Spirit of unity vital to realise MA63

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawakians must continue to be united in spirit and voice to achieve the goal of restoring the rights of the state as enshrined in the Constitution and Malaysia Agreement (MA63).

Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg said that despite having various racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds, all should work together in the ongoing efforts of restoring the state’s rights.

“This beautiful Borneo Cultures Museum (BCM) was built to bring together so many cultural elements of the different races and ethnicities that inhabit this Land of the Hornbill in the hope that it will unite us in diversity.

“Without a unification point between us, no one will protect our rights and restore the rights of Sarawak that have been eroded over the years,” he said during the official launch of the museum last night.

Abang Johari expressed his appreciation to Head of State Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud for the idea of ​​setting up the museum which had become a reality and the pride of the people of Sarawak.

“Tun’s presence at the opening ceremony is very much in line with his efforts over the years to elevate the cultural dignity and culture of the multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi -religious and multi-cultural community in the state.

“And in order to foster racial unity and be promoted to the outside world as a strength of attraction to tourists,” he said.

Earlier, Taib officiated at the launch of the new museum.
