KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor reminded  heads of Government departments and agencies to continue maintaining intergrity and  accountability as well as good governance in discharging duties entrusted to them. 

This is to ensure every development project, particularly those under the Hala Tuju Sabah  Maju Jaya development plan progress and are implemented well, he said.
