Sabah won’t back down in talks over oil rights, says minister


He will bang tables? Okay….. if that floats your boat.

Dateline 2022-03-21, FMT:

Sabah local government and housing minister Masidi Manjun has said he would not back down on the issue of the state’s rights, including on oil and gas, in its negotiations with the federal government and Petronas.

Masidi, who is the head of the state’s negotiation team, said the terms in the talks were in line with the aspirations of the people.

“I’ll walk out of the negotiation room and bang tables if I am not satisfied,” he said in reply to a supplementary question from Shafie Apdal (Warisan-Senallang) at the state assembly today.
