SANDAKAN (Bernama) – The Sabah state government will repair 30 fishermen houses in Nunuyan Island to ensure comfort for the occupants.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman announced this at the handing over of Ramadan aid to 1,385 recipients from the island and the surrounding area yesterday.
He said repair works on other houses in the island would only be implemented once the works on the 30 fishermen houses were completed.
“This is our way to help solving people’s problems…this is also part of the efforts undertaken by the Barisan Nasional-led government which proves its concern for the people,” he said.
Musa said efforts to connect water pipes and electric supply to the island would also be expedited to meet the basic needs of the community.
The Nunuyan Island is about 20-minute boat ride away from Sandakan town and has 1,300 residents with 164 houses.
