KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor looks forward to an increase in the Federal special grant so that more people-orientated initiatives can be implemented in Sabah.

Hajiji believed the Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysia Family) approach mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob himself could be the right formula to addressing legacy issues between Sabah and the Federation of Malaysia.

Speaking at the Jelajah Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia (JAKM) Sabah edition launched by the Prime Minister at the Sabah International Convention Centre here today, Hajiji said Sabah appreciated the support and strong cooperation from the Federal leadership.

"We are confident that the Malaysia Family approach can strengthen relations, forge understanding and enhance cooperation at all levels including between State and Federal," he said.

According to him, so much progress have been achieved with the latest being an understanding reached between the two parties on April 14 leading to the first step towards resolving the review of the special grant rate under Article 112D of the Federal 

Constitution.

"I would like to report to the Prime Minister today that we are returning the additional state revenue acquired from the increment of the special grant rate from RM26.7 million to RM125.6 million direct to the people," he said.
