WEDNESDAY, 30 MARCH – The Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Professor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah reminded the campus community to always practice integrity in their daily affairs.
Speaking during his 2016 message at Dewan Canselor (Chancellor Hall) today, Professor Datuk Harun stressed that corruption should be shunned and eliminated altogether among the campus community.
“If we were caught in corruption, what ever position you hold, it would destroy the image of this beloved university,” he said.
He added that although working as civil employees and wage earners would not make one enjoy a luxurious life, but we should uphold our dignity, self-respect and principle on the basis of religious beliefs.
“Don’t be hoodwinked with the lure of money, nor ensnared with wealth, what is important is our sincerity to work with integrity that bring us to everlasting wealth.
“Only with sincerity can we be united, be one in mind, to accomplish the purpose of this university in order to always move forward and progress ahead,” he urged.
About 3,000 campus community that included staff and students attended the event themed ‘UMS Moving Forward in Unity’. – ZMD (fl)
