‘The generous royal gesture reflects His Majesty the Sultan’s keenness to enhance the ability of students in the field of information and communications technology and help them keep abreast of modern online education,’ the statement said.
‘May Almighty Allah protect His Majesty the Sultan and guard him as a source of inspiration for this dear homeland and those who reside in it. May He eternalise the bounty of prosperity under His Majesty the Sultan’s wise leadership,’ the statement added.
