KOTA KINABALU: Sepanggar is not left behind in terms of development, said Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

“Some people have said Sepanggar is a neglected area in Sabah, but this is not the case at all.

“There are several higher learning institutions (located here) such as Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Universiti Teknologi MARA and Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) as well as the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP), which are evidence of tangible progress,” he said.

Musa was addressing party supporters and folks under Sepanggar parliamentary constituency at SK Tebobon here during Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s visit here.

Musa said the party leadership have been in contact with local leaders to keep tabs on possible improvements that can be brought to the constituencies.

He added the state government had been helping the people to negotiate with Malaysian Islamic Religious Council (MUIS) to allocate the council’s five acres land for the people of Sepanggar.
