KOTA KINABALU – Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman last reminded the people of Sabah to refrain from playing up racial and religious sentiments that only work towards creating gaps in the society.
He said in order to maintain peace and harmony, the people should work together and respect one another.
“Our unity is our strength. We must not allow the agendas of a few to undermine what we have built over the years. It is my hope that we will continue to protect this diversity, and not succumb to efforts to disunite us,” he said.
Musa said this in his speech when launching the Chinese New Year Carnival 2015 here tonight.
The carnival, held from today until Sunday, is an annual activity jointly organised by the Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) and the Sabah Federation of Chinese Associations.
In another development, Musa suggested DBKK to come up with more cultural and community based programmes that would appeal to the public and tourists.
He said Kota Kinabalu was constantly evolving, and cooperation from all quarters was needed to continue holding more cultural and community activities to further promote Kota Kinabalu as a vibrant city. – BERNAMA
