his successors would continue to bring forward the department to be a monument among other departments in the state.
