KOTA KINABALU: Nelson Angang, who was recently appointed as Beaufort Upko's acting division chief, is a capable leader and can help strengthen people's support towards the party, says party president Datuk Madius Tangau.

He was commenting on the departure of Kuala Penyu assemblyman Datuk Limus Jury from the party recently at an event in Kuala Penyu on Monday (June 29).

The event saw the opening of a new Padang Golf branch in Menumbok in the Beaufort division.

Madius said Nelson, who is also Upko secretary-general, has the backing of other Beaufort division leaders and committee members and that grassroots support towards Upko under the new leadership remains high.

Also present were Upko deputy president Datuk Donald Peter Mojuntin, vice-president Datuk Ewon Benedick, and vice-president cum youth chief Joseph Felix Saang, among others.

"I urge all Upko leaders and members to continue with our struggle," Madius said.

He said the party was ready for the possibility of a snap election and to ensure Kuala Penyu remains an Upko seat.

He also said that the state government under the leadership of Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal was still strong despite growing claims that the Sabah government could change and a return of Tan Sri Musa Aman as chief minister.
