Sad Future

“If the NRD or government has no satisfactory answer, I strongly urge Upko to seriously review its position in the BN because an identification document is a very important matter as it shows their sense of belonging.” Datuk Wilfred Bumburing Daily Express and Star

I’ve lost track on how many articles I’ve written in the Daily Express Forum regarding the issuance of fake Malaysian I/C to foreigners. This issue has been a thorn in the flesh for every Malaysian Sabahan for almost 3 decade. The leaders of some political parties have repeatedly voiced their displeasure regarding this issue but unfortunately their concerned falls on deaf ears of the federal government. To make matter worst which hurt the feelings of the people in Sabah, some clowns from the cabinet got the guts to make statements such as  “..the PATI does not pose any problems to Sabah people” and “…there is no such thing as Project I/C”.

I can vividly remember so clearly that while I was once posted to a bank branch in Tenom a few years back, I came across a foreigner with a passport who came to open an account but I rejected it due to some technicality in the document. The very next day, this very same man came again to open an account but this time with a Malaysian I/C! I sarcastically asked him whether the I/C was acquired through the Project I/C. Surprisingly he admitted without any sense of fear. (Did I approve the application..NO!)

So each time when some leaders from the central government made comments such as the above, my first reaction would be “F**k you all”. It’s not that I like to use the word F**k on leaders but after 3 decade of voicing out our concern, they do nothing but keep hurting the people with their remarks.

Coming back to the statement by Datuk Wilfred Bumburing, as a anakdesa of Sabah, I fully support that UPKO should take a concrete steps and action to overcome this problem once and for all. He rightfully and I wholeheartedly agree when he said that “…I strongly urge Upko to seriously review its position in the BN..”. Not that I being an anti-government but we need to be heard. If the present government do not  care nor listen to the plight of the people regarding the Project I/C, why then do we need to carry on supporting them. May as well get a new government and cross our fingers that they will look and resolve the matter. If they too do not act on it as what the present government is doing then show them the exit door!

Now the question arise when Datuk Wilfred Bumburing said “….who believes that a Royal Commission of Inquiry should be set up to investigate NRD’s alleged issuance of ICs to foreigners.”  when YB Lim Kiat Siang  put up a motion for a RCI to be set up to solve the issue, where were all the UPKO’s representatives?
