KUCHING: A PBB supreme council member Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah says Datin Patinggi Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu is the perfect candidate for Tanjong Datu.
Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman, said Jamilah was the pillar behind the late Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem and she herself was very passionate and committed in whatever task she did.
“Therefore, playing the role of an elected representative, in the event she wins (in the coming by-election) will fit her well,” he said in a press statement received here yesterday.
According to Abdul Karim, Jamilah had been involved in community and charitable works ever since Adenan was the elected the people’s representative of Muara Tuang way back in the late 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
“She continued that (her works) in Tanjong Datu when Tok Nan moved there and I don’t think anybody in Tanjong Datu doesn’t know or not recognises her,” he said.
Besides describing Jamilah as a good organiser, very down-to-earth and humble, Abdul Karim said she was a person who had pleasant character and one with the heart for the people.
Abdul Karim also said Jamilah knew Adenan’s vision for Tanjong Datu and could follow through whatever her husband had left behind.
Jamilah candidacy for Tanjong Datu was confirmed by Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg yesterday. -The Borneo Post
