KENINGAU: Sook Sub-District, which has been approved by the State Cabinet as a full district, is  undergoing border-setting discussions with nearby districts such as Tongod, Nabawan, Keningau and Tambunan.

Sook Assemblyman Datuk Ellron Angin said this process is in the discussion phase and being refined as it entails boundary changes with neighbouring districts.

Ellron, who is also State Sports and Youth Minister, said his team is currently seeking approvals from the people’s representatives representing the districts involved in the demarcation.

“We are waiting for their letters. Essentially, they have agreed to and support Sook, which will expedite the process,” he said after inaugurating the breaking of fast with community leaders, teachers and pre-university students from various districts as well as attending the “Jasamu Dikenang En Pancratius Primus” ceremony at SMK Sook, on Tuesday.

Ellron stressed the importance of demarcating the district to ensure that all matters, applications and development projects could be implemented and avoid overlapping with other districts.

He said once the borders with nearby districts were finalised, the declaration and launch of Sook sub-district as a full district would be completed in the near future.

During the event, 15 recipients comprising underprivileged students received basic needs assistance worth RM150 per person.

Ellron also said such event should continue to be celebrated regardless of race, religion and ethnicity.

He said this is in line with the diversity of race, ancestry and communal beliefs in Sabah, in particular.

Also present at the event were District Education Officer Johari @ Jaibet Bin Sabin, SMK Sook Principal Pancratius Primus, PIBG Chairman Amzan Bin Jahidin, teachers, local leaders and students.
