KOTA KINABALU : Angkatan Perubahan Sabah (APS) Chairman, Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing clarified that his action in leaving BN-UPKO is not prompted any kind of personal agenda as alleged by certain quarters.
He also said that the action by certain Sabah State Barisan Nasional leaders in in their usage of derogatory names when referring to himself and Lajim smack of arrogance on their part and clearly showed their lack of professionalism as leaders of political party let alone leader of the State administration.
Bumburing said: “The reason behind my leaving BN and UPKO is not founded on personal agenda as alleged by certain State Barisan Nasional leaders. The agenda that we are pursuing are agendas that have been drawn by the people at large and affect the very texture of our society especially those in the rural areas and the bumiputras.
"Instead of starting their usual name-calling using derogatory words, the State Barisan Nasional leaders should examine how they addressed the very core issues that affect the people at large especially the natives and other bumiputras.
"Our agendas, the call for the formation of a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate the influx of illegal immigrants and the extraordinary population increase in Sabah over the last 4 decades; equality for Sabah within the Federation instead of being label as the poorest State in the country; land for the landless and the Native Customary Rights especially natives who are trapped in areas designated under FMUs; equal opportunities in all fields, education, job opportunities and promotion in the civil service, for every citizen regardless of race, culture and religion; the call for an increase in petroleum royalty and respecting Sabah’s right as a sovereign state within the federation.
"These are issues affecting Sabah and its people and which have never been positively addressed by the Barisan Nasional Government. The government must take immediate positive step to address the issues raised by us in APS instead of sweeping them under the carpet. Stop the name calling and start taking positive action.
“We are also very interested to follow up the reports revealed by an online blog http://www.sarawakreport which refers to certain Sabah State leaders. We will carry our own study and make the necessary report to the relevant authorities as soon as we are ready.”
