TUARAN: The existing strong unity among the multi-racial and religious people in the state and country must be protected at all times.
Wilfred Madius Tangau, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation said this might sound like a cliche but it was important that the people are kept on their toes.
“We need to be wary of any attempt be it coming from inside or outside to threaten the very pillar of state and country,” he said.
Speaking after making his annual Chinese New Year walkabout here Friday, Tangau who is MP for Tuaran was glad to note that the unique harmony and high level of tolerance among the people continue to prevail here.
“I am happy that we are able to greet each other and celebrate Chinese New Year together with our Chinese friends in really a harmonious manner,” he said.
Together with the Upko acting president at the walkabout were Jahid Jahim, PBS Tamparuli chief cum Community Development Leader and Barisan Nasional component leaders as well as community leaders.
