10 JANUARY, 2016 — PENAMPANG: United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (Upko) is standing firm on its recommendation that the Government recall and reissue all MyKads issued in Sabah.

Its acting president Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau said as far as UPKO was concerned, its proposal was very clear and it had been made known to the public.

“We will continue to say that this is the way to go (recalling and reissuing new MyKad) as it is the way to move forward for the issue. And we are only waiting for the Barisan Nasional (BN) Sabah liaison committee to meet and discuss the proposal,” he said.

Tangau said this when met by reporters after visiting the soon-to-be completed RM500mil International Technology and Commercial Centre here yesterday. Read more

“We must be transparent over this monstrous issues that has bedevilled the people of Sabah for decades,” said Minister in the Prime Minister’s department Tan Sri Joseph Kurup when contacted by Malay Mail Online. Read more
