“So actually Sabah Government can be said was the first one to pass this law,” Jeffrey (left) said, in response to the suggestion by Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) President Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili (right) to enact the law within 60 days following the passing of the same Bill at Dewan Rakyat recently.
Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Government will be given the power to approve the issuance of the proposed foreigner card aimed at keeping tabs on their actual number in the State, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan.

He said the Federal Government is ready with the devolution of power to Sabah to address the  longstanding undocumented foreigners issue in the State.

“So this is a check and balance, whereby the Federal Government should only issue the foreigner card after getting the approval from the State Government,” he said, after launching the 12th edition of the Livestock, Aquaculture and Agriculture (LAA Sabah) Exhibition at the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC), Friday.
