‘BN can fix MyKad issue’
KOTA KINABALU: The state Barisan Nasional (BN) can resolve the issue of MyKad given to dubious citizens, said Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.
He said state BN leaders should act on calls for new Malaysian identity cards to be re-issued, adding that there was no point in blaming others.
Shafie was responding to United Pasokmomogun KadazanDusun Murut Organisation president Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau’s speech on Saturday calling for the re-issuance of MyKads in Sabah, in line with the findings of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on illegal immigrants.
Speaking during his walkabout at the Donggonggon town Sunday market in Penampang, he said the present leaders in power can resolve the problem.
Wilfred, who is also Science, Technology and Innovation minister, had shown a video of an interview with former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad allegedly admitting giving citizenship to illegal immigrants in Sabah.
The Semporna MP was accompanied by Warisan deputy president Darrel Leiking, who is Penampang MP, and Likas assemblyman Junz Wong during his walkabout.
“BN is in power. “If they think it is (wrong), they can rectify it. They have the power and authority,” Shafie said.
