"Looking at the character of Datuk Seri Najib, I find that he is very detailed on matters that are basic for the people ... understanding this I can predict that Datuk Seri Najib will add matters that can assist in improving the prosperity of the people.

"I dare to make this projection and prediction because I study the style and administration of the prime minister," he told reporters after becoming a panelist on the programme 'Dialog Perjuangan 4 All', here last night.

Members of the panel also included Umno Supreme Council member cum Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dasuki.
