Abdi Rakyat

At the age of nearly 90 years, M. Noer never stopped to think and create. The main objective improving the welfare of the people through human resource education. Therefore, the goal of independence is to improve people's welfare, making grassroots biso minggo kemuyu or (small man can prosper).

Disaster after another. People scream on top of difficulties due to economic difficulties. This harsh reality reminds H. Mohammad Noer is titled Raden Panji on community poverty Madura in 1926. Long dry season in P. Madura takes place every year from July until October, scraping drought famine decades.

At that time, M. Noer is still sitting in class III, HIS, Sampang. The man who was born in Village Beler, Central Rong Village, a suburb of the town of Sampang, dated January 13, 1918, in a very young age (8 years), was stunned to see the procession of men and women berobor with heavy loads on shoulders and backs. They walk miles, through the dark night, heading south coast. The fact that it happened repeatedly, for him to be a mystery for five years.

One night, my curiosity M. Small Nur unstoppable again. In the dark night, he quietly stalking the convoy that stopped at the port of the Sampang's River. Under lighting torches snaking in the wind, they boarded the boat around in groups. Then a convoy of boats tossed the anchor, to develop the screen. The boats sailed further and further, until no longer visible. He harbored a mystery on their own, and want to find their own answers.

M. Noer find out five years later, after he was 13 years old. "Horsing poverty and the threat of starvation every dry season to encourage them to find a bite of rice on the land side." Exodus Madurese people at that time: from to Probolinggo Sampang or Pasuruan, from Bangkalan to Surabaya to Malang, from Pamekasan to Probolinggo, Jember and Lumajang, from Sumenep to Situbondo, Panarukan and Bondowoso, while the number of Madura, Central Kalimantan.

Childhood memories are embedded in the life of M. Noer. From here arises obsession for the prosperity of Madura. He wanted to explore the field of agriculture to improve the lot of Madurese people, whose land barren. (Mohammad Noer: Civil Serving Village).

M. Noer seventh son of 12 children and spouse Condropratikto Aria Raden Raden Ayu Siti Nursiah, both patrician Madura. M. Noer married Siti Mas Ayu Rachma, 1941. They had four daughters and four sons. Madura son was starting his career pangreh prajanya 1939, internship at the Office Sumenep, then graduated from MOSVIA Magelang. Since then up to become governor, M. Noer devoted himself as a civil service. He has been a member of the Assembly and the DPA. Year 1976-1980, M. Noer given the task became Ambassador in Prancsis.

Until old age, M. Noer never stopped to think and do to prosper, not just the people of Madura, but also the entire people of Indonesia. Therefore, the goal of independence is to improve people's welfare. As Chairman of the Regional Power, M. Noer, in an official forum in 1970, with a loud voice saying that the goal of independence: creating grassroots "minggo biso kemuyu or (small man can prosper).

M. Noer, from 1939 until 1980, became the man of the people. He has traveled the world, except Russia and South Africa, comparing other countries with Indonesia. The country is rich and large. On land, sea, it's all there. But, why are people poor? "This is what we do not really understand," said M. Noer in a speech welcoming party led Shaykh Al-Zaytun Panji Gumilang U.S., at Surabaya, Saturday (09/17/2005).

On that occasion, Shaykh M. Bannerman Gumilang lift Noer as a member of the Board of Curators University of Al-Zaytun which was inaugurated in August, 2005. M. Noer also a member of the Board of Curators various universities in Surabaya, such as Technology, ITS, Muhammadiyah, Bayangkara and UBN. Whereas high school level education only.

Although we consider the fact that very contradictory, M. Noer keep praying for the safety of the nation's leaders, both from the government or the community and the clergy so that they continue to do for the welfare of the people. This is his goal, starting from the village head in Sampang to become Governor of East Java and Indonesia's Ambassador in France. Served four years there, he worked hard to improve relations between Indonesia and France in order to improve the welfare of Indonesian people.

M. Noer was determined to get their knowledge, grateful and blessed with longevity health. "For longevity, but not healthy no meaning. The important thing is longevity, healthy and useful. For what? Yes, to family, community, nation and state," said M. Noer to

People Always Near
When appointed Governor of East Java (1967-1976), M. Noer during the 20 day stay in the villages, only 10 days his office, to see how the people. "I am orientated to the village because I was the man of the people," said M. Noer to Indonesian News.

He was always close to people because they want to know what they feel, and what deficiencies, needs, concerns and desires. Maybe they still have an illiterate, but not blind to the liver. M. Noer aware that as a governor or the head region of a career as a civil service, remains a man of the people.

He can not just govern from his office, but during the 20 day stay in the villages, traveling from one district to another. "I superiority poor villages," said M. Noer in a conversation with a reporter in Surabaya on Saturday (09/17/2005).

What he saw, were carried out with the correct mechanism through the ways of administration and bureaucracy. He told the officials in the neighborhood about the things that need to be implemented.

Whenever there was a report, he immediately did a check and ricek, whether the orders or instructions, executed or not, by the executor under. M. Noer has a special team that will do the checking. Therefore, he emphasizes honesty to his subordinates, not to deceive and ignore the interests of the people.

Village-Town Without Differences
When sitting in the chair of governors, M. Noer to perform his duties with an honest, earnest and disciplined. He even noticed the fence home every citizen. That way everybody knows its limits. Wisdom makes fence was done consequently. Citizens who are unable to be assisted. At that time, if people come to Jakarta, East Java, after entering the fenced Ngawi find a house, means he has signed in Java.

Said M. Noer, should prevent the development between rural and urban differences. Communities must be encouraged to participate equally, both in rural and urban building. if there until fourth grade elementary school but only have room three classes, then the community should be invited to participate to build an additional classroom, even for the procurement of teachers.

M. Noer proud of his province for the first time awarded Prasamya Karya Nugraha. This area is considered successful in promoting economic, not merely the result of the governor's accomplishments, but also its people.

He compared the state of reform since 1998. The leaders of mocking each other. Even more widespread corruption. Said M. Noer, at Surabaya, there are 30 members of parliament, there is obtained a lease instead of Rp 5 million per month per person. Then the money came from where, "not from people's taxes. Why do so. We must return to morals. "

"I will not have to say such and such. Ask God, let there be honesty in the leadership level to enhance the welfare of the people, "said M. Noer. It's a moral issue, and to improve it should be through prayer and for calling to bring the leaders.

Education always come first
M. Noer education always come first. When it became regent, he conducted programs Three-P. Education towards monotheism. Belief in God, and transportation. With education, people become literate in order to read and intelligent. If someone has faith in him is expected to net him. And communications mean that there is no more remote areas, so should be made of the road.

According to M. Noer who is now a member of the Board of Education, the educational responsibilities of the three elements; government, community and parents. Do not forever rely on the government. Communities and parents must participate.

He saw in Indonesia, education has been running good, expect it really became the capital in the future. Said, the internationally him there. M. Noer each came to the village always pay attention to education issues, listen to public complaints and the local government.

He gave an example at once expressed admiration at the Islamic educational institutions Ma'had Al-Shaykh led Zaytun Panji Gumilang U.S.. Al-Zaytun covers such a vast, ranging from education to the needs of food, everything is available there. "This should be an example. And they do not use state money, "said M. Noer.

M. Nur himself has a foundation of education, sent 30 kids on scholarship for two semesters of education in the Polytechnics (D-4) ITS. In the second semester, the scholarship of Rp 150 million. It is paid by the foundation's M. Noer, and the managers agree. After two and half received no response, either from the governor and the regents. But his friend from Bali to give assistance to one semester. And the governor will give help on semesetr fourth. "This means that people not only be a spectator Madura," said M. Noer.

M. Noer Indonesia does not want to rely on other parties. Therefore, human resources (HR) must be improved. Indonesia is very rich. Gas, oil and coal are exploited and treated by strangers. Said M. Noer, when their capacity has been enabled, then all of Indonesia's natural wealth dug and carried herself. Now, oil drilling done by people who paid $ 2,000 Filipino dollars a month. Said M. Noer, Indonesia should be able to educate and employ his own people.

Ideas Bridge Suramadu

In 1950, Patih (Vice Regent) Bangkalan, M. Noer sparked the idea Suramadu bridge construction. At that time, the idea was considered by many people very obsessive. He was very obsessed with Suramadu bridge construction. Background, when served Patih (Vice Regent) Bangkalan year 1950, there was cooperation between the Regents Bangkalan and Mayor of Surabaya. M. Noer became secretary. Then after taking office the governor, M. Noer be president. At that time, M. Noer had imagined would be the occurrence of congestion in Surabaya.

He got the idea to Kamal at the end of Bangkalan become satellite cities of Surabaya. But the relationship of Surabaya-Kamal was monopolized by PJKA. PJKA controlled sea transportation. From there Ujung Kamal bus and ferry services. It was the port of Ujung Kamal was only allowed to be used by the Navy from 6:00 until 18:00 o'clock.

As governor, M. Noer change the port, not on the Edge, but in Perak to be open 24 hours. PJKA monopoly-even removed, open to all carriers. But it was still not satisfactory. So he got the idea to build a bridge to connect Surabaya with Madura. He once stated that he would swim across the Strait of Madura if the bridge not being built.

Later, this idea was embodied by President Megawati Sukarnoputri by Presidential Decree No. 79 of 2003 on the Surabaya-Madura Bridge Construction. Megawati stick pile on August 20, 2003.
Along the 5.4 kilometer bridge was inaugurated by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, June 10, 2009.

Previously, M. Noer to talk about development plans of Surabaya-Madura bridge, which had Say wore to the Governor of East Java and the Regents. He saw there were two questions. (1) Executing the construction work should be tendered internationally and open. Consultants must know the technical and financial problems. (2) If Suramadu bridge is completed, the highway will be constrained. In Madura, there will be industrial park and airport, of course, requires trained personnel.

M. Want to see the wealth of Indonesia Noer counterbalanced by the HR-capable, through education. Thus, natural resources (SDA) is not exploited by foreigners, but by his own power. He wants development relies not only on land, but the sea also shall take precedence. How many tons of fish, and how many trillions of rupiah others dredged from the sea of Indonesia. "Anyway, our country's rich," said M. Noer in a tone that was always optimistic.
