KOTA KINABALU: Sabah UMNO will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on Feb 22.
Sabah UMNO Liaison Committee chairman Datuk Seri Musa Aman, who is also Sabah BN chairman and Sabah Chief Minister, said the celebration to be held at the Sabah State UMNO Liaison Committee Office, would
celebrated on a moderate scale in line with the current national economic situation.
“At the Sabah UMNO Silver Jubilee celebration, all 25 UMNO divisions in the state will be present and we will hold a tahlil session, Maghrib prayers and a gathering for all division representatives,” he told reporters after chairing the first 2016 Sabah UMNO Liaison Committee meeting here tonight.
Also present were Sabah UMNO Liaison Committee secretary Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin and Sabah UMNO Liaison Committee treasurer, Datuk Seri Hajiji Mohd Noor. On the meeting, Musa said apart from discussing the silver jubilee celebration, the committee also discussed several matters to be implemented this year to strengthen the party.
“We have directed all divisions to continue implementing their ‘Helping the People’ (Membara) programme in their respective areas to assist the people. We want all divisions to conduct the programme every month.
“Last year Sabah UMNO emerged champion of the Membara Award and I hope this year we will again win the award. This is because the going to the ground programme to help the people is very important to ensure UMNO remains relevant,” he said. – BERNAMA
