WITH the reimposition of the movement control order (MCO) which impacts the economy though less severe so compared to MCO 1.0, we may be witnessing the beginning of a housing loans crisis in the making. This near-apocalyptic scenario may not sound palatable for banking stocks and could well be just hypothetical. But we need to ensure such a hypothetical scenario can be averted and also simultaneously prepare to mitigate the fallout should pre-emption be not possible.

ON 6 January 2021, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin planted a Merbau tree in the grounds of his official residence, Seri Perdana – the first of the 100 million trees the government plans to plant between 2020-2025. To further boost the 100 Million Tree-Planting Campaign 2020 – 2025, Sabah Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Noor, announced that the state government, on its part, will plant 36 million trees in Sabah.

1. Failure to discern truth from untruth. Prevarication [ meaning – a fabricated story or statement, especially one intended to deceive.] when told consistently, frequently over a long period can become accepted as truth even though it is otherwise. This pattern is often reinforced by people who have strong economic power to influence and lobby the right politicians. This is especially so when the listeners, like some Sabah leaders, don’t bother to discern truth from falsehood. In such situation, the economically strong will swallow the weak. This is the situation in the oil palm industry. Sabah has got a bad deal. Time to reset the truth.

DSP Hajiji’s 100-day message is both refreshing and innovative. Never has there been a CM who has put economic issues confronting Sabah so much in the forefront. He has placed on record in his first statement after assuming office that his top priority would be to revive Sabah’s economy.

BIOFERTILISERS are “natural fertilisers that contain living microorganisms (live biomass or dormant cells of effective microbial strains) which, when applied to seed, plant surfaces, or soil, colonises the rhizosphere (i.e., plant-root interface) and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant”.
