Musa Aman likens opposition to dodgy ‘medicine sellers’

May 08, 2012

KOTA KINABALU, May 8 — Datuk Seri Musa Aman has likened the opposition to “medicine sellers” who are full of empty promises, Bernama Online reported today.

The Sabah chief minister (picture) said that despite evident progress and a strong financial reserve, the opposition still “belittled” the efforts of the state government.

The news portal quoted Musa as saying, “They, particularly Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and DAP, have come here to confuse the people but the medicine they bring is not effective.

“Don’t believe the opposition because BN (Barisan Nasional) has the best track record compared with the opposition which only know how to talk.”

He added that various new concepts proposed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak were designed to aid or assist Sabahans to attain a better standard of living.

One of the government’s successes is the country’s relative peace, which has boosted tourism and foreign investments, Musa said.

The BN state chairman, who was speaking at the launch of the BN Wanita election machinery, also urged members of the wing to disseminate information on the government’s policies and programmes to those on the grassroots level to counter opposition claims.
