The deputy chief minister says the people must reject the opposition and their empty words.
TAMBUNAN: Deputy Chief Minister Joseph Pairin Kitingan expressed his confidence in Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s leadership through government transformation programmes, which emphasised the people’s needs especially those living in remote areas, as it showed an understanding for the people of Sabah.
“As a young and energetic leader, he (Najib) has brought about changes and progress in a short time to all areas regardless of its location.
“We must support these efforts as transformation programmes will bring benefits, development and improve the lives of people in the state,” he said at a Leader With The People ceremony and presentation of contributions in Kampung Nambayan, near here.
Pairin, who is also State Infrastructure Development Minister, said a good relationship between the federal and state government was also positive for Sabah residents.
“So there is no reason for us not to support a leader who brings changes and focuses on the welfare of the people,” he added.
Therefore, Pairin who is also Tambunan assemblyman, invited the people of Sabah, especially the Kadazandusun Murut community, to help maintain the BN government which has proven its ability to defend the people.
He also touched on the issue of forming a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the influx of illegal immigrants in Sabah, saying it has been approved by the central government and only waiting for implementation as it involved provision of terms such as legal aspects.
“Our confidence in the BN leadership will increase when the RCI is implemented,” he said.
Pairin also urged the people to reject the opposition and their empty words.
“They (opposition) are generous in their words and promises when election is approaching…but they fail to keep them. This also goes for the Tambunan Declaration which was an empty promise and not even signed by opposition leaders,” he said, adding that BN has already proven its capability in fighting for the people.
