Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak became a hot talk of the town this week after he shared a photo of him with Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris ibni Sultan Ibrahim, on his official Facebook.
In his post, the former Prime Minister revealed that he had called on the Johor Crown Prince and also his wife, Che’ Puan Khaleeda Bustamam, yesterday (Monday, 14th February), as part of his visit there ahead of the 2022 Johor state election which is set to be held next month.
It was reported that Najib had met TMJ to discuss the state’s development and further potential if it is led by his political party, Barisan Nasional (BN), as per news outlet MalayMail. “Johor has a huge potential and can be the gateway for the country’s economic progress. Investments, employments and developments should be the three main focuses,” the political figure shared in his post.
In his next posting, Najib also showed several photos of him around the streets in Johor Bahru. According to him, “Exchanging views and opinions regarding the economic situation in Johor. Many revealed that the state has great development opportunities.”
“We have a professional and experienced human capital.
