PUTATAN: Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) is more solid now than it was before the defection of several leaders, according to Putatan Member of Parliament Datuk Dr Marcus Makin Mojigoh.

This is because those who had made the ruling coalition unstable had left, he said at a ceremony where he presented ‘moreh’ to 11 mosques and suraus in the district yesterday. He said he nevertheless respected their decisions and wished them the best of luck.

Mojigoh was asked to comment on the decision by Datuk Lajim Haji Ukin to resign from his posts as Umno Supreme Council member and Beaufort Umno and BN division chief with immediate effect and to declare his allegiance to Pakatan Rakyat.

He said, “It is his right. We cannot call him a traitor because our country runs on democracy.”

Mojigoh said even though those who caused instability within the party had left, it was not the time for BN members to be comfortable.

“We have to work really hard to convince the people and we cannot afford to be comfortable,” he said. Mojigoh said the country is in the midst of its transformation process and many of its results can be seen. “There has been a reduction in the corruption index…I hope the people will continue giving their support,” he said.

He also urged the people to distrust the promises made by the opposition parties, saying that anyone can make promises and that if the promises made in the ‘Orange Book’ were actually fulfilled, the entire nation would go bankrupt.

He said the country is continuing its journey towards further transformation and the people need to have patience. “We have already overtaken the Philippines and Indonesia even though the two countries achieved independence much earlier than us,” he said.
