KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 3 (Bernama) — Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today that the 2011 Umno General Assembly had succeeded in providing a new inspiration for the complete revival of the party after the 2008 General Election.
Najib said the assembly this year was both historic and successful because it has not only inspired the revival of the party but created an awareness to face the challenges that lie ahead.
“Armed with unity, commitment and confidence, GOD willing, we can face and overcome any challenge,” he told reporters after his fiery closing speech at the Putra World Trade Centre here Saturday.
“The assembly, based on my assessment (I may be bias), I feel this assembly is the most successful and a historic one because it has triggered the start of Umno’s complete revival after the past election,” said Najib.
On comments that his speech when opening the assembly was not fiery enough compared with today’s closing speech, Najib said he had saved his best for the last, in order to inspire the delegates during the closing.
“I want to stress that Umno’s concept must be understood. When we look at history, Umno has contributed immensely to the country and the Malays,” he said.
