UMT alumni hand over memorandum on UMT-UniSZA merger to Terengganu MB

Last Update: 02/10/2019

KUALA TERENGGANU, Oct 2 -- The Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) Alumni Association has submitted a memorandum to Menteri Besar Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, to appeal to the federal government against the proposed merger of the varsity and Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA).

The Education Ministry had decided on the merger of both varsities in the state, aimed at strengthening their capacities in line with the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education).

Association president Khairul Hakimi Mohd Nawi said as a stake holder indirectly involved in the merger, the state government must know better and understand that the move would not have a positive impact on the people of the state.

"In our opinion this proposal is risky, not profitable for the state of Terengganu and was done in haste.

"So, we urge the Menteri Besar, who has the highest executive power in the state to appeal to the Education Ministry or higher authorities such as the Prime Minister, to reconsider the decision," he told Bernama when met at Wisma Darul Iman today.

The association has over 30,000 members.
