SEREMBAN: Datuk Mohd Zafir Ibrahim has been appointed the new Negri Sembilan state secretary replacing Datuk Seri Dr Razali Ab Malik who retired on Jan 6.

“I am confident that he will also be able to help the state government continue with its agenda for the peoples’ wellbeing and ensure the smooth operation of the state administration," he said.

Mohd Zafir thanked Aminuddin for the appointment and the trust placed in him.

He pledged to do his best to lead the state public service machinery and ensure the state government's vision, mission and aspirations are realised.

Mohd Zafir graduated with an honours degree in Islamic Studies (Dakwah and Leadership) and a Master's in Information Technology from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
