He mentioned Malaysia, which is now moving forward in line with the industrial revolution (IR 4.0), will have an effect of manpower shortage in certain work field.
“I urge students to open your minds by preparing yourselves with various skills and sharpening your talents with added value and expertise in order to compete in the IR4.0 era to stay relevant in the modern age,” he said.

“Therefore, it is the hope of Negeri Sembilan Government that all students acquire knowledge to your best ability, to carry both Malaysia and Islam to greater heights of recognition. My advice is that students should always be prepared to accept the tasks and trusts to preserve and develop the nation which is Allah’s greatest gift to us”.
He also stated that in producing quality graduates, USIM should always be committed in providing students with the space and opportunity to enhance their abilities thus producing students with high calibre leadership qualities.
