SHAH ALAM, 22 Sept: Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim’s aura as the Chief Minister of Selangor has profoundly left a deep impact on civil servants.
Most civil servants who were met expressed sadness about Abdul Khalid leaving the position as the chief executive leader of the richest state in Malaysia.
Customer Service Officer Sri Wiyanti Sugito, 28, said that Abdul Khalid is a leader who is concerned for the welfare of the people and also civil servants.
“In addition to giving us the annual bonus, he was also concerned about our welfare including the latest where he provided transportation for employees from the quarters to the work place.
“If it was up to us, we, civil servants, do not agree to him stepping down from the position he holds now.
“No matter what, I pray for his continuous success in the future,” she told Selangor Kini.
Earlier, Abdul Khalid arrived at the Selangor State Government Secretariat (SUK) Building at exactly 9 am, accompanied by the Executive Councillor in charge of Education, Higher Learning and Human Capital Development, Dr Halimah Ali.
It was reported that today is Abdul Khalid’s last day as the Chief Minister after he first took up the position in 2008.
Meanwhile, another civil servant, Rahmat Muslimin, 51, said that Abdul Khalid’s departure is a great loss to the state of Selangor.
“He is a leader who really worked for the people and vigorously developed the state.
“I do not believe any allegations against his integrity, they are absolutely not true,” stressed the Security Officer.
