STATEMENT BY SECRETARY-GENERAL YB DATUK SERI HAJI AHMAD MASLAN IN CONJUNCTION WITH UMNO 74th ANNIVERSARY
UMNO will celebrate its 74th anniversary on May 11, 2020 (Monday) which also falls on 18th of Ramadan 1441 Hijrah. This year celebration will be moderate, taking heed of the Movement Control Order (MCO).
In conjunction with its anniversary, all members are advised to recite the Yassin and prayers at home to seek blessing from God The Almighty to protect UMNO and its members from any mishaps and distasteful events.
The recital of Yassin can be carried out after breaking fast on May 10. I would like to remind members that the evening of May 10 is also the Nuzul Quran day.
The President Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi will have a ‘live’ session with 13 State Liaison Chiefs and three representatives of UMNO’s oversea clubs on May 11 via a video conferencing on Webex application from 10.00AM onwards.
Our President will also announce the UMNO Award Day to our frontliners fighting Covid-19 pandemic as a symbolic gesture for their commitment and contribution in protecting the people and the nation. The plaques and certificates of appreciation will be given on a date to be finalised soon.
All members are also advised to fly the party’s flag at their respective home before May 11 as a gratitude momento towards UMNO’s struggle and contribution to the people and nation since the last 74 years.
Let’s make the 74th UMNO anniversary which is coincidental with the holy month of Ramadan as a mean to fortify effort and determination for our struggle towards enhancing the dignity and future of the party and the people.
