KUCHING: Declaring he has warrior spirit, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak says he will fight to stay on as Prime Minister, telling a crowd of 10,000 on Thursday, â€œDo not underestimate meâ€.
â€œI will work harder. The blood in me is not any blood. Sometimes I might look very diplomatic. But I have warrior spirit,â€ Najib said at the â€œSarawak for Najibâ€ rally held at Stadium Perpaduan here.
â€œOn 1MDB, we will solve it soon, and all other problems. My heart is with you Sarawak, we see what problems we can solve together.â€
Najib also repeated that he had strongly supported Tun Dr Mahathir Mohd when the former PM came under attack.
â€œWhen there are no problems, everyone supports. Right? Itâ€™s easy. But when there are bit of problems, I believe the problems can be solved.
â€œDuring the other PMâ€™s era, there were lots of problems too. Bigger problems sometimes.
â€œBut I strongly supported him for 22 years. I was very loyal (and) because of leaders like me, he stayed on for 22 years.
â€œThis is my era as Prime Minister. I will not step down because of one person.â€
Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem gave Najib ringing support, saying this Prime Minister had done more for Sarawak than all five previous Prime Ministers combined.
Adenan said Barisan Sarawak would support Najib because “this is the right thing to do”.
Adenan added he was in discussion with the Federal Government to empower the Sarawak Government and for more oil and gas royalties.-The Star
