Najib arrives in Sabah for two-day working visit to Keningau


KOTA KINABALU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak flew in here today for a two-day working visit to Keningau.

Najib, who was accompanied by his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, arrived in a special aircraft at Kota Kinabalu International Airport at about 11.10 am.

They were received by Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman and his wife Datin Seri Faridah Tussin, the deputy chief ministers, members of the state cabinet, heads of federal and state government departments, community leaders and students as well as members of the Kadazandusun Murut community.

Some 30 minutes later, Najib and Rosmah, along with Musa and Faridah, flew by helicopter to Keningau.

Najib is scheduled to open the Sabah Handicraft Centre there before proceeding to Sook to perform the ground-breaking for the Keningau Livestock Integrated Centre and attend a meet-the-people session in the evening.

The prime minister is scheduled to attend the ‘Tadau Kaamatan’ Malaysia Open House at the Keningau Sports Complex at 8 pm today.

Tomorrow, he will go on a walkabout in the towns of Keningau and Bingkor and attend a tea reception at the Rumah Besar, a house that belonged to the late Sedomon Gunsanad, a native leader who hosted Najib’s father Tun Abdul Razak Hussein some 50 years ago during the formative years of Malaysia.

Najib will also attend a meet-the-people session and launch the Kadazandusun Murut College in Pisompuruan Square, Tambunan.

The prime minister is scheduled to arrive here by helicopter in the afternoon and then return to Kuala Lumpur. — BERNAMA
