New Straits Times - - News -

GE­ORGE TOWN: Con­tinue to re­main united and loyal un­der the lead­er­ship of Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak.

This was for­mer prime min­is­ter and for­mer Umno pres­i­dent Tun Ab­dul­lah Ah­mad Badawi’s mes­sage to all Umno mem­bers ahead of the party’s 71st an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion to­mor­row.

Only by re­main­ing united and loyal to the pres­i­dent, he said, could they en­sure that the peo­ple were served to the fullest.

“And with that, the peo­ple can feel the sin­cer­ity of the ser­vices given by Umno, es­pe­cially in fight­ing for the rights of the Malays, with­out sidelin­ing the other races,” he said yes­ter­day.

Umno, Ab­dul­lah said, had faced nu­mer­ous crises.

“How­ever, thanks to the trust and loy­alty of mem­bers, the party has man­aged to over­come all crises with wis­dom.

“Past crises should serve as a guid­ance for the party to con­tinue to re­main rel­e­vant. The peo­ple’s trust in Umno will only re­main if the party is seen as sin­cere in fight­ing for their rights.”

Ab­dul­lah also said the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Umno and other Barisan Na­sional com­po­nent par­ties was the essence in en­sur­ing con­ti­nu­ity of the coun­try’s ad­min­is­tra­tion since In­de­pen­dence.
