KOTA KINABALU (Bernama): A total of 25 pro tem chiefs from Armada, the youth wing of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), received their letters of appointment Saturday (May 25).
They received their letters from Armada chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman. Also present was Sabah Bersatu chief co-ordinator Datuk Hajiji Noor.
Speaking to reporters after the event, Syed Saddiq said it was a historical moment for Armada, which had officially spread its wings to Sabah.
"I see Bersatu Armada moving fast and I hope the momentum continues in reaching out to more young people in Sabah.
"I want to emphasise that the foundation of the party's strength is in young people and I hope those who have just received their appointment letters understand the basis of the Armada struggle ... there is no wall separating us," he said.
The Youth and Sports Minister said he would soon hold discussions with the wing to look into issues related to the youth, adding that the party was expecting more than 10,000 young people to join Armada by next year.
Meanwhile, Sabah Armada chief Mohd Isquzawan Israq Arsit said that with the appointment letters, the wing had received a "tonic" that would spur them on to work efficiently. - Bernama
