TAWAU: The ban on two of PKR vice presidents, Nurul Izzah, and Tian Chua, to enter Sabah should become a lesson to every citizen in the country not to be in cahoot with intruders who threaten the state’s sovereignty.
Sabah Minister of Youth and Sports cum Apas Assemblyperson, Datuk Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan, said the ban is hopefully will raise awareness on everyone to respect the sensitivity of the people in the state.
“Meeting with those who admit as the Sulu sultanate who once intrude Sabah is unforgivable for the people of Sabah and the act is seen more as an effort to free Anwar rather than for the country’s sovereignty,” he said.
He was speaking to the media after launching the 1Azam Course here, yesterday, as a response on the special motion to bar Nurul Izzah and Tian Chua from entering the state effective immediately.
Previously, 47 Sabah DUN members supported the motion under the Permanent Regulation 31(3), with other members did not object the move, including Sabah PKR leaders who chose to remain neutral.
The motion was proposed by the Deputy Chief Minister cum Minister of Industrial Development, Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah, where he also suggested for investigation to be carried out on both of the leaders.
Nurul Izzah raised the anger of Malaysians especially the people of Sabah, after Jacel uploaded four photos in 9 November ago in her Facebook account, showing her meeting with the oldest daughter of Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Jacel is the daughter of Jamalul Kiram III, who ordered the assault in Lahad Datu, Sabah, two year ago where several of the country’s security personnel died wounded during the attack at Kg. Simunul water villages.
Meanwhile, in his comment on the programme, Tawfiq said the 1AZAM Course will give the youth in the state the opportunity to increase their revenues and escape from poverty. –SayangSabah
