KOTA KINABALU: The Ministry of Youth and Sports through the Sabah State Sports Board will focus on upgrading the facilities in Keningau Sports Complex to meet the needs of the locals, including Apin-Apin Area.
However, its minister Phoong Jin Zhe said that there is no plan to build a sports complex in Apin-Apin area at the moment.
“The Ministry of Youth and Sports is fully aware of the people’s need and aspiration to have a sports complex in every district.
“But this moment, only 16 out of 27 districts in the state have a sports complex,” he said in response to Bingkor Assemblyman Robert Tawik’s question at the State Legislative Assembly on Monday.
Robert wanted to know whether the state government plan to develop Apin-Apin Mini Sports Complex to accommodate facilities for schools in that area.
Phoong said, the ministry will refine all proposals and suggestions made for the purpose of the 12th Malaysia Plan, depending on the government’s financial ability.
