State Reform Party (STAR) Sabah chairman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan stands by his conviction that Sabah was cheated into becoming the 12th unitary state in Malaysia.
In response to the contention by Kota Belud member of parliament Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan who argued that Sabah was one of the states of Malaysia from the beginning, Jeffrey told a meeting of STAR’s Political Bureau here yesterday that there are more than sufficient evidences to show that originally, Sabah had no intention of becoming a unitary state of the new Federation.
“Even simple facts of local history will support this, such as the fact of the name of our Head of State was ‘Yang Di Pertua Negara’ in line with the promised made in Point 18 of the 20 Point Agreement,” he said.
“The intended form of the federation from the beginning, as signed by the United Kingdom, North Borneo, Sarawak, Singapore and Malaya, was for the four entities to remain as sovereign entities.”
One of Malaysia’s state successfully manage its natural resources to gain foreign exchange.The beauty of tourism in Sabah admirable.”That was my first impression on arrival at Kinabalu International Airport. The city has a population of about two thousand people in 2008 was able to embrace the foreign tourists, two million more. They come to enjoy the panoramic beauty of nature.
Atmosphere Kota Kinabalu itself looks clean with a beautiful city park.The traffic was too orderly, not jammed, and invisible street hawkers (street vendors) like in Indonesia.Special street vendors, government localize along the Kota Kinabalu Gaya Street in midtown.
Sabah’s natural attractions in the majority relies does have a natural tourist panorama sold.Start the panorama of nature such as protected forests of Mount Kinabalu National Park, coastal and marine tourism in Manukan and Sipadan Island.”Leading our tour is selling natural scenery,” said David Michael, from the STB.
