KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today called on all Malaysians to spend as much time as possible with their families while they are still alive. He said although they might not see each other face to face, there were telephones and social media applications, such as WhatsApp and Skype, that could be used to stay connected.
He said the fact is, at the end of their daily lives, none of them wants to spend even a little more of their time in the office. He said, instead, they all want to spend every minute with our families. He said this in his latest entry on family ties in his blog, www.najibrazak.com today.
Najib also admitted that he himself hardly got the chance to be with his family due to his tight schedule, especially with various visits, community events, meetings, project launch and the recently concluded Sarawak election. He said if possible, he would love to spend more time with their children, their wife and their family, but as the prime minister, the people are also part of their big family who deserve my attention.
“The welfare and wellbeing of elderly parents should also be taken care of by the children no matter how busy they were. I’m very lucky because my mother is still alive and healthy. Alhamdulillah (All praise be to Allah). My children are all grown up and lively. My family are happy,” Najib added.
