Lalong said “the late Emir lived a very productive life and represented the virtues of truth, service and honesty in his 45 years on the throne. His leadership and goodwill attracted enormous development to the Emirate and also improved the living standards of his people.

He connected easily with people from all parts of the country and offered wise counsel to Governments at all levels. He will surely be missed”.
