PETALING JAYA: Sabah Barisan Nasional chairman Musa Aman has called on the party to make “onsoi” its rallying cry for the upcoming polls.
He said the word reflected the spirit of the people in the interior and should be used by BN members to win back the people’s mandate.
He believed the word, which means “all is good” in Murut, will help ensure victory for BN in the 14th general election (GE14), which will be held on May 9.
“Even Prime Minister Najib Razak now knows the essence of the word ‘onsoi’ and what it means for the people in the interiors in Sabah.
“It is now getting more popular among the people in Peninsular Malaysia,” Musa said after a meeting with the Pensiangan Umno committee members, led by Abdul Ghani Yassin, in Keningau today.
He also appealed to BN members to cooperate with each other and set aside their differences.
“The coalition adheres to a policy where it does not condone having enemies from within or thorns in the flesh.
“All BN members are part of one big family that now has one target, which is to win GE14. Any form of action taken by members should bear in mind the spirit of unity needed to win this polls,” he said.
Musa later met Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) president Joseph Kurup and Ellron Alfred Angin, also from PBRS, urging both to work out their differences and continue cooperating with each other to defend the party’s seats — Pensiangan (parliamentary) and Sook (state).
Musa also got to meet the Keningau Umno division committee members, led by Liawan incumbent Sairin Karno.
According to Sairin, all members and leaders in Keningau back Musa to return as Sabah chief minister if BN retains the state.
