KOTA KINABALU, September 21, 2020: Perikatan Nasional candidate for N21 Luyang, Gee Tien Siong, said the Philippines’ repeated provocations against Sabah’s sovereignty are totally unacceptable.
He said there are many Filipino immigrants, including those who are illegally residing in Sabah and such actions by the Philippines will mislead, stir up false hopes among Filipinos in the state, embolden them and create threats to our social order and security.
On October 13 last year, a large number of Filipinos gathered around the Luyang Community Hall caused a stir upon the Luyang residents. This reflected that the Warisan government had little regard on the seriousness of the issue. Voters must be discerning and analyse carefully which is the better party and who the right candidate,” said Gee, who is a vice president of Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) during a walkabout campaign at Gaya Street Sunday fair.
He rather not further criticise any of his opponents, because their coming forward to be candidate is already a performance of social responsibility.
Gee emphasized that he will fulfil his campaign promises to Luyang voters with practical actions and not someone out to seek internet fame only.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Luyang residents also face the threat of Dengue fever, the main cause of it by clogged drains. He said this will be his first priority once he is elected, to resolve the drainage problem as an assemblyman.
He saw many candidates of various political parties were sending our flyers to share political opinions during the walkabout where their supporters wear clothes with various designs and colours, making Gaya Street look more vibrant and lively during this campaign period.
When commenting about GE16, he believes all parties were caught off guard with a snap election but he wish to remind for everyone to strictly adhere to SOP during this pandemic.
“As the Covid-19 cases showing signs of increase recently, people must be more careful, wash their hands frequently, wear masks and maintain physical distancing and extra careful on voting day,” Gee cautioned.
