KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal has directed the Education and Innovation Ministry to come up with a budget that will alleviate Parent-Teacher Associations (PIBGs) from the responsibility of providing infrastructure at schools.
“I know sometimes schools do not have enough money. That is why the PIBGs have sponsored a lot. PIBGs buy computers, PIBGs also buy chairs,” he noted.
“(Sabah Education and Innovation minister) Datuk Dr. Yusof, make provision for a budget. I do not want schools in Sabah, where the PIBG is burdened with the provision of infrastructure. We want to make sure of that.
“I do not want millions to be in my bank account. I want the Sabah revenue be given to the people, children of Sabah. That is my intention. That is my sincere intention. That is our intention. Make sure the preparation of the education sector becomes a priority that is far more important among the other ministries,” he urged.
