Abdullah Salleh A Great Man, Says PM

BANGI, Feb 13 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Tuesday paid tribute to the late Tun Abdullah Salleh, describing him as a very special person who contributed immensely to the civil service and also Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

He said, Abdullah, who was also affectionately known as Pak Lah, was a very humble person but firm in his decisions.

"He was a gentle man and gentleman. Admired by all when he was in the Diplomatic and Administrative Service (PTD)," the Prime Minister said when simultaneously launching UKM's Islam Hadhari (Civilisational Islam) Institute, the institute's Syeikh Abdullah Fahim chair,a biography on Tun Abdullah Salleh and the Tun Abdullah Salleh Complex at the university, here.

The late Abdullah, who served under four prime ministers while in the civil service, later went on to become Petronas' first executive chairman.

The Prime Minister also said UKM owed a lot to Abdullah, who was its first registrar when the university was established in 1970, as he played an instrumental role in carrying out the government's policy of making Bahasa Malaysia the main medium of instruction in public institutions of higher learning.

He added that the biography, titled "Dari ADO ke CEO" (From Assistant District Officer to CEO), should serve as in inspiration to others in their quest for excellence.

Abdullah Salleh died on June 22, 2006 of cancer at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM).
