United Borneo Front (UBF) celebrated Malaysia Day here on Sept 16 by carrying out a ritual on the “Oath Stone” at the compound of District Office.
UBF President Datuk Dr Jeffrey G. Kitingan headed the group involving Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Interior Zone, Bersama Party (formerly known as Parti Setia) head by Shuhaidin Langkap and their followers totalling 200.
They pledged loyalty to the promises engraved on the “Oath Stone” (Batu Sumpah).
Dr Jeffrey said such activity would be made an annual event so as to commemorate the anniversary of Sabah role in the formation of Malaysia in 1963. “The young generations who were not yet born during the formation of Malaysia should be given the opportunity and be informed on historical facts that involved Sabah in the formation.
“Not only that…the pledges of promises by the interior people as engraved on the ‘Oath Stone’ and the contents which are similar to the 20-Point Agreement must be respected,” he said.
After the official ritual, the group headed in a convoy to interior areas like visiting Sodomon’s house, here, Tambunan, Ranau, Telupid and Tongod.
