1 Civil Service?
There has been a lot of Hoo Hahs recently about the proposal to have a One Civil Service Administration to reflect the 1Malaysia Concept. Many SMSes have been flooding my phone asking me how Nadai Nama Nama feels about it since I am in the State Civil Service. Thus it would be very hard to be neutral here. So I guess I won't say much except for just putting up the newspaper clips of the story for the readers' attention. Pictures paint a thousand words they say.
Now we go to the clipping from the Borneo Post of 25 August 2009 and the Federal State Secretary's idea of having a One Administration during the jalur Gemilang Campaign kickoff at Bangunan Sultan Izkandar. Someone please count how many Sarawakian Directors or Senior Officers you can see here because I have to be honest (and I have to say this without prejudice) I have not dealt with many of the Federal Departmental Heads there myself. I have only met the Federal State Secretary in Sri Aman during the State Level King's Birthday Celebration this year. If I do not know any of the federal agencies' top bosses from Headquarters - it does show that they have not been doing enough 'Turun Padang' sessions to drop by Sri Aman - what more the other rural places in Sarawak. Even if they do drop by, its just to visit and look see look see the Benak. So if I am to evaluate what our State Secretary says - Teamwork, it carries a lot of weight in the picture..... but when the Federal State Secretary talks of 1Civil Service Administration....its like rubbing Alladin's Lamp. It would be enough for the State - Federal Government to work together as a Team with the spirit of 1Malaysia in mind. Maybe that was what he had in mind? But my wishes for a Peaceful and Prosperous Malaysia benefitting all Malaysians is genuine.That much Nadai Nama Nama can say.
