Changing government’ will not stop the spread of Covid-19, why waste time and effort

KOTA KINABALU, August 4, 2021: Deputy Chief Minister, Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam, said it is important for the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) State Government to give its full attention to resolving the Covid-19 problem in the State, than wasting time and effort on the “tukar kerajaan (changing government)” politics.

“This is definitely not the time for changing a government. How can we be sure that the spread of Covid-19 will stop after we change the government? Or maybe it will get worse…there is no certainty,” said Dr Joachim, who is also Minister of Industrial Development (MID).

The Kundasang Assemblyman said the people of Sabah had given GRS the mandate in last year’s State Election, so it is the duty of GRS leaders now to fulfil it.

“Let us not continue with playing politics and give full focus on resolving the Covid-19 problem,” said Dr Joachim, who is also Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Vice President, in supporting the GRS State Government to continue the mandate given by the people.

Dr Joachim said the GRS Government is also on track in attracting foreign and local investors to Sabah.

Yesterday, Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Hajiji Haji Noor, who is also the GRS Chairman, said leaders of the GRS have reached a consensus to maintain cooperation in the State Government and uphold the mandate given by the people at the 16th State elections in September last year.
