KOTA KINABALU: A group of concerned Sabahan youths has urged the authorities to investigate the Pan Borneo Highway project in Sabah and determine if a former Chief Minister and an executive of the Project Delivery Partner are linked to the cause of the delay apart from the mechanism of its payment.
Led by Adam Ahmad, the group went to the Malaysian Anti- Corruption Commission on Jalan Sulaman here last Tuesday, to lodge their report against Tan Sri Musa Aman and chief executive officer of Borneo Highway Project Delivery Partner Sdn Bhd (BHP) Shahelmey Yahya.
With Adam were Deiny bin Ulam, Datu Rizal bin Mohd Ibrahim and Mohammad Hussin bin Tiong who called for the investigation saying many people in Sabah are anxious to know the reason for the project delay.
“We are not asking for the project to be stopped. We want it to be expedited because for more than 50 years, the people of Sabah have been deprived of decent, good roads.
“The money, according to the Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, has been channelled to the project. So why was there a delay?
“Musa Aman and Shahelmey should be held accountable for the delay. They must answer to the people of Sabah,” he said.-SabahNewsToday
