KOTA KINABALU: Sabah's water supply issue is set to be resolved with the Federal Government's commitment to assist, according to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Haji Noor.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced the assistance, which is welcomed by the State Government.

The Chief Minister stated that the State Government is already implementing its own plan to address the water woes and with the Federal Government's help, the problem can be resolved quickly.

"The government views the water supply problem in Sabah seriously. We will iron out all the issues during the meeting with the Prime Minister in order to get a lasting solution," said Hajiji.

Meanwhile, he also clarified that the Federal Government is not taking over the state water supply management.

"What the Prime Minister meant was that the Federal Government is going to assist in the management of the problem by providing more substantial funding similar to the Kelantan water issue," he said.

Sabah's water supply issue has been a long-standing problem and the State Government's efforts have not been enough to resolve it. With the Federal Government's assistance, Sabahans can hope for a fast and permanent solution to their water woes.

"The State Government is in the midst of implementing our own plan to address the water woes and with the Federal coming in to provide assistance we believe the problem can be resolved quickly," he asserted.
