Don't believe opinion polls, Shafie tells Sabahans

KOTA KINABALU: The people of Sabah should not be influenced by a public opinion poll that inferred voter satisfaction of Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman has plummeted, said Umno vice-president Mohd Shafie Apdal.

Mohd Shafie, who is also Member of Parliament for Semporna, said what was important is that Sabah leaders had been working hard to develop the state and were not overawed by an approval rating.

The state government has performed its duties well and the people should support the development agenda, he told reporters after closing Kemas kindergarten’s ‘Potential Day’ at Sekolah Menengah Teknik Likas here today.

A survey by the Merdeka Centre for Opinion Research has detected that the satisfaction of Sabah voters towards Musa, who has been chief minister for almost a decade, has dropped from 60 per cent in November 2009 to below 50 per cent in September 2012.

Mohd Shafie, who is also Rural and Regional Development Minister, said about 4,000 Community Development Department (Kemas) teachers had their salary upgraded to Grade S27 after completing their diploma in pre-school education.

In his speech, he said Sabah boasted 1,360 Kemas kindergartens with 27,014 children. -Bernama
