KOTA KINABALU, April 26, 2018: Voters have seen through Sabah Barisan Nasional’s manifesto as a another round of the “some old” promises that the coalition have failed to fulfill, Sabah Progressive Party president Datuk Yong Teck Lee said.

He said this was clearly demonstrated by a group of men at his favourite fish noodle soup coffee shop in Damai on Thursday.

“They were laughing as one of them was reading a newspaper report about the Sabah BN manifesto,” said Yong who is contesting the Kota Kinabalu Parliamentary seat.
