What Has Become of Us, Sabahans?

By Former Petagas Assemblyman Datuk James Ligunjang


KOTA KINABALU: As Sabahans, we find ourselves caught in a cycle of discord, inconsistency, and indignity in our pursuit of justice and empowerment regarding our rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the Federal Constitution.

We have failed to come together effectively in the courts to champion our rights as stipulated in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the Federal Constitution.

The ongoing dispute between the State Attorney General’s Chambers of Sabah and the Sabah Law Society over a Judicial Review on Sabah’s 40% entitlement has created divisions that weaken our collective voice and diminish our influence.

Our entitlement to a fair 40% revenue-sharing allocation, a right guaranteed by both the Federal Constitution and the Malaysia Agreement 1963, should not be viewed as a mere aspiration, but as a fundamental entitlement that must be vigorously defended.

It is imperative for us, as Sabahans, to unite, stand by our principles, and assert our demands for the advancement and prosperity of our beloved state.
