Raub – “I lost a teacher, as well as a respected religious and political figure with the passing of former Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat,” said Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
He said despite their political indifference, there were views forwarded by Nik Abdul Aziz which he respected.
“When attending the meeting of the Conference of Rulers, I would pour him his drink and carry his files.
“He always told this to others and regard me as a person who respects the elders,” he told reporters after handing over land titles to 179 Felda Krau 1 settlers here today.
Adnan said he regarded Nik Abdul Aziz as a colourful political figure and a sincere and honest leader.
On behalf of the state government, he expressed his condolences to Nik Abdul Aziz’s family.
Nik Abdul Aziz died at his home in Pulau Melaka at 9.40pm two days ago. – Bernama
