Putrajaya didn’t accept Sarawak’s loan offer for repairing schools

According to the sources, Putrajaya has reportedly turned down the offer from Sarawak government. The proposal was regarding the RM1 billion which was essential for repairing the neglected schools around the state, Kuching.

By the looks of it, the money was supposed to have been repaid right next to the existing debt of the state government. Michael Manyin, the Research Minister of Education & Science & Technology, said that the federal government of the country had requested the state government of the country to come up with an advanced payment to carry out with the repair works.

Nevertheless, after attending the after the award scholarship presentation at Reng College, Manyin said that it is highly likely not possible that they are going to use the advance payment to make the neglected schools better. According to Michael Manyin, Maszlee Malik the Education Minister of the country has reportedly agreed that they are going to utilize the RM1 billion by upgrading the neglected schools around the state. And this took place back in February 2019.

According to Manyin, the state government of Kuching was almost ready to set up a joint committee with the help of both Sarawak State Education Department as well as the education ministry for working on the project. But later it was revealed that Putrajaya had declined the agreement.

Manyin has openly declared that he is going to meet his Abang Johari Openg, the Chief Minister for discussing as to what they should do next. To this Manyin said that Teo Nie Ching, the Deputy Education Minister must not ask anything to the Sarawak government for releasing the funds which they could later use to repair the schools which are in pressing need of a facelift. Most importantly, this is because education comes directly under the control of the federal government. It is the duty of the government to release the money.
