    It is a great delight for me to hear about Mr. Hamid Hussain Azad’s unanimous achievement, as he deserves. He was my ideal leader while I was studding in Government College of commerce, Chittagong. It was my great curiosity for long since as to his where about, as I was unable to come to know about his present position. However By the mercy of almighty Allah, mr. Hamid H. Azad finally secured his position as we anticipated. Obviously, he will serve his entrusted responsibility by dint of his uncompromised honesty and sincerity as well with his efficiency and sufficiency of professionalism.
