SHAH ALAM - Datuk Mohd Nazifuddin Najib says he wants to continue former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak's legacy and bring back the stability his dad had managed to establish during his tenure.

In an exclusive interview with Sinar Harian, Mohd Nazifuddin said Najib wants him to continue his fight for the people.

"I just want to continue a good legacy, and his programs and policies which helped the people tremendously as I believe these policies are the best for Malaysia," he said.

"If possible, I want to bring back the stability and prosperity that he (Najib) brought during the eight years when he was the prime minister, there were many successes and changes as a result of his service," he added.

Mohd Nazifuddin added that although he could not help his father much now in terms of the court cases against him, he would like to help and continue Najib's legacy in politics.

He said he is ready to contest for the Umno deputy youth chief position in the upcoming Umno elections.

"This is what I can do so people still remember him and many in Umno still love him," he said.

He also stated that his grandfather, Tun Razak and his father have set the bar high in politics.

"For me and my brother, maybe we want to do things differently from what they have contributed," he said.

He said he still visits Najib in prison sometimes and in his most recent visit last Friday, Najib looked skinny yet cheerful.

"We as family members are a support system for him. We cannot interfere with this issue but we always visit him, sometimes he wants to know what's going on inside Umno.

"If he knew Umno is more progressive and has improved, it is a gift for him. Every time I go see him, he told me he is worried but I try my best to help continue the fight," Mohd Nazifuddin said.

Commenting on his father's Bossku legacy, he said that the phenomenon is a thing which comes naturally.

"I see this as his greatness as a leader. Though many accusations were thrown, he can come out to the people and be Bossku.

"It's extraordinary and no one can do it like him. No matter after how many court cases, he will still be Bossku," he said.
