KOTA KINABALU, July 15 — Malaysia is fortunate to have a prime minister’s wife who has a lot of ideas and is highly committed to helping the government develop the country, says Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.
He said Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor’s commitment in assisting efforts by the government led by her husband Datuk Seri Najib Razak in putting the people first had shown results in the creation of such programmes as Permata Negara.
“We can see that the objective of the Permata Negara programme is to produce human capital that will be vital asset in developing the country.
“We need to continue to support the efforts of Datin Seri Rosmah who is also concerned and pays a lot of attention to the plight of the less fortunate and disabled, among the groups needed to be given priority.”
Musa said this when officiating at the Annual Programme of the Wives of Barisan Nasional Elected Representatives 2010 here today.
Also present were Rosmah, as president of the Welfare Body of the Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti), and Musa’s wife Datin Seri Faridah Tussin, who is the president of the Welfare Body of Sabah BN Elected Representatives (Bakisa).
Musa said the wives of BN elected representatives played an important role in strengthening ties within the coalition.
“Although we have different backgrounds as we come from different states, it does not hamper us from being truly united... we are 1 Malaysia,” he said.
Musa also said the annual programme, which gathered the wives of BN elected representatives nationwide to forge understanding, unity and solidarity, would indirectly enhance the credibility and image of BN leaders and the government in the eyes of the people. — Bernama
