Aki Momogun: UPKO to quit BN too???

Reading comments in the local newspapers from senior leaders of UPKO lately made me conclude that this Sabah-based Barisan Nasional’s component member might follow suit Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) led by Datuk Yong Teck Lee to pull out from the national coalition.
UPKO leaders had openly said that the party led by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok will have to review its position in the BN Government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
The latest is from UPKO Deptuy President Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Mojilip Bumburing, who was commenting on a Sino-Kadazan woman from Penampanag who lost her MyKad and was replaced by the National Registration Department with one that made here just a Permanent Resident.
“What had happened to the 78-year-old Yong Lee Hua @ Piang Lin was simply outrageous and warrant UPKO seriously reviewing its position in BN,” Bumburing the BN member of Parliament for Tamparuli.
Meanwhile, commenting on the same issue, UPKO Secretary-General Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau said if the party’s objectives were not `heard’ by BN then the party could review its position in the coalition.
“UPKO members has the right to decide its position in Barisan Nasional,” he said. Tangau is the former MP for Tuaran.
My Say:
Compared to SAPP, UPKO has four Members of Parliament – Dompok (Penampang), Bumbiring (Tuaran), Datuk Dr Marcus Mojigoh (Putatan) and Datuk Saringan Gubat (Ranau). SAPP has two – Datuk Eric Majimbun (Sepanggar) and Datuk Dr Chua Soon Bui (Tawau).
Yong and Dompok has one thing in common – both were founder members of Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) and ditched the party to form their own political parties in 1994. SAPP had quit BN on Sept 17, 2008.

  1. As a Ranau's villager who had supported UPKO, for the interest and "DIGNITY" & FUTURE of Sabahan -UPKO, please release yourself from being stupid UMNO's/BN's dog!!! This UMNO/BN might gave you(UPKO) pedigree to eat but please realise that you(UPKO) are nowhere but belong to your own people – The people who is still in poor and very very lagging behind of everything. Please see your own people as yourself..and realize that you are nothing without them and their vote… We bless your action to quit and release yourself from UMNO's/BN's conquer.. Pleaase stick to the agenda of safeguarding your own people/voters rather than safeguarding your personal interest.. "kapal kau karam, kita pakai poring untuk bangkal"
