The federal government has allocated more than RM1 billion for various home ministry projects for agencies and departments across Sabah.


Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said the government had allocated RM887.66 million for the development projects to provide better infrastructure to the ministry’s staff in Sabah.

He said among the projects involved were the construction of the Kota Kinabalu district police headquarters (IPD), construction of the housing and administration complex for the General Operations Force’s 20th Battalion in Beluran, construction of the Lahad Datu Prison, upgrading work of the Sabah People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) training centre and the construction of the Tawau National Registration Department.

“In addition, the government has also allocated RM219 million to enhance the operational capacity of the Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) and the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).”

He said this in his speech at a get-together with the ministry’s staff, agencies and departments in conjunction with his working visit to Sabah today.

Muhyiddin said among the development projects to be implemented for the ESSCom and MMEA were the construction of a maritime base in Semporna, construction of the forward operating base in Mabul Island, and the construction of floating jetties in Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan and Tawau.

“I hope all the approved projects can be implemented within the stipulated time frame and comply with the requirements so that they can carry out their responsibilities more effectively.”

He said despite the financial constraints, the government would provide appropriate allocation to all parties, particularly to ensure the security and well-being of the people of Sabah.

Muhyiddin said his ministry would also continue to apply for the development allocation for the 4th Rolling Plan next year, with the main focus being on the renovation and upgrading works of the quarters of its agencies and departments.
