Musa calls on Sabahans to back Najib as PM
SANDAKAN, Sept 2 — Sabah Umno Liaison Committee chairman and Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has given four reasons why the people of Sabah should continue to support Datuk Seri Najib Razak as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
He said the four reasons were much needed for the prosperity of Sabahans despite the tremendous progress currently under his leadership.
“Why do we need to retain Barisan Nasional (BN)? Why must Datuk Seri Najib Razak continue as Prime Minister? The answer is simple. Because we want development, prosperity, peace and harmony,” he said.
Musa (picture) said this in his speech at the Umno Libaran, Kinabatangan, Sandakan, Batu Sapi and Beluran Divisions’ delegates meetings that were opened simultaneously by Najib, who is also Umno president here, today.
On the other hand, he feared that Sabah and its people would suffer a setback if they picked the wrong party and leader to form the government after the coming general election.
Nevertheless, Musa said the people of Sabah were not easily influenced by the opposition which feigned blindness and refused to admit the prolific development in Sabah under BN.
He said the people had enjoyed and benefited from numerous initiatives implemented under Najib such as the Government Transformation Programme (GTP).
“He has helped fishermen, farmers and paddy planters. He has also helped the people in the villages, in towns, children, elderly, pensioners and even taxi drivers,” he said.
According to Musa, the state government had through its own initiatives introduced programmes to boost the economy and standard of living of the people.
He said the sejahtera mini-estate projects, handicraft centres, business and entrepreneurship programmes and providing basic infrastructure were part of the initiatives to develop the people of Sabah. — Bernama
