Warisan aims to be clean govt

Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie leads by example on board an AirAsia flight with wife, Datin Hajjah Shuryani binti Datuk Shuaib.

KOTA KINABALU: The new Warisan-led government aims to be a clean, lean, mean machine with focus on a more well thought out public spending.

Sabah’s newly minted ministers have been advised to adhere to the rules and regulations and to not go overboard, especially with government expenditure.

“There must be no wanton spending of public funds,” Chief Minister Datuk Seri Haji Mohd Shafie bin Haji Apdal said in a statement after chairing his first Cabinet meeting Thursday.

“The people must come first as what Parti Warisan Sabah pledged in our campaigns for GE14 and unnecessary spending must be curbed.

“We must be lean and tough and yet we must look at people-centric projects that will benefit all, but in particular the rural poor. For far too long they have been neglected and their needs must be quickly looked into.”
