PETALING JAYA: The success of a student who scored good marks in his STPM exams in Ayer Hitam, Johor was praised by Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
“This young man told me that he got an opportunity to pursue his studies at Universiti Malaya (UM) majoring in Social Management. I am very proud of him; he told me that he achieved a CGPA of 3.92 during his STPM examinations,” said the Ayer Hitam MP.
He added in a Facebook post on Saturday (Oct 9) that he met the student while distributing basic necessities to those in need in his constituency.
“I am confident and pray that this young man will succeed one day and be able to help and make his single mother proud, as well as his other five siblings,” said Dr Wee.
In a separate statement, he said that he also distributed food baskets, facemasks and hand sanitisers to p-hailing riders in Ayer Hitam and Yong Peng, Johor.
“At the same time, I reminded them to remain vigilant on the road and be careful for their own and other road user’s safety,” said Dr Wee.
The Transport Minister also said that most of the p-hailing riders are young people who were forced to join the industry when they were laid off due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
He added that there are 24 Foodpanda p-hailing riders in Yong Peng while a total of 31 p-riders were identified in Ayer Hitam.
