Najib holds vital meetings with Sabah BN officials
KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak kicked off his two-day visit to Sabah with a closed-door meeting with state Barisan Nasional officials.
The briefing was to determine the ruling coalition's level of preparedness in certain seats.
The Prime Minister had earlier chaired a meeting with the Sabah Umno liaison committee.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, his deputy Datuk Yahya Hussin and Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Mohd Shafie Apdal were among those present.
A state Barisan leader said they were asked to detail the situation in their respective constituencies and brief Najib, who is the Barisan chairman, on how they planned to tackle issues in their areas.
“The Prime Minister was very thorough. He wanted to know every detail,” he added.
Najib has a hectic schedule today, beginning with a breakfast meeting with state Barisan leaders.
He then heads to Beaufort to attend a programme with the people there.
Najib will also visit Papar and Tuaran where he will launch the Nadi Kasih programme under 1Malaysia Development Bhd to repair houses belonging to the poor.
