BAU: Mas Gading MP Datuk Anthony Nogeh Gumbek has lauded the efforts of Singai Sports and Recreational Club in promoting taekwondo in the constituency.
He urged the club to continue promoting the martial art among local youths here as it can inculcate high sense of discipline and responsibility among its members.
