KOTA KINABALU: The State Government fully supported the King’s decision to declare an emergency for Bugaya, as provided for under Article 150 of the Federal Constitution, putting on hold the impending by-election there. Chief Minister Datuk Seri Haji Hajiji Haji Noor described it as a wise decision considering the Covid-19 pandemic, which continues to be a threat to the people’s health in Sabah. We want to stop this Covid-19 spread, to flatten the curve and most importantly to save lives, he added.
