PAPAR: The upgrading and reconstruction works of dilapidated schools are in the tender process before they go to the Federal Procurement Board.

Sabah Development Office (SDO) head, Dato Ruji Ubi said the Sabah Public Works Department (PWD) would oversee the upgrading works while SDO, which is under the Implementation and Coordination Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department, sits as one of the members of the Procurement Board.

He said the any progress made would be put forward to the Sabah State Action Council Meeting by PWD. “It is supposed to be held tomorrow (Monday) but due to some circumstances, the meeting has been postponed,” disclosed Ruji.

According to him, the upgrading project covers 30 impoverished primary and secondary schools in various districts. “The needy schools were selected by the Ministry of Education based on the state of their structures.

“The total costs is about RM2 to RM3 million depending on the buildings; some will have one building replaced, some will have two,” said Ruji, adding that the reconstruction will be using Industrialised Building System (IBS) which he claimed to be faster and more cost effective.

He also said that there will be only new buildings with no new facilities.

Some of the buildings will be torn down and replaced with new one; some will not be torn down but a new building will be built at any available area within the school grounds, he told reporters during Sabah Federal Development Office Aidilftri celebration with Cure & Care Rehabilitation Centre (CCRC) and Cure & Care (C&C) 1Malaysia Clinic Papar here yesterday.

In his speech, Ruji expressed hope that the inmates would be strong enough to let go of their past and come clean.

“In order to change and move forward, I advise each one of you to leave your hometown since the probability to relapse is very high if you return home to where you started,” he told the recovering drug addicts.

Also present were Bakri Bibi, Director of National Anti-drugs Agency (AADK) and Tugiman Kayun, Director of CCRC and C&C 1Malaysia Clinic Papar.
