KUCHING: Sarawak is fortunate to have a leader who is committed to prioritising rapid development in the rural areas in line with the digital economy.
Federal Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said this in a Facebook post yesterday (Jan 13) in conjunction with Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg’s fifth anniversary as chief minister.
“Congratulations to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg who has led Sarawak with excellence for five years,” said the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Women vice-chief.
She said the people were confident in the chief minister’s leadership as evidenced by Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) convincing victory in securing 76 out of 82 state seats in the recently concluded 12th state election.
“His initiative in introducing digital transformation since the beginning of his appointment as chief minister in 2017 has made Sarawak one of the earliest states to instil in the people the digital economy revolution concept which is much needed today.
“I, as Batang Sadong MP, representing the people of Batang Sadong, am very proud of the leadership of the chief minister,” she said.
Nancy hoped that Sarawak and its people will continue to progress under Abang Johari’s leadership.
