Kadazan Dusun Murut community urged to give mandate to Najib
KOTA KINABALU: Malaysian Kadazan Dusun Murut Organisation (KDM Malaysia) president Datuk Peter Anthony has called on Sabahans to give their mandate to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to continue with the government's transformation agenda.
He said since taking over the country's leadership more than four years ago, Najib had been working hard by going to the ground to listen to the people's problems.
"This is the leader that we want, where within a short period many transformation or changes have been done for the people.
"For that reason, I call on the KDM community to be together with the Prime Minister to realise his noble mission to see our country become a developed nation by 2020," he told Bernama here Friday.
Peter was asked on the encouraging response given by the KDM community to Najib's visit to the Beaufort, Papar and Tuaran parliamentary constituencies.
He said it showed that the people of Sabah were solid behind Najib, the architect of the 1Malaysia concept, and because Barisan Nasional had proven capable of looking after the people's interests.
"I see that the majority of the KDM community in Sabah, including in the interior areas, now understand the purpose of the opposition pact's struggle which is merely to achieve their family and personal interests.
"They have no purpose at all to fight for the rights of the Sabah people, compared with BN which has brought development to improve the living standard of the people," he added.
Peter said although there were still some weaknesses in the implementation of development projects, especially rural projects, that could be rectified. - Bernama
