President Tony Tan to visit Brunei to unite S’poreans

Posted on 27 May 2013

Everything he does is to unite Singaporeans.


President Tony Tan will be visiting Brunei on Tuesday for three days, his first state visit there since becoming president in 2011.

This visit is significant as Tony Tan campaigned during the presidential election two years ago saying that he will be a figurehead who will unite Singaporeans if he wins.

Singaporeans from all walks of life agree.

Lai Tuan Jie, a young Singaporean who spoiled his vote during the presidential election said: “Yes, there is no doubt Tony Tan will unite Singaporeans when he goes to Brunei and does some important things like talk and walk around.”

“We will all hold hands for those three days and be inspired.”

The Foreign Affairs Ministry has said Dr Tan will receive a ceremonial welcome at Istana Nurul Iman, the Sultan’s official residence.

He will then have a meeting with the Sultan, and be hosted to a state banquet in the evening.

And then he will fly back.

Another Singaporean, Yi Qi Lai, said: “When Tony Tan comes back to Singapore, we will be united as one big country.”

“We will all hold hands and feel so unity.”
