KIMANIS — Kimanis UMNO Division chief Datuk Seri Anifah Aman is confident that the people in the Kimanis parliamentary constituency will continue to support the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the 14th General Election (GE14) on May 9.
The Foreign Minister said the the electorate of Kimanis, which also comprised Bongawan and Membakut state seats were courteous and appreciative of all the development efforts brought by the government there.
Anifah, who is the incumbent for the Kimanis parliamentary seat, said the existence of candidates from opposition parties in the state would not affect the loyalty and support of the people in Kimanis to BN.
“Whoever is the opposition candidate (in GE14)…we are not worried…a fight is a fight. I am confident the people in Kimanis will continue to support BN,” he said at a gathering with Bongawan residents, which was officiated by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also BN Deputy President here today.
Also present were Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin; incumbent for the Bongawan state seat Datuk Mohamad Alamin and Membakut state seat incumbent Datuk Mohd Arifin Arif.
Anifah said the party machinery would also support any BN candidate chosen to represent the Parliamentary seat and two state seats in Kimanis in the GE14 to ensure a BN victory.
Meanwhile Anifah also thanked the government for developing the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT) in Kimanis and the Pan Borneo Highway which would definitely benefit the people in the constituency.
However, he said much more development was needed by the Kimanis residents, including roads, clean water and electricity.
As such, he said the people in Kimanis should fully support the BN in GE14 to enable their aspirations to see more development in the constituency materialised. – BERNAMA
