All Umno members are reminded to safeguard the party’s presidential institution because failure to do so will cause the sacred Malay party to become weak.
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak said if the presidential institution was being interrupted, it would be difficult for the elected leaders to lead and carry out their duties.
“Take good care of the party and the UMNO presidential institution, not me. Love me as the president because one day my successor will take over (duties of president).
“If the party is weak, who will become the leader to bring us forward? So to make sure that the party is not weak, all divisions need to keep the harmony,” he said.
Najib said this when opening the simultaneous delegates meeting of the Bukit Gantang, Taiping, Bagan Serai and Parit Buntar Umno divisions at the Advanced Technology Training Centre (ADTEC) here today.
