Enhance unity, stop speculating — Dr Leo
Borneo Post October 24, 2011, MondayMUKAH: Mukah MP Dato Sri Dr Muhammed Leo Toyad last Saturday called on grassroots leaders and members of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) and Barisan Nasional (BN) in Mukah not to indulge too much in speculations and politicking about the party’s candidacy in Mukah as it could undermine the party’s strength and credibility.
Instead, Dr. Leo called on them to enhance their unity and work harder to win the hearts and minds of the people so that Mukah will remain a safe seat in the 13th general election.
Dr. Leo said this when he spoke to PBB grassroots leaders and members from Balingian and Dalat divisions here at a dinner last Saturday.
The dinner was also attended by vice-chairman Akit Sebli, secretary councillor Abdul Yakub Arbi, Wanita chief Jaidah Bujang, deputy chairman of PBB Dalat councillor Kenil Jeraiee, Dalat Wanita chief councillor Hadiah Jeraee, PBB Youth exco member Raymund Tanin, sub-branches heads councillor Adeni Bohari (Ranting Kampung Penakub Hilir), councillor Anderson Kalong Pandong (Ranting Bukit Engkerbai) and Mawang Ngabok (Ranting Kemesu, Ulu Kenyana).
“ I am still the elected representative here and I am going to defend the seat (Mukah) unless I am told otherwise (by BN top leadership),” said Dr Leo adding that he was very sure BN-PBB will defend the Mukah seat.
Dr Leo also commended the good teamwork among PBB and BN grassroots leaders and members.
“I think we have a very good team in Mukah, Dalat and Balingian who work as a team in serving the people. That is the greatest thing I have seen in my over 30 years in politics. We are all committed in serving the people,” said Dr Leo.
Meanwhile, four grassroots leaders – councillor Adeni Bohari, councillor Anderson Kalong, councillor Hadiah and Mawang called on PBB and BN top leadership to nominate Dr Leo to defend Mukah seat for BN-PBB in this coming election.
They agreed that Dr Leo has the capability in bringing greater development to improve the well-being of the people in Mukah.

“Moreover, Dr Leo is a winnable candidate for BN-PBB in Mukah parliament,” said the four grassroots leaders to local reporters at the gathering.
