KANGAR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday by criss-crossing Perlis but his sacrifice did not go unnoticed.
Everywhere he went, the Prime Minister was greeted by well-wishers and at all the programmes he attended, there were birthday songs and cakes waiting.
At the meet-the-people session in Dewan Wawasan 2020, people in the packed hall sang the birthday song to Najib while he cut a birthday cake.
At the closed-door Perlis Barisan Nasional meeting, a cake was also presented to the Prime Minister.
At a programme where he presented financial aid to Chinese and Tamil schools in Perlis, birthday songs in Malay, Mandarin, Tamil and English were sung.
Najib said although it was his birthday, he considered it just a “normal day”.
That’s why he decided to be with the people of Perlis.
“Whether it is my birthday or not, I want to show that I am doing my utmost for the rakyat,” he said.
Asked what was his birthday wish, the Prime Minister hoped for Malaysia to continue being a peaceful nation.
“I also wish that our plans for Malaysia will be successful. That is my birthday wish,” he said, smiling.
