Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR) Sabah president Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan said that he would be briefed on the operations of the ministry in Sabah so that planning can be simplified on a federal and state level, especially in the tourist industry of the state.

“The tourism sector is in dire straits now because of COVID-19 not only in Sabah but throughout Malaysia and we cannot expect when it will recover. Therefore, we have to come up with ways to make sure the tourism industry in the state doesn’t ‘die’.

“Thus throughout the Conditional Movement Control Order maybe we can reopen several sectors of the industry following the Ministry of Health’s standard operating procedures. For example, jungle trekking as well other activities that can be allowed,” he said.

Besides, Jeffrey said that the formation of the Ministry of Sabah and Sarawak 's Affairs would ensure that Sabah and Sarawak's constituted rights can be implemented as soon as possible.

“I have also suggested that the Sabah and Sarawak issues should be included in the PN charter and it has been agreed on so, don’t worry, I am still with my struggle for Sabah and Sarawak.  As a leader, that is what we should do,” he stressed.
