Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Rector Prof. Dr. Aykut Hocanın released a message on the occasion of 97th anniversary of the 29 October Republic Day. Prof. Dr. Hocanın’s message reads as follows:
“I would like to celebrate the 97th year of the Republic of Turkey established by Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, his comrades in arms and Turkish nation’s great struggles. 29th of October is celebrated every year in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus as in the Republic of Turkey. As the Eastern Mediterranean University, we will continue to follow Atatürk’s steps and his revolutions with adapting Atatürk’s saying “Science is the most real guide for civilization, for life, for success in the world”.
On this occasion, I celebrate the Republic Day of all Turkish people, and remember with respect and mercy all our martyrs, especially the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his comrades in arms. ”
