TAKE OWN INITIATIVES
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Aman said every Komuniti Bestari must take its own initiatives to carry out activities in their own areas without depending entirely on the Government.
He said with sufficient planning and commitment, along with the help of the Information Ministry, all Komuniti Bestari will become capable NGOs, harnessing potentials and opportunities available in their own areas. These include the agricultural, business, tourism, and small-medium industries among others.
“I am confident that Komuniti Bestari in the State are capable of playing important roles in accomplishing policies and programs, and also to strengthen the spirit of unity and commitment in developing this State.” he said during a dinner organized by the Taman Jambo Komuniti Bestari Committee of Putatan at a hotel here last Friday.
The text of his speech was read by Deputy Chief Minister cum Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Yahya Hussin. The dinner saw the presentation of a RM1,000 donation by the Taman Jambo Komuniti Bestari to the State Welfare Department in aid of less fortunate children. Also present were Assistant Minister of Housing Datuk Edward Ynug Oui Fah, Deputy Sabah Information Director, Ibrahim Jahar, and Taman Jambo Komuniti Bestari Chairman, Hussin Kadik.
