People believe in sincere leaders

Date:

MATU: The Gabungan Parti Sarawak’s (GPS) victory in 76 seats out of 82 contested in the last state election proves that the people, especially in Matu, believe in the sincere and honest leadership of Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

Deputy Minister in the Premier’s Department (Integrity and Ombudsman) and Jemoreng assemblyman Datuk Dr Juanda Jaya said it signified that the people here want to see Matu move forward and not to lag behind in development.

In this regard, he said it was time for the government to keep its promises and that development projects promised were implemented promptly, while elected representatives must visit their constituencies often to check on developments on the ground.

“This is an era when elected representatives cannot just sit back. The people are smart to observe, with the existence of social media, and can evaluate and appreciate elected representatives who work and deliver on their promises.

“As an elected representative, I want Matu to receive equitable development as based on my observation, our area is lagging behind other areas that are developing and fast changing.”

“That is a bitter truth and I have to mention it because it motivates us to work harder to develop our constituency instead of becoming a sleeping representative,” he explained.

He was speaking at the closing ceremony of Matu Festival 2022 in Pekan Matu today (June 8).
Juanda said the government agencies had worked hard to ensure that the promises of the Premier were duly implemented.
