KOTA KINABALU: Chairman of Koperasi Serbaguna Sanya Berhad (Kosan) Datuk Ellron Angin has denied allegations by Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) that he issued a statement saying that the land development of Wisma Kosan in Likas was approved during Kosan's 33rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) in August 2016.


Earlier, Warisan Kota Kinabalu branch chief Samuel Wong claimed Ellron was misled by certain people in the organisation which made him issue a misleading statement regarding the 2016 meeting.


In a statement, Ellron said the land development of Wisma Kosan was instead tabled and approved by Kosan members in the 34th AGM which was held on 19 August 2017.


He added that he also issued a media statement on August 1 to explain the matter.


"My media statement was also reported by the Daily Express under an article entitled "Kosan land for mixed development" dated Aug 2, 2021.


"Therefore, Samuel Wong's statement that I 'lied' or was 'deceived' by certain board members is not true at all.


"Therefore, I advise Samuel Wong to check and confirm my media statement before making any statement," said Ellron, who is also the Minister of Rural Development.
