What is ours MUST be ours

GPS won’t compromise on state’s rights over its O&G: Chief Minister MIRI: As long as Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) rules Sarawak, the state’s rights over its oil and gas resources will be upheld. GPS chairman Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said this can be achieved through the enforcement of the Oil Mining Ordinance (OMO) 1958. The chief minister said this is one sure way to enable Sarawak to benefit from its oil and gas resources which have been exploited by outsiders for decades. Abang Helmi (right) presents a token of appreciation to Abang Johari as other guests look on. “The ordinance gives Sarawak the power to regulate and issue licences for its upstream oil and gas industry.
