Shafie Apdal, at a ceramah in Pasir Gudang, said that Sabah has so many natural resources but Sabahans are forced to look for jobs in Peninsular Malaysia.

 PASIR GUDANG: Please come home to vote, that's the appeal of Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal to the sizeable population of Sabahans in Peninsular Malaysia.
The Parti Warisan Sabah president said places like Pasir Gudang in Johor, Shah Alam in Selangor and also Penang, have a large number Sabahans.
"I urge all of you who are voters in Sabah to return home and let your vote make a difference in the future Sabah," he said during a ceramah at Pangsapuri Masai in Pasir Gudang on Wednesday night (April 4) that was attended by almost 400 people, mostly Sabahans. 
"If you are no longer voting in Sabah, it's OK, but make sure you inform all your relatives and friends in Sabah to vote for Warisan," he said.

He pledged to create job opportunities for Sabahans if the Opposition wrests control of the state government from Barisan Nasional.

He said Sabah was a state rich in oil and gas, timber and tin, but all this wealth was not felt by its people.

"Our state has so many natural resources, but our people can't find enough jobs in Sabah, and are forced to travel to Peninsular Malaysia in search of a job.

"The state and a few people are rich, while Sabah citizens are poor and neglected," he said.

He added that he will ensure factories and plants (to process) the natural resources will be set up in the state, thus creating jobs for Sabahans.
