Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Umno has pledged full support to party President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who has promised to make changes in the Umno structure and the country's leadership in general. Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman on Sunday also expressed Sabah's loyalty to the party leadership and vowed to render full cooperation.
"We are happy with the firm support from the State Umno and the people of Sabah to the leadership led by Najib," he told reporters upon his return here from campaigning for Barisan Nasional (BN) in the Bukit Gantang by-election in Perak. Also present was Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.
Musa, who is also Sabah Umno Liaison Chief, said former party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had requested party members to continue to strengthen the party.
"He also advised that it is very important we continue to work hard and ensure Umno remains relevant and accepted by the people in general," he said.
On the defeat of Menteris Besar (MBs) in the Umno elections, Musa said in many cases, as chief executive of the state, the MBs may be too busy with their tight schedules that they did not have time to meet with the delegates and divisional chiefs.
He said most of the delegates feel MBs and Chief Ministers should not contest in the election for Supreme Council seats as traditionally they would be appointed into the Supreme Council.
In the past, he said there were Menteris Besar who did not contest for any post but were appointed as Supreme Council members.
Nevertheless, Musa said those who won were due to their diligence in going down to the grassroots and meeting with divisional chiefs and delegates. "Direct contact (with the division chiefs and delegates) has enabled them to win," he said.
Memanglah tepat seperti apa yang Ketua Menteri cakap tu.... we always support the federal govt... BUT, ARE THEY APPRECIATING IT??? Yalah.... kerana kita sokong dan bantu mereka, kita cuma kena bagi/lantik jadi Timbalan Menteri seumur hidup, dapat juga Full Minister, tapi yang jaga bangunan usang, jaga langit bocor.....!!! Ada YB dari Sabah yang `dari kenaikan sampai keturunan, tiada kedudukan'(dari naik bas, sampai waktu turun bas, tiada dapat tempat duduk, tapi bayar tambang sama rata)... asyik-asyik kena lantik jadi Timbalan Menteri saja..(Yb. Datuk Anifah Aman).. sampai beliau MALAS nak terima perlantikkan tersebut...begitu juga dengan Datuk Seri Panglima Ghapur Salleh...!!
KENAPA SAMPAI BEGINI.... yang tiada bertanding pula dapat jawatan FULL MINISTER, KEMENTERIAN yang penting-penting, yang dari SABAH cuma dapat `tulang-tulang' ikan saja. Bila kita bising....KITA DILABEL SEBAGAI TIDAK MENYOKONG BN..!!
DATO SERI MOHD NAJIB patut dan harus memikirkan isu-isu `SENSITIF' begini...kerana isu-isu inilah yang sedang digunakan oleh PKR SABAH/SAPP untuk `meraih' undi pengundi SABAH. Kita semua sedia maklum...rakyat SABAH ni memang `panas baran' kalau isu jomo Semenanjung & jomo Sabah diungkit2 atau digunakan oleh pihak pembangkang... Biasalah, semua kami ni ada `DARAH MAT SALLEH'... nyah ki'tei, sian legi???
PH jadi 4 sekawan, bakal banyak 3 penjuru? - Begitu simbolik jika cita-cita Setiausaha Agong PH, Dato Saifuddin Abdullah untuk PPBM menyertai PH tercapai. Baca laporan Sinar Harian: PH, Bersatu baka...
