He said Sulaiman was not a new player in the industry, as he was formerly a member of the Felda Board of Directors, and was highly knowledgeable and experienced about Felda matters.

Shahrir said this to reporters after attending the Ihy Rahmat Ramadhan event at the Felda Tenang Mosque in Segamat here today.
