Semporna UMNO Still Intact - Nasir Sakaran

SEMPORNA, Aug 5 (Bernama) --The Semporna UMNO division is still strong with 459 branches pledging their undivided loyal to the party, said the division's acting chief Datuk Seri Nasir Sakaran.

He said the Semporna UMNO division had since overcome a crisis when 350 branches purportedly left UMNO but its loyal members had continued to serve and stay with the people.

"Despite the adversities, Semporna UMNO has managed to retain the spirit of loyalty and unity among its members and branches.

"The efforts to empower Semporna UMNO did not stop and in fact all members played their roles by visiting every village to explain to the people the party's struggle and now Semporna UMNO is back and remains relevant.

Nasir, who is Senallang assemblyman, was speaking during the Semporna UMNO division's delegates conference here today. The conference was opened by UMNO Supreme Council member and Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.
