Overcome disagreements in Keluarga Malaysia spirit, says Abang Johari
KUCHING: Sarawak premier Abang Johari Openg hopes that any disagreement between the state and the federal government can be resolved amicably in the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia.
He said as one big family, there will be differences of opinion between Sarawak and the peninsula.
However, he said such a situation is not a big issue if an amicable solution can be reached.
“There are no differences that we can’t overcome if they are discussed in a sincere way for mutual benefit and win-win results,” he said in his speech at the closing ceremony of the Malaysian Family Aspirations Tour (AKM) at Dataran Perayaan Petra Jaya here today.
The closing ceremony was officiated by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
Abang Johari said he appreciated the autonomy and “little freedom” given for Sarawak to make its own decisions in the Federation of Malaysia for the sake of the state’s progress.
He hoped that through this freedom, Sarawak would become on par with other developed areas in the country.
“As part of the big Malaysian Family, I am sure that the prime minister and the nation’s leadership would like to see the success of any development programme implemented in Sarawak,” he said.
