Te­lang Usan rep pays trib­ute to Chief Min­is­ter’s lead­er­ship

The Borneo Post - - HOME -

MIRI: Since be­com­ing the sixth chief min­is­ter of Sarawak on Jan 13, 2017, Datuk Pat­inggi Abang Jo­hari Tun Openg has man­aged to bring Sarawak to a higher level with a new di­men­sion.

In say­ing this, Te­lang Usan as­sem­bly­man Den­nis Ngau said Sarawakians are en­joy­ing the re­sults of Abang Jo­hari’s steady lead­er­ship even in a short pe­riod of time.

“Armed with an ex­pe­ri­ence with the rul­ing gov­ern­ment for over 30 years and hav­ing held var­i­ous po­si­tions from as­sis­tant min­is­ter to full min­is­ter, CM Abang Jo (Abang Jo­hari) has launched the right de­vel­op­ment agenda.

“This is the dif­fer­ence be­tween a leader who re­ally has the abil­ity, and one who acts smart.

“A leader like this is what we want and seek – the pure, clever, un­der­stand­ing leader who un­der­stands the feel­ings and needs of the peo­ple,” said Den­nis yes­ter­day, in hon­our­ing Abang Jo­hari’s sec­ond year as Sarawak Chief Min­is­ter on Sun­day.

Be­ing so grate­ful for what Abang Jo­hari has done for Sarawak since be­ing ap­pointed as the chief min­is­ter, Den­nis said the ru­ral res­i­dents in Ulu Baram es­pe­cially in Te­lang Usan and Mulu con­stituen­cies are grate­ful to God for plac­ing Abang Jo­hari as Sarawak Chief Min­is­ter and a leader ex­traor­di­naire.

“Con­tin­u­ing the ef­forts of pre­vi­ous chief min­is­ters who had suc­ceeded in putting Sarawak in a rel­a­tively good stead to­day, the in­tel­li­gence en­dowed by God to CM Abang Jo has en­abled us to in­spire the de­vel­op­ment of new ways es­pe­cially those brought to our con­stituen­cies with the es­tab­lish­ment of the High­land De­vel­op­ment Agency ( HDA).

“HDA is a pure in­spi­ra­tion from Abang Jo and through HDA, the state gov­ern­ment has ap­proved RM1.5 bil­lion to im­ple­ment ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture projects in Te­lang Usan and Mulu state con­stituen­cies,” re­vealed Den­nis.

Den­nis pointed out that be­fore Abang Jo­hari be­came the chief min­is­ter, there were in­deed ef­forts to de­velop the ru­ral ar­eas, but no fed­eral and state lead­ers had taken bold ac­tion like Abang Jo­hari.

“Never in the his­tory of Te­lang Usan and Mulu had the gov­ern­ment pro­vided in­cred­i­ble and spe­cial pro­vi­sions for the de­vel­op­ment of our con­stituen­cies of Te­lang Usan and Mulu, like what CM Abang Jo and the state gov­ern­ment did.

“This is the first phase and CM Abang Jo promised as long as he con­tin­ues to be en­trusted with lead­ing the state, he will con­tinue with these tire­less ef­forts,” said Den­nis.

“For me, our peo­ple shall give a strong and un­wa­ver­ing sup­port to CM Abang Jo and the Gabun­gan Parti Sarawak (GPS) gov­ern­ment to con­tinue with de­vel­op­ment in Sarawak, es­pe­cially in the ru­ral ar­eas,” he em­pha­sised.

Den­nis re­it­er­ated that un­der the lead­er­ship of Abang Jo­hari, many new ini­tia­tives were in­tro­duced in­clud­ing dig­i­tal econ­omy, the De­vel­op­ment Bank of Sarawak ( DBOS), and Petroleum Sarawak Bhd ( Pet­ros).
