KOTA KINABALU: Community Development Leaders (PPM) under the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) State Government have been reminded to discharge their duties with commitment and integrity to help the people in their respective constituency.
“If I find there are PPMs who failed to discharge their duties and responsibilities then I as the Chief Minister will not hesitate to take action,” said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Haji Hajiji Haji Noor.
Speaking after witnessing the oath taking ceremony and presentation of appointment letters to 44 PPMs at the State Administrative Centre here on Monday, he reminded the PPMs of their duty to assist the government elected representatives to provide the best service to the people.
“This is to ensure the aspirations of the rakyat who elected the Government will be met,” he said.
An efficient PPM also formed a strong foundation at the grassroots level, which in turned create a strong government, he said.
The Chief Minister said the appointment of the PPM will pave the way for the appointment of other grassroots leaders such as the Community Development Officers (CDO), Village Security and Development Committee (JPKK) among others.
Hajiji reminded the PPM the government today was facing a challenge due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We need to push for economic recovery activities but this is currently being impeded by movement constraint. Hopefully, when the pandemic is finally no longer in Sabah we can go all out to boost the state’s economy,” he said.
