He said Sabah BN was prepared to face the general election and determined to repeat its excellent performance at the 2008 election, which saw the party make a clean sweep of 60 state and 25 parliamentary seats.
"I'm confident that all the BN division machinery are fully prepared.
I'm also satisfied with the statewide polls in terms of voters attitude as the majority of them are pro-BN.
"I'm very confident that Sabah will remain a 'blue state' (blue for BN).
This is a statement based on the facts and data presented to me," he told reporters.
Later during the inspection of progress at a SIB church, he urged the people to "continue to support the leadership of Musa because he brought a lot of development to the State."
Asked about the division of seats among the component parties in the state, particularly the seat allocated to the Sabah Progressive Party before it left BN, Muhyiddin said the matter would be decided soon by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is BN Chairman.
The next few weeks are very important for BN to further strengthen its position in every area, he added.
Attention would be given to certain groups of voters such as young and first time voters.
He expressed satisfaction with the close relationship among the Sabah BN component parties, which was the party's strength.
"This is BN's strength and we'll defend it.
We have no problems compared to the opposition parties, who are still in a confused state.
We know they have many issues," he said.
