KOTA KINABALU: The people should value the sacrifices of frontliners and appreciate efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19, says the Sabah Chief Minister.
Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor (pic) said although Muslims would spend Hari Raya with restrictions for the second consecutive year, they should not downplay the significance of the celebration.
“To be able to celebrate Hari Raya under the new norm is in itself a victory for Muslims who have been fasting for a month.
“I hope all will continue to adhere to the SOP this festive season and accept that all being done by the government such as restricting movement is for the good of all, ” he said.
Hajiji said although visits and open houses were barred, Hari Raya could still serve as a platform of unity among the people.
“We must remember and appreciate the efforts of our frontliners in keeping us safe. They too have not seen their families for long, ” he said.
Hajiji urged the public to register for Covid-19 vaccination to get protected so that all could return to their daily routines as soon as possible.
