"Me and many of my friends have weighed the pros and cons between Sabah-based political party and Malaya-based political party for the past few months. And we have found out that only a Sabah-based political party could serve Sabah better," said Samson Aaron Malinggang when he submitted dozens of membership application forms to SAPP candidate for N.19 Kapayan State constituency, Chong Pit Fah, at Kampung Kobusak, here.

Samson said a Sabah Government headed by Sabah-based political party with full autonomy could administer Sabah smoothly minus Kuala Lumpur interferences.

He said Sabah is rich with natural resources such as petroleum and gas but ended up poor due to the draining out of its wealth to Malaya.

He added that what makes matter worst was the high rate of jobless among youths in which Sabah registered the highest in Malaysia.

"Not only jobs are scarce but we, the local youths have to compete with foreigners," he said blaming Kuala Lumpur controlled Barisan Nasional Government for causing hardship to Sabah.

He said Kuala Lumpur meddling in Sabah's administration and their insincerity to address the perennial illegal immigrants problem has led Sabah to her lowest.

Samson said he and his friends support SAPP struggle for autonomy because only a Sabah Government with autonomy able to run the State smoothly.

Meanwhile, Pit Fah said SAPP was glad with the changes of the young voters' mindset.

He said the support was a manifestation that the young generation has understood the need for an autonomous Sabah Government.

He added that a SAPP Sabah Government with its autonomy would definitely able to bring about the needed changes in all aspects.
