KOTA KINABALU: 22 November 2012

Congratulation to Datuk Seri Panglima Lajim Ukin for making the government (Federal) to revisit their earlier decision on the Labuan-Menumbok bridge.

Another promise, another study ?

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin made a promise yesterday that decision will be made next year, after a comprehensive study, although one was already done by Universiti Malaya Sabah UMS costing RM5 million earlier.

The government appointed another consultant to conduct a study under the purview of the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry of which would only be ready next year.

My Say: RM5 Million is a lot of money, how much will the study cost this time around? Remember, this is taxpayers’ money
