Roisah Abdullah, a 21-year-old STPM top scorer who was born in Klang but was unable to obtain citizenship, is seeking a meeting with Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on Wednesday. Lawyer N. Surendran claims the ministry has agreed to approve her application for citizenship on the same day. Meanwhile, the Higher Education Ministry has offered to help Roisah with her enrollment to Universiti Utara Malaysia.
