Ismail Sabri: Good news for civil servants to be announced on Aug 30

PUTRAJAYA (Aug 21): Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on Sunday hinted that he will announce good news for civil servants on Aug 30.

He said the Malaysian Family government under his leadership always appreciates the sacrifices of civil servants, including members of the security forces, under the leadership of the Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali.

The prime minister said when disasters strike the country, such as the unexpected major floods, the security forces, such as the Royal Malaysian Police, the Malaysian Armed Forces, the Fire and Rescue Department, the Social Welfare Department, the Health Department, the Implementation Coordination Unit, the National Disaster Management Agency, and various other government agencies, continue to operate with full dedication.

"InsyaAllah (God willing), we will announce something cheerful for civil servants this Aug 30. Just wait," he said when opening the Keluarga Malaysia Symposium at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on Sunday.

According to the prime minister, he will make the announcement at the "Majlis Amanat Perdana Perkhidmatan Awam" scheduled for Aug 30.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Ismail Sabri said there were many sad stories involving health workers who sacrificed their lives when dealing with patients affected by the virus.

He said the services and sacrifices of these unsung heroes will be etched in the country's history.

According to him, the hard work of all parties and the success of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, in particular, made Malaysia one of the countries that recorded the fastest vaccination rate, subsequently enabling it to transition to the endemic phase on April 1.

"A government will only be strong and effective if it gets support from all parties. Alhamdulillah, the Malaysian Family government has never disputed or underestimated the sacrifices of civil servants.

"Likewise, the social activists who are dedicated to serving the country, especially through non-governmental organisations, the Malaysian Family government always remembers their contributions," he said.

In his speech, on behalf of the government, the prime minister also thanked the health workers for working hard to save the Covid-19 victims.
