Kota Kinabalu: THE diverse ethnic groups in Sabah that can sit together at one table reflects the true spirit and aspirations of the Keluarga Malaysia concept, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaacob.

He said Sabah people’s openness in fostering inter-racial harmony could establish a big family that was able to face whatever challenges that lie ahead.

“As the Kadazan saying goes ‘Osusa Toi Asanang Tomoi-mo Mi-i-so’, which means during good or bad times, we will continue to stay united as a Keluarga Malaysia. This is my ultimate hope.

“When I introduced the Keluarga Malaysia concept, the people of Sabah were all smiles because the basic value of unity in diversity is ingrained in the life of the Keluarga Malaysia in this State,” he said. Also present were Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor, Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan and Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam; Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee, State Cabinet Ministers and senior ministry fficials.

“I hope Keluarga Malaysia in Sabah will take advantage of the facilities provided and appreciate the true meaning of the Keluarga Malaysia Aspirations which guarantee the harmony and wellbeing of Keluarga Malaysia,” he said.
