KUCHING (8 May 2018): Malays in Sarawak should be thankful for having a political party like Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) which unites the community and never takes their unity for granted.
Petra Jaya incumbent Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof who gave this reminder at a fund-raising dinner hosted by Sarawak Malay Graduates Association (IGMS) at a local hotel on Sunday added that Sarawak Malays should look at the Malays in Peninsular Malaysia who are divided by political affiliation.
“Here in Sarawak, the Malays are united under PBB which is why we have no issue of division within the community here. I hope Sarawakian Malays will always appreciate unity,” he said.
The dinner, which was also held to mark the association’s 24th anniversary, raised about RM100,000 for the association’s activities.
Fadillah also advised IGMS to help the Malay community to keep up with the latest technological advances and acquire technical skills.
“I believe most of us are aware of latest technologies which can help us in our daily lives, but we need to learn how to use it as well. Hence I hope IGMS can help by teaching the community how to use them,” he said.
Also present at the dinner were Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Integrity and Ombudsman) Datuk Talib Zulpilip, IGMS president Datu Dr Sanib Said and others.[Source: “Fadillah tells Malays not to take their unity for granted” published by BorneoPost Online]
