To fulfill this commitment, he said various educational assistance programs have been implemented to alleviate the financial burden faced by the poor and B40 groups.

The Chief Minister highlighted several of these assistance programs, including the One-Off Cash Assistance for IPT Registration (BUDI), Computer Aid (BAIK), PIBG Aid (BAGUS), Examination Cash Assistance (BAKTI), Sabah Education Excellence Award (AKSA), and Sabah School Aid (BISBAH).

During the launch of the WEHELP Program by the Sabah State Education Department, as well as the distribution of eyeglasses, school bags, and health checks at SMK Badin Tuaran, Hajiji expressed these views.

The Chief Minister’s speech was delivered by Datuk Jasnih Daya, the Executive Chairman of Innoprise Corporation Sdn Bhd.

Furthermore, Hajiji said that the state government has increased the State Government Scholarship Fund from RM50 million to RM101 million per year.

This increase aims to provide more opportunities for deserving students in Sabah to pursue higher education through scholarships, he added.
