Malaysia will be safer and secure if Umno continues to lead the country, said prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

He said it is Umno’s policies that have been incorporated when formulating the government’s policies that have assured the country’s future for the future generation.

Najib said all policies were for the betterment of the people were initiated and implemented by the ruling government.

Najib said this at 1,400 students and guests at the closing ceremony of National Undergraduates Leadership Conference (Pemanas 2017) at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Dewan Agong Tuanku Canselor last night.

Also present were Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, Selangor Umno liaison committee chief Tan Sri Noh Omar, UiTM vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Hassan Said and Pemanas 5.0 director Mohd Shahar Abdullah.

“I hope you can bring out country further one day. We must not destroy what we have built for so long. It is the today’s generation that will ensure the continuity and the government will prepare the platform for you to bring the country to greater success.

“If there is no political stability, the country will destroy. If Umno and Barisan Nasional continue to stay in power, the country will achieve higher success.”

Najib also said political stability is crucial to run a country, a factor the opposition coalition lacks.

“We come across slanderous remarks on social media because this is the only tool for the opposition coalition to incite hatred against the government.

“They evidently will not be able to ensure political stability in our country. The country will destroy if we do not have political stability.

“Insya Allah, Umno and BN will continue to be in power, leading Malaysia to greater heights to ensure a brighter future for the future generations.”

Najib also called on the young leaders to come together in building the nation.

“We should not politicise issues to bring down or destroy the country. Look at what happened to Egypt, Syria, Iraq. Do not allow Malaysia to be in such situation.”

On a related note, Bernama reports Najib as saying that the government had adopted an “open attitude” towards youths, especially university students in efforts to develop the nation.

Najib said under his leadership, the federal government amended the University and University Colleges Act to give the younger generation the freedom to think and express their views even if they are critical.

“With the policy of directional planning by the Umno-led government, the younger generation especially undergraduates, are given ample opportunity to hold dialogues.”
