Without the oath stone, he said, the Federation of Malaysia would never be formed in 1963.
"So, I hope the next Malaysia Day will be held in Keningau and not in Kota Kinabalu," he said after an event at the Oath Stone in conjunction with Malaysia Day.
Dr Jeffrey, who is also Sabah State Reform Party (Star) chief, also urged Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman to "upgrade" the 20-Points Agreement, which is also engraved on the Oath Stone.
After the officiating at the programme, he took time to visit former Keningau MP, Datuk Seri Steven Robert Evans at the latter's house at Taman Kali. He hoped that the government would never forget Evans' contribution when he was the elected representative.
Evans was touched by the visit and said he is really thankful that community leaders still remember him.
He thanked the State and Federal leaders for their leadership and hoped that Malaysia continues to rise in the future.
Dr Jeffrey, on the other hand, urged the people never to forget past leaders and their contribution.
