I will miss Abang Khalid dearly. He was a man with a big heart. He was always there to guide, help and always put me first. He was my deputy chief in PBB Samariang Division since I first stood in the election in 2006. He was instrumental in my success in all my elections.

Abang Khalid was also the person that I fully trusted in taking care of my area. A dear friend of my parents and someone I looked up. May Allah place him amongst the righteous.

Our state has lost another good leader. He was a friendly, cheerful, and generous person. When he was PEKEMA president, he always helped the needy through his corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes. May his soul rest in peace.
