Published on: Friday, January 12, 2018

Sandakan: Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman said the allocation for road construction in Rancangan Sungai Luboh, Mile 12, here, is not provided by the State Government, but under the Regional and Rural Development Ministry.

The application for an allocation, he said, was made by Libaran MP Datuk Juslie Ajirol to the previous Regional and Rural Development Minister.

However, it was only approved by the present Minister, said Musa who is also Sungai Sibuga assemblyman.

"The Government is committed on constructing a road in Rancangan Sungai Luboh," he said at a meet-the-leader event at Rancangan Sungai Luboh hall, here, Thursday.

"The project will also be implemented as soon as the allocation is received."

At the event, Musa presented 175 school bags to school children and six wheelchairs to elderlies and people with disability in the area.

Also present were Juslie, Gum-Gum assemblyman Datuk Zakaria Edris, Libaran Umno Wanita Chief Datuk Armani Mahiruddin and Libaran Umno Youth Chief Rizan Aziz.

Earlier, Musa visited Sungai Luboh Voting Centre (PDM), and he was briefed on its preparation to face the impending general election.

Musa said the 7km road construction from Kuala Gum-Gum to Tanjung Semawang which is also in Libaran is to help the people.

"The government will continue to assist the people, including in Libaran so that their wellbeing will be well taken care of," he said.

Musa also visited PDM Fajar in his own constituency where he presented 350 school bags and 14 wheelchairs, at Bandar Perdana, here.

On hand were Karamunting assemblyman Datuk Charles O Pang and local leaders.

Musa said, the government has the best direction as compared to "those who are disappointed and do not have a clear policy or direction."

He was also pleased with the preparation made by all PDMs, especially in Libaran and Sungai Sibuga.

"This shows that these PDMs are ready to face the coming election.

"Victory can be achieved with good cooperation from all quarters.

As such, all party members and machinery should remain united and preserve the existing unity," he said. - Mardinah Jikur
