PBS Labuk division supports Najib and Musa


KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Labuk division delegates during its recent annual general meeting, unanimously passed a resolution expressing their continued support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

This is in line with the party supreme council’s decision to continue supporting the prime minister which was relayed to the latter in a memorandum that was handed over to him on September 13, said divisional chief Datuk Seri Panglima Michael Asang.

Michael who tabled the resolution pointed out that of late many challenges have been thrown at the country but under Najibs leadership, steps were taken to overcome them, especially issues that affect Sabahans.

One of the pertinent issues that Sabahans were not happy about was the presence of illegal immigrants in the state but Najib was the Prime Minister who instructed for a Royal Commission on the matter to be set up and its findings as well as recommendations are being looked into by a special committee towards the resolution to the problem, he said.

According to him, under Najib’s administration, the federal government also worked towards resolving the land problem faced by many native Sabahans through the setting up of an annual fund and also the issuance of land titles.

TThe federal government had also set up ESSCom and ESSZone to increase security of the people in Sabah and also to thwart human trafficking activities. Najib also has personally announced more decentralization of powers thus giving Sabah more autonomy, something the state leaders have been repeatedly asking for.

B”Both Najib and Musa have brought many changes to Sabah as they continue to work towards the development of the state,” he said at the meeting which was officiated by PBS secretary general Datuk Johnny Mositun.

He also urged the delegates not to be easily influenced by the action of those who only want to tarnish and bring down BN leaders, and added that these people are sensationalising issues and twisting the facts on matters such as the GST, BR1M, 1MDB, and the RM2.6 billion donation.

During the AGM, the delegates also urged the state government to expedite the setting up of a Land and Survey Department office in Telupid so that land issues in the area can be resolved directly from there.

They also called for the immediate setting up of a district office in Telupid so that assessment and taxes can be paid there.
