KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Barisan Nasional chairman Musa Aman has reminded the people that the word “change” was often used by frustrated people.
“Changing the state government does not necessarily mean that the new government will be able to bring about the changes that the people desire.
“The states in the peninsula which are under federal opposition parties are still lacking in many ways,” he said, referring to Selangor and Penang, which are under Pakatan Harapan, and Kelantan, which is under PAS.
The people should judge the intention of the opposition and not fall for promises that may never be fulfilled.
“Compared with the opposition, the current government has a proven track record and have been able to fulfil its promises and also brought about much development for the good of the people,” Musa said.
He also addressed young voters, telling them to be wary of lies that have been said about the BN government.
“The youth’s aspiration will continue to be the BN’s main priority and we value their opinions for the sake of the country’s development,” he said.
Earlier at the opening of the 1km Army Camp bypass road at Mile 7 in Sandakan, Musa, who is Sabah chief minister, announced that all People’s Housing Project (PPR) tenants in the state will be offered the Rent-to-Own scheme.
The application for the offer, he said was forwarded to the prime minister and the urban wellbeing, housing and local government ministry earlier and he was informed by state secretary Sukarti Wakiman that the application has been approved.
“I know this would provide relief to current PPR tenants because prior to this, they can only rent without any possibility of owning a house. The time has come for the PPR tenants who have been hoping for this to be given the proper attention,” he said.
