Civil servants in Sabah urged to continue supporting KOPEKS – Ewon

KOTA KINABALU: All civil servants in Sabah are urged to continue supporting the Government Employees Cooperative of Sabah Berhad (KOPEKS) to ensure its continuous progress in business.


In making the call, Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Datuk Ewon Benedick said KOPEKS has greatly assisted public servants since its establishment in Sabah 61 years ago.

He said this includes financial assistance for building and repairing homes, purchasing furniture, financial aid for children’s education in schools and universities, vehicle repairs, and family healthcare.

“I was informed that KOPEKS will be celebrating its 61st anniversary on August 11, 2024.

“As one of the oldest cooperatives in Sabah, KOPEKS has certainly gone through many changes and challenges that have matured it. I hope KOPEKS will continue to progress in business,” he said.

Ewon said this in his speech at the KOPEKS Dividend Distribution Ceremony at Wisma Wanita, here today.

His speech was read by his political secretary Carl Moosom.

Ewon attributed the success and sustainability of the cooperative to the commitment and dedication of the Board Members and the cooperation of cooperative members.

He hoped that the management board of KOPEKS would wisely seek new sources of income because reliance on a single source of income would not help the cooperative to continue to grow and progress.

During the event, KOPEKS distributed cash dividends for the financial years 2021 and 2022, totaling RM1,055,446.
