MIRI: Sarawak continues to shine brightly as the beacon of unity and harmony in the country, claims the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP).
Party Information chief Adam Yii, who is Miri Mayor, said this peace in Sarawak reflects the true meaning of the Christmas season.
"On behalf of myself and my family and the city council I take this opportunity to wish all Mirians a blessed Christmas and a happy new year 2019.
"As we look back at 2018 we will realise the many developments that had taken place at the national scene especially in the political arena.
"In Sarawak we saw new developments too in the political scene.
" However, it is good to note that our state continues to remain the beacon of multiracial and multi-religious unity and harmony as we saw so clearly during the Dec 8 Miri Christmas Parade.
"As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this Dec 25, I hope we will use the holy day to forge togetherness with families, relatives and friends and to give thanks for the priceless peace and harmony in Sarawak.
"This should be a time of family togetherness and prayers and there is no better place to do so than the home and community where one still have families and friends to share the joy with.
“There is no greater joy than to spend Christmas with people who are close and dear,” he said in his Christmas message.
