Najib: Daughter's marriage meaningful to me

KUALA LUMPUR - Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the marriage solemnisation ceremony of his daughter, Nooryana Najwa, with Daniyar Kessikbayev, which he conducted personally on Thursday, meant a lot to him as a father.

"In a short while, I will marry Gina (Nooryana Najwa's nickname) off myself. God willing, everything will go smoothly," the prime minister said in his latest posting on Twitter and Facebook on Thursday.

In an earlier posting, Najib prayed that his daughter's wedding with Daniyar would be blessed by Allah.

"The happy moments my daughter Gina had waited for will happen tonight. As a father, I pray that Gina becomes a faithful wife," he said.

He also hoped that his daughter would always be happy with her husband.
