Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said was in a jubilant mood Friday stressing that the Mercedes-Benz saga ended after the meeting with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Thursday, indicating that he had received the PM’s blessings to use the German-made vehicles as official cars.
Ahmad also met with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the same venue. “Yes, we (Abdullah and Najib) reached a consensus on the matter during the meeting at Putra World Trade Centre (on Thursday). The matter has been solved. I can’t elaborate further,” he said Friday after opening the Seri Kandi’s Annual General Meeting at his official residence here.
