KOTA KINABALU: Pakatan Harapan has taken a leaf out of the Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties’ book for its manifesto on Sabah rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary-general Datuk Johnny Mositun said BN component parties had been fighting for the rights of Sabah all this while and their struggle was being given attention under the government, led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Mositun said the party’s struggle had also garnered support from Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman, who voiced the needs of Sabahans to Najib.
“(Pakatan) is only (making noise) about Sabah’s rights because it wants to win the election. (They raise the issue every time) during the election (season), but nothing has been fulfilled.
“But (PBS) is consistent in fighting for Sabah’s rights and the current government, both at the Federal and state levels, are paying attention to the issue.
“We are confident there will be major changes based on the prime minister’s promises to return Sabah’s rights after studying the details, which will take some time,” he said.
