KOTA KINABALU: Prime Minister Najib Razak today said Barisan Nasional (BN) had never gone back on its word, unlike the opposition whom he said had failed to fulfil its manifesto and made the states governed by it worse than before.
Speaking at the opening of a school in Batu Sapi, Sandakan, today, Najib said BN had managed to fulfil 99.4% of the promises made in the last election.
“On the other hand, the Penang government said it would reduce the water tariff but the opposite happened. They said they would build a tunnel, but to this day, there is no tunnel connecting the island and the mainland.
“In Selangor, they constantly have water problems, the highest number of dengue cases and trash problems. The PKR government in Selangor has failed.
“So imagine, what can a Parti Warisan Sabah or a DAP government give to the people? Nothing,” he said.
Najib, who is also the BN chairman, said the government was not satisfied with what it had done so far and planned to do a lot more for the people.
He said given the many schools in Sabah which were in dilapidated condition, he had decided to allocate RM3 billion to repair the buildings.
In Sandakan alone, he said, three schools would benefit from the programme with more expected to follow suit.
Najib said he had done more for Sabah in his nine years in power than former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad had throughout his 22-year reign.
“Did that person do anything comparable to what this government has done? I approved the construction of Pan-Borneo Highway.
“In five years’ time, you will see the changing face of Sabah. BN fulfils its promises, it does not simply make promises like the opposition.
“I will continue to support Sabah’s development plan and when you vote for BN, I say ‘magsukul’,” he added, referring to the Suluk word for thank you.
Najib, who was on his third visit to Batu Sapi, also promised to build more people’s housing projects in the federal constituency.
Also present were Chief Minister Musa Aman, Batu Sapi incumbent Linda Tsen and Sekong incumbent Samsudin Yahya.
