"I was told that the federal Education Ministry has entrusted 113 dilapidated schools in Sabah to the Public Works Department (JKR) of Malaysia and Sabah JKR as the implementing agency to upgrade these schools at a cost of RM1.02 billion. Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription. “For sure, it is the hope of the federal government to see Sabah and Sarawak also together enjoying rapid development similar to that in other states,” he said when launching the Sabah-level ‘’Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia” (AKM) tour at the Sabah International Convention Centre here today. He said a federal-level committee was hence formed and chaired by himself, together with Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor and other partners to find solutions to these issues.

Also present were Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor; Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan and Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam; Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee; state Cabinet ministers and senior ministry officials.

The prime minister said the government would remain committed to realising the target of zero hardcore poverty in 10 localities in Sabah by the end of 2025 as outlined under the 12th Malaysia Plan through the holistic involvement of all relevant departments and agencies. He said the 10 localities identified for phase one of the Keluarga Malaysia (The Malaysian Family) hardcore poverty eradication (BMTKM) programme in Sabah are Tongod, Pitas, Kota Belud, Kota Marudu, Beluran, Nabawan, Tuaran, Sipitang, Beaufort and Ranau. According to him, the poverty eradication programme was previously implemented in silos, but the roles of all agencies involved were now combined, with the Prime Minister’s Department through the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) and the Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU) acting as the coordinator and facilitator.

Earlier, Hajiji expressed his gratitude to the PM for increasing the special grant to Sabah from RM26.

“EPU and ICU will be the coordinator that brings together all parties involved such as ministries, state governments, academicians, the private sector and civil society organisations to find the best method to eradicate hardcore poverty holistically based on locality,” he said. Ismail Sabri said the federal government has always played its role in fulfilling all matters listed in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), especially those related to Keluarga Malaysia in Sabah. In the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia, he said the government hoped that any outstanding issues or requests from Sabah could be considered in the best way possible through the federal-level committee set up to discuss the state’s demands on MA63. On another matter, he said the Trilateral Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines would be reviewed to strengthen defence and security in Sabah waters. Ismail Sabri also said residents of Pagalungan in Nabawan no longer need to travel more than 100 km to Keningau to get their border crossing pass as it is now available at the Pagalungan Immigration Control Post in the district. "All these are still ongoing via various platforms coordinated under the MA63 Special Council meeting," Hajiji added.

To ensure the “no wrong door policy”, renewal of Long-Term Visit Pass and Temporary Working Visit Pass can now be done at all immigration offices in the state, he said. On the issue of unreasonable increases in flight ticket prices during festival periods, he said discussions would be held with the parties involved so that Keluarga Malaysia would no longer have to worry when they want to return to their hometowns during the next festive season. — Bernama .
