KOTA KINABALU: Pertubuhan Kinabalu Bersatu (PKB), a political vehicle of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), that has been active in recruiting Sabahans in the peninsula will start accepting members in Sabah, especially the west coast, now that party chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad finally agreed to bring PPBM to Sabah.

“Since the establishment of PKB in October, last year, we have registered 6,000 Sabahans as PKB members in the peninsula while 2,600 became PPBM members.

“In Sabah, we have 1,500 PKB members in Kudat and 1,000 in Keningau where they will be registered as PPBM members.

In addition, PKB will also recruit new members in districts situated in the West Coast,” PKB Chairman Adzmi KK (pic) said, adding that PKB has 1,000 members in Kuching, Sarawak. 

Adzmi said PKB would continue to look after the welfare of Sabahans residing and working in the peninsula as well as its members in Kudat and Keningau, as of now.

It is confident of registering about 40,000 new members by year end as its new target.

He said PKB fully supports Friday’s announcement by Dr Mahathir and would render full assistance to ensure smooth implementation of opening the Sabah chapter of PPBM, popularly known as Bersatu.

He said the decision followed high demand of people in Sabah, especially politicians and elected people representatives to join PPBM.

“Friday’s announcement by Dr Mahathir fulfils the political needs and wishes of many to join the party. 

“We also acknowledge that among the reasons is to strengthen the Warisan-led State Government headed by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal and not opposing it (Warisan).

“This is also in line with PKB that urges members to always give solid support to Warisan led by Shafie as well as Pakatan Harapan (PH) in Sabah,” Adzmi said. - Hayati Dzulkifli
