Mustapha’s professional beginnings could be described as unique. He worked in Pekan for almost 3 years. Going through Pekan’s flood disasters yearly gave him a sober dose of reality. It was also a very developmental experience for him as it gave him the drive to want better for himself. “At that time, I was the Assistant District Officer (ADO) and was still on my 3-year probation,” says Mustapha. “It took me a while to realise that the routine work in government service was not something I idealised for a long-term career. And neither was crisis management given the constant floods.” Learning this, Mustapha set on forging a new career path which came in an opportunity to work with the knowledge-based organisation like MPC. It was not a difficult choice for Mustapha and he confidently resigned from his role as ADO and embarked on a new adventure with MPC.
