Another member of UMNO Supreme Council resigns from the PTPTN board

Datuk Rosni Sohar, an Umno supreme council member, has resigned from the board of the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN).

Rosni stated her resignation was because of Datuk Seri Noraini Ahmad’s resignation as well as UMNO’s decision on August 3 to withdraw its support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“First and foremost, I would like to express my thanks and sincere gratitude to former higher education minister Datuk Seri Noraini Ahmad for providing me with the chance to serve on the PTPTN management board.

“Even so, in accordance with Datuk Seri Noraini’s choice to quit as higher education minister and in accordance with what the UMNO Supreme Council agreed on August 3, 2021, I as a member of the UMNO Supreme Council would also dutifully uphold the party’s decision.

“As a result, I hereby resign as a member of the PTPTN management board, starting August 7, 2021,” Rosni stated in a statement posted on her Facebook page.
