SIBU: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said Barisan Nasional (BN) government wants to transform Sibu again.

Speaking at the Harmony Night at Sibu Gateway last night, he said it could only be realised if there was a cooperation between Sibu and the government.

He pointed out that Sibu had been developed since the late Patinggi Wong Soon Kai and when the late Datuk Robert Lau became MP, he transformed Sibu.

“Sibu has changed since then. Where can we get the largest central market except in Sibu,” he enthused.

He said when he was a Housing Minister, he transformed Sibu Jaya and now, Sibu Jaya became a modern town with boulevard.

“Therefore, we want to transform Sibu again, but we must have cooperation between Sibu and the government,” he urged.

He said that the state government is still Barisan Nasional government and would govern the state for another three years.

He hoped that that Barisan Nasional would take back Sibu seat in this coming election.

“We need to have the common melody and the same tune to be able to work together. That is why we need to be united,” he pointed out.

He also hoped that that Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) and United People’s Party (UPP) would be united for the sake of the future of the Sarawak.

Also present at the event were his wife Datin Patinggi Dato Juma’ani Tun Tuanku Bujang, Minister of International Trade and E-Commerce Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh, his wife Datin Sri Pauline Leong, and Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian.
