No official song to mark one year of President’s term


Jan 11, 2016 (LBO) – Secretary to the President P.B. Abeykoon says no official song has been released to mark one year of democratic governance under the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena.

The Secretary to the President further said that a song titled “Nuba Ape Minisek” has been erroneously disseminated as Sri Lanka President’s Official Song for 2016.

“It has been played by some social networking websites without the permission of the President as well as the Presidential Secretariat,” Abeykoon said.

The song came under heavy criticism after social activists claimed it as a song produced by a bard.
