See salutes Abang Johari for continuing Adenan’s legacy

SImage result for see chee howee Chee How (PKR-Batu Lintang) has commended Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg for declaring his determination to continue the legacy of his predecessor.

See said it can be seen from Abang Johari’s new cabinet line-up which is according to what he envisages Sarawak to be in the future as well as to prepare and organise his administration for global socio-economic and political trends and opportunities.

“The elevation and mounting emphasis on education, oil and gas, energy development, digital economy, international trade and e-commerce development, native land development, urban public transportation and the setting up of the State Ombudsman are indicative of his directions to re-engineer the state’s governance and that deserves our due recognition and support.

“The message is clear: The march for Sarawak’s economic and civil political rights is on,” he said when debating the Yang di-Pertua Negeri’s address during the DUN sitting yesterday.

“I pray that I am right to say, that our Right Honourable Chief Minister is tuning the executive to be ready for the eventual successes in the series of discussions and meetings on the devolution of powers. I am positive with it, for why do we have a Ministry of Education if we do not foresee any headway in our pursuit for education autonomy, Sarawak’s ‘freedom in education’ as our former Chief Minister had set out to achieved?” See said; Sarawakians hope our Sarawak Education Minister would not find himself not really having any more authority or responsibility than what our present state director of education has.

“I look forward to the winding-up speech by Yang Amat Berhormat Ketua Menteri and am hopeful that the Right Honourable Chief Minister will enlighten this august House on the progress of our quest for autonomy and devolution of power.” See said he must, however, repeat his gentle caution that the re-engineering of the state’s governance will require the fullest support of all Sarawakians, and that warrants the new administration to adopt a new mindset towards the opposition parties in Sarawak, to recognise their positive and constructive roles in checking and monitoring the functions and performance of the administration.

The mechanisms and process for ‘check and balance’ should also be elevated and enhanced, he added.

He also took the opportunity to pay tribute and give credit to the late former Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem for leading Sarawak on a march to “start anew, to claim and defend what are rightfully ours, the autonomy promised and envisaged, to vigorously pursue the devolution of power”.

“In quoting Adenan: “I love Sarawak and I want the people of Sarawak to love and care for Sarawak as much as I do”, See said,” let it be recorded that the fifth Chief Minister of Sarawak had left this fairland Sarawak with those parting words.

“Indeed, in his three-year tenure, ‘Sarawak’ and ‘Sarawakians’ had meant much more to the people of Sarawak than in the last 54 years. This fairland Sarawak and her people were on his mind until his last breath.”

Correspondingly, See said the name “Adenan Satem” was carved in the hearts of all Sarawakians.

“In her moving maiden speech, I am heartened to note that the  Honourable Member for Tanjong Datu (who is also Adenan’s wife Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu) had acknowledged that and found solace and comfort in her irreparable loss.

“With the late former Chief Minister, we have begun our march for economic and civil political rights for a new Sarawak. That is his legacy. We have to soldier on.

“I fervently wish that our Right Honourable Chief Minister will lead all Sarawakians to scale greater heights, for what Sarawak and Sarawakians truly deserve, for the betterment of all and our future generations.”
