KUALA LUMPUR: For his great statesmanship and dedication towards the country, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is a legend in his own league, says Malaysia’s No. 1 singer, Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin.
“The return of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to serve as prime minister for the second time, and at his age of 92, is also something which is unheard before anywhere else,” said the singer when met after the launch of her Creacion & Simplysiti by Siti Nurhaliza boutique in Melawati Mall here today.
Siti, 39, said that she had always viewed him as a legendary figure.
Dr Mahathir was previously the fourth prime minister who had served for 22 years before he decided to call it a day in 2003.
“Whatever I had shared earlier on social media regarding him was a show of admiration for what he had done during his previous tenure as prime minister. It was never a secret,” said Siti.
“The change in the ruling party which had been in power since the nation’s independence should be a lesson for leaders not to be complacent, but to work hard for the country and its people.”
Siti also felt honoured to have her Instagram to be one of the seven accounts followed by Malaysia’s seventh Prime Minister.
