Outgoing President Mamnoon Hussain on Saturday was given a farewell guard of honor by a smartly turned out contingent of the armed forces.
Mamnoon Hussain completed his five year tenure as President of Pakistan on Saturday.
At a special ceremony, the outgoing president also inspected the guard of honor.
Earlier, President Mamnoon held a farewell meeting with the officers and the workers of the President House and thanked them for extending cooperation to him during his five-year term.
The president told the staffers that during his tenure, he always adhered to his constitutional limits and strived to fulfill his responsibilities.
He said some misunderstandings prevailed in the society regarding the responsibilities of the president because in the past, some presidents had pursued the policies of their liking and disliking instead of following the law and the constitution.
The president said after leaving the presidency, he would restart living the life of a common man.
He advised the President House’s staffers to enable their children meet the modern trends by learning modern skills because the education could guarantee the development of any society.
