Don’t be mere bystanders


CM’s advice to Muslims

KUCHING: The Sarawak government is currently unlocking the state’s wealth and Muslims have been advised not to be just bystanders.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg urged them to grab whatever opportunities that had been made available by the government to improve their livelihoods.

He said the state government was currently constructing and implementing projects to supply water and electricity throughout the state.

“In addition, the state government has also implemented various programmes under the post Covid-19 development strategy. All these are part and parcel of the state government’s efforts to further improve the state’s economy to realise the goals of transforming Sarawak into a developed state by 2030.

“We’re unlocking the state’s wealth,” he said in his speech after the Awal Muharam prayer at Masjid Jamek here yesterday.

Abang Johari said the state had only nine more years to improve its economy to be a high-income and developed state.

“We must uplift the people’s quality of life. One of the ways is to improve our economy by making use of our available resources and utilising the latest technologies to achieve maximum output.”

At the same time, he said the state needed to churn out highly skilled manpower.

Abang Johari assured that the government would be just to all under its care irrespective of race or religion.

Also present to grace the event, which was telecast live through TVS and live streamed via YouTube and Ukas FB page, was the Yang DiPertua Negeri Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.
