SANDAKAN: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has urged the UMNO Youth and Puteri wings to utilise the social media in reaching out to the younger generation.
Musa who is also an UMNO Supreme Council member noted that social media such as Facebook and Twitter were now widely used by youths to communicate and obtain information.
He said the two UMNO wings could use social media as a platform to deliver accurate information on the party and government.
“Irresponsible parties are using facebook and twitter to slander leaders including UMNO president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who is also the Prime Minister.”
“They made wild allegations to split UMNO in their attempt to seize power,” he said at the simultaneous opening of the Libaran UMNO division Wanita, Youth and Puteri meetings here today.
Meanwhile, Musa who is the division’s chief said UMNO appreciated the contributions of the three wings in the party’s struggle and had never belittled their roles.
He said the wings complemented the party in providing a comprehensive machinery, hence why UMNO continued to remain strong.- BERNAMA
