KOTA KINABALU: Civil servants in the state have been urged to focus on implementing Sabah’s development agenda with professionalism.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor said the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) government won the mandate of the rakyat and he wants all civil servants to put aside their differences to support the government of the day with professionalism.
“The GRS government took over in challenging times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many government programmes and activities had to be postponed, but as soon as this pandemic subsides, we will ensure all development plans proceed, ” he added.
He said this when addressing his first post-Cabinet meeting with heads of departments and government-linked companies (GLCs) here on Thursday (Nov 26).
Also present were Special Tasks Minister Datuk Arifin Arif and State Secretary Datuk Seri Safar Untong.
Over the past month, Hajiji has been determined to keep abreast of state affairs since reporting for work after his bout with Covid-19 by calling for briefings and updates from all heads of departments and GLCs.
His priority was also to ensure that all important positions in government and agencies are promptly filled and helmed to ensure businesses could proceed seamlessly.
At the grassroots level, the state government has appointed 44 community development leaders recently, with 29 more to be appointed including Community Development Officers, as well as Village Security and Development Committees.
