Sandakan: As head of the Sabah Government, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman (pic) said he would continue defending the peace and sovereignty in the state from foreign encroachment.
He said the recent intrusion by Sulu terrorists from southern Philippines in Lahad Datu, which claimed the lives of 10 members of the Malaysian security forces, would not dampen the spirit of the security forces.
"The terrorists only want to create disorder in the country, especially in Sabah. As head of the State Government, I will not allow an inch of the Sabah land to be surrendered to them," he said, during a working visit to the Sungai Kayu Voting District Centre (PDM), Saturday.
Musa, who is also State Security Committee Chairman, assured the people of the Barisan Nasional (BN) government's capability to overcome the problem.
He called on the people to help defend the country by supporting the government's action towards that end.
He also told them to continue supporting BN in the coming general election and ensure its win for continuity in the state's development.
On Umno's preparation for the general election, Musa, who is also Sabah Umno Chairman, said he was satisfied.
