09 Apr 2020 / 11:39 H.

PETALING JAYA: Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Noraini Ahmad (pix) has been receiving criticisms from netizens over her decision to hold a TikTok competition from April 8 to 14.

It is unsure when the Tweet was posted because Noraini has since put her Twitter account as private. OhBulan! however reported that her tweet concerning the competition was also deleted, but screenshots of the poster are available. Based on the poster, the 7-day competition has the following requirements:

>> Competitors must be aged between 18 to 26 years old

>> Don’t touch sensitive, religious, race, and national matters

>> Video content must be able to be viewed by all layers of society and ages

>> Must tag 3 friends with the following hashtags: #staysafe, #kitamestimenang #kesanakesini

Netizens, however, were not too impressed with the decision to hold the competition. One Twitter user said, “I don’t understand what this TikTok competition has to do with her role as Higher Education Minister.”

Other Twitter users also advised the minister to focus on e-learning programmes and the welfare of students currently stuck on campus.
