“Come the election, we have no option but to support Datuk Seri Najib and we want him to continue to be the prime minister,” he said at the opening ceremony for the 14th PBB Convention.

Abang Johari said PBB would go all-out to deliver a clean-sweep result in the coming parliamentary election.

“We are aware that someone wants to be the next prime minister despite being at the age of 93. But don’t you worry, Datuk Seri Najib, we are fully behind you.

“And hopefully, we will give you a good report card,” he added.
