KOTA KINABALU, April 18 (Bernama) — Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Youth, in welcoming the 1Malaysia concept of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, said it was hoped that it would revisit the concept and spirit of the establishment of Malaysia in 1963.
PBS Youth chief Datuk Jahid Jahim said among the matters agreed to at that time was the security of Sabah.
However, he said, security problems have touched on the feelings of the people, particularly such matters as the influx of illegal immigrants, citizenship, forged documents and the lack of uniformity in the prices of essential goods nationwide.
“It is the aspiration of the people of Sabah, especially the young generation, that there be serious, concrete and consistent action to resolve these problems,” he told Bernama.
Jahid, who is state assistant minister of youth and sports, appealed to the federal government to redouble efforts to resolve the problem of illegal immigrants in Sabah.
“When this happens, the 1Malaysia concept will really take root in the hearts of the people of Sabah, and Malaysia will become a nation full of hope for the future generations,” he said.
