Statement By YAB CM Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Hj Aman on foreign intrusion in Lahad Datu

KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman said the security forces were in full control of the situation in Lahad Datu.

"As Chairman of the State Security Committee, I am confident that the relevant authorities are on top of the situation," he said.

He said this was the result of coordinated efforts among the police, the military and the marine coast guard, who have shown a high degree of professionalism and discipline.

"In the last few days, we have seen how the authority, especially the police, has exercised great restraint in dealing with the foreign intruders in Kampung Tanduo," he said.

He said the restraint was not a sign of weakness but rather a deeper understanding of the complexity of the issue.

Musa however, urged the foreign intruders to return to their homeland to avoid any untoward incident including bloodshed in the event that the Malaysian security forces have to take action.

"They must realise that they have clearly breached international laws and Malaysia's sovereignty. What is at stake here is our sovereignty and rights, which will not be compromised," he said.

"Once again, I appeal to the intruders to be rational and give up the futile attempt and return to their homeland peacefully," he said.

End.

Sabah will follow Sarawak

Anyone who wants to predict Sabah result in the coming general elections should take a peek at Sarawak state election held in 2011.

At that time, Anwar Ibrahim and other Pakatan leaders were criss-crossing the state, giving fiery ceramah full of character assassination, wild allegations and demonization of BN leaders, with many of their ceramahs were well attended by a lot of curious people. Not a day passed by without Pakatan making sensational and outlandish claims against BN.

But in the end, when the results were known, not only Sarawak BN won the state election, it won it handsomely with clear two thirds majority. I believe the same thing will happen in Sabah.

Pakatan brand of politics of demonization, populism and hatred ness has reached feverish pitch in Sabah. But it is for these very same reasons, I strongly believe, Sabahans will reject Pakatan outrght just like Sarawakians did in 2011.

Sabahans want a party which has clear direction and solid experence in developing the state. They want a party wth steady hands to captain the state towards vision 2020. That party is Barisan Nasional and the captains are Datuk Ser Najib Tun Razak and Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Aman.

Regrettably but predictably, Pakatan instead chose to go to the people of Sabah without realistic economic blueprint and visionary future. It chose to be arrogant, ignorant, petty and small minded, preferring splitting unity and pitting Malaysians with each other in the hope that divided people will be easier to convinced and manipulated for their own narrow interests.

In Sarawak election, PKR was adamant to be given the biggest seat allocation among Pakatan's allies. DAP and PAS reluctantly gave in and allowed PKR to contest in 49 seats out of 71 in Sarawak state election.

Anwar Ibrahim demanded the largest share of seats claiming PKR had the biggest support among Sarawakians. When the results were announced, PKR only won 3 miserable seats out of the 49 contested. In comparisan, DAP won 12 out of 15 it contested. Soon enough, PKR's greediness became the favourite joke of Sarawakians in the coffee shops for many months after the election.

Once again, I am convinced the same thing will happen in Sabah.
