“Armada need to focus on the effort to strengthen and develop the economy of the people, especially the youth, instead of the irrelevant issues.

“We want the Armada in Sabah, apart from assisting in boosting the party struggles, at the same time become a platform for assisting and guiding the young people in the aspects of economy and entrepreneurship,” he said.

Hajiji said this at the closing of Seminar Armada Harapan Negara held at Linangkit Cultural Village hall in Kg Tutu, Selupoh, here on Sunday.

The day-long seminar, the first held in Sabah, was organised by Tuaran Armada and participated by 350 of its leaders and members.

Sabah Bersatu Armada Chief, Mohd Isquzawan Israq Arsit, Tuaran Bersatu Division Deputy Chief, Abdul Kassim Razali, Tuaran BERSATU Armada Chief, Mohd Ghazali Hajiji and other division leaders were also present.

Hajiji, who is also Sulaman State Assemblyman, stressed that the community wanted changes, thus the Armada need to do its duties and responsibilities the best possible to help change the future of the young people.

“The economic aspect of the young people need to be strengthened and boosted because the future of the country depends on them.

“We need to forget issues that do not bring benefits like racial and religious. Such issues are not relevant in Sabah,” he stressed.

He said one of the challenges faced by the Armada was to attract participation and support from young people particularly the 18-year-olds who will automatically be registered as a voter.

Meanwhile, when met by reporters, Hajiji said Bersatu as a Pakatan Harapan (PH) component party will give cooperation to the State Government which is led by Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) by focussing on developing plans that benefits the people of Sabah.

In conjunction with the event, Hajiji also received 910 membership application forms from youths in Tuaran, Tamparuli and Kiulu, which were presented by Mohd Ghazali.-SabahNewsToday
