Sabah Umno chief Musa Aman has urged party leaders and members in the state to cut the polemics and politicking among themselves, but to instead focus their thoughts and energy on
improving the people’s lot.
Musa, who is also Sabah Chief Minister, said too much polemics and little work done would not bring any benefit to the people, state and country as a whole.
“What is important is to carry out the work entrusted to us by the people. Go down to the ground to meet them and know their problems. I’ve always told Umno leaders and members to talk less and work more.”
Musa said this to reporters after simultaneously opening the Tuaran Umno delegates’ meeting and its Wanita, Youth and Puteri Umno meetings at the Sulaman Community Hall in Tuaran today.
Also present were Tuaran Umno division chief and state Housing and Local Government Minister Hajiji Noor, and the division’s deputy chief, Abdul Rahman Dahlan, who is also federal Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister.
Earlier, in his speech, Musa reminded Umno leaders and members to continue to focus on the party’s struggle and not lose direction, as it was normal that in any struggle, there would be challenges, tribulations and “thorns”, especially in a big political party like Umno.
“That is why I’ve always told (the elected representatives) that they should not regard themselves as just ‘Yang Berhomat’ (Honourable Member) but also as ‘Yang Berkhidmat’ (Serving Member) to the people.
“This is the way and approach to ensure Umno and the other component parties in Barisan Nasional remain stable and strong,” he said.
He also reminded Umno leaders and members the importance of upholding the culture of being loyal to the party leadership and being united in the interest of the party.
