PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is a calm and brave leader who is not afraid of challenges.
The UMNO vice-president said the prime minister is not afraid of anybody and is very calm when dealing with any situation.
“For example, leaders of Syria and Libya failed to defend their countries. On the contrary, our country is still strong and surviving under the prime minister,” he told reporters after opening Akademi Kepimpinan Kapten Hussein (AKKH) here, Thursday night.
Hishammuddin said this when asked to comment on a posting by former New Straits Times group editor-in-chief Datuk A. Kadir Jasin in his blog Thursday.
Earlier, in his speech, the defence minister said AKKH who bears the name of his late father Tun Hussein Onn, Malaysia’s third prime minsiter, is capable of producing future UMNO leaders.–BERNAMA
