MANDUT: YOUNG LEADERS CAN WORK WONDERS IF GIVEN OPPORTUNITY
KOTA MARUDU, Feb 11, 2018:
A call by Barisan Nasional Youth Chief Yamani Hafez Musa for more young leaders fielded in the coming 14th General Election received the thumbs up from the Parti Bersatu Sabah youth wing.
Strongly supporting Yamani Hafez’s proposal, acting Parti Bersatu Sabah Youth Chief Christopher Mandut noted that many young highly qualified Sabahans are all ready to serve the people, and nation as a whole.
Describing it as a great idea, Mandut said most young leaders had learned leadership theories from their political superiors, and it was time to do the practicals.
“The best life lesson is to be on the field. If the young are given the opportunity to show what they can do, I am sure they can do wonders.
“Of course, such lessons would be more effective with the guidance from the seniors, who have been in the trade long,” said Mandut during the PBS Chinese New Year walkabout, here, today.
Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister cum Kota Marudu Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili led the walkabout, along with other party leaders.
He further stressed that through partnership between young and experienced leaders in the government, it would allow effective sharing of knowledge and experiences, thus promoting successful leadership succession plan.
Mandut noted that the young had also worked equally hard with their senior colleagues in the party, adding it was time that these new blood be given the opportunity to show their worth as a candidate.
“Under the leadership of young leaders like Yamani Hafez, who have shown his charisma, capabilities and abilities to lead, I believe youths will be well guided and rest assured their voices are heard,” he said.
