Abdullah endorses Musa’s leadership


Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has endorsed the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman. Abdullah pointed out that Musa had managed to keep the State Barisan Nasional coalition parties united and he also said that there is a need to further strengthen the BN administration in Sabah. He stated this during a dinner with leaders of State BN component parties hosted by the State Government at Magellan Hotel here last night. During a meeting with the Sabah leaders earlier yesterday, Abdullah thanked Sabahans for giving the mandate to the BN in last month’s general election. “I wish to take this opportunity to extend my congratulations and thanks to everyone and the Chief Minister (Datuk Seri Musa Aman) for the cooperation in the BN which led to the big victory in the general election,” he said. Leaders of the eight Sabah BN component parties had expressed their appreciation to Abdullah for having listened to their views and having agreed to consider their requests made at the meeting with him. They also expressed support for Abdullah as the BN Chairman.
