Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said all party members must ensure BN and Umno stayed strong and stable and remained a party that champions the interests and welfare of the people.

“We must be united and have mutual respect. We must work hard to remain stable and strong. What is important is that, we must always go down to the ground to meet the people to find out about the problems they face.

“We must constantly work... talk less, but put in a lot of work even though we do not know when the elections will be held,” he said.

Musa, who is also state UMNO liaison committee chairman said this at the simultaneous opening of the UMNO branches, Wanita, Youth and Puteri movements meetings in the Kota Marudu Division here today.

“What is important, is that whatever we (UMNO) promised earlier we will fulfill,” he said. --Bernama
