SIBU: Members of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), a major component of the state Barisan Nasional (BN), here have vowed their undivided support for the Chief Minister, Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud, to continue leading this state.

Nangka assemblyman Datuk Awang Bemee Ali Basah said that Pehin Sri’s leadership had united all ethnic groups on the basis of power sharing through the Barisan Nasional (BN) which had developed Sarawak into a robust state politically and economically.

“Development has not always been easy because we are made up of 26 ethnic groups and over 5,000 settlements scattered all over the state,” he said in his welcoming speech at an Aidilfitri gathering organised by Sibu PBB on Tuesday evening. The guest of honour was the Chief Minister.

Bemee, who is also chairman of the Board of Trustees of Islamic Welfare Sibu (LAKIS) and the event organising committee chairman said, “the people here want the Chief Minister’s visionary leadership and strategic direction for a better future”.

He also expressed his confidence that with Pehin Sr i’s leadership and his brainchild project - Sarawak Corridor Of Renewable Energy (SCORE) - Sarawak would definitely develop by leaps and bounds.

“We want and need the leadership of Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib and we want him to stay on as our leader.

“The Chief Minister has set political unity at the core of this state and that is why Malaysia, and Sarawak in particular, has become a role model.

“We have discovered in the central zone abundant renewable energy thus the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) which has already attracted foreign direct investments worth billions of ringgit,” Bemee said.

He added that in the 2008-2009 period, Sarawak became the preferred state for foreign direct investments with RM5.9 billion out of RM8.5 billion invested throughout the country coming Sarawak’s way.

“This proves that foreign investors believe in the leadership of the Chief Minister,” he added.
