It has just occured to me that the Malaysia Agreement is already Null and Void. No need to wait for the agreements to be fulfilled and no way to rectify it. can you refurbish a Null and Void agreement? You can't

What is missed is the statement in the Borneonisation. The words is "when Sabahan are qualified". How can Sabahan not qualified to lead their departments after more than 10 years? Ridiculous, isn't it?

Let alone 47 years. Borneonisation should have been carried out within 10 years. More than is just unreasonable. If this failed to be carried out, then the Agreements is null and void. Even though, Malaya were to honour the agreement by making all Federal Posts be given to Sabahans, now the agreement remains Null and Void.

So there is no point in putting the no cessation clause. since there is not Malaysia Agreement, Sabah can demand to be independent any time now, despite all attempts to fulfill in full the rest of the agreements. One option is to renegotiate a new Agreement but Agreement between subjugated member will never invalidate the agreement before Sabah was colonised by Malaya.

One of these days, a few disgruntled group from Sabah will bring this Malaysia Agreement to the world court and declare Sabah independent, like Kosovo. You can imagine what the decision that the World Court will take.

What is so important about Borneonisation? All the problems that Sabah face are due to the non-compliance of this part of the Malaysia Agreement. The corruption, illegal immigrants, destruction of fishing by bombings, crimes, drugs,gambling, human trafficking are due to enforcement departments that are not headed by Sabahan, but by Malayan who never consider Sabah as Malaysia.

"After 47 years of being part of Malaysia, Sabahans have not made any unnecessary demands such as wanting a local to be the yang diPertuan Agong or the Timbalan because this was not included in the agreement,".

"If Sabahans continue to be denied (the rights guaranteed by the 20 points), then how can the 1 Malaysia concept of 'People first, performance now', be achieved as the definition of the concept is to ensure that all Malaysians are provided with opportunities irrespective of region or state?". 

"In the context of Sabah, the rights of the people are contained in the 20 Point Agreement, which were agreed on before the formation of Malaysia, if the decision-Makers do not understand or purposely deny the contents of the agreement, then this issue will continue to be a source of conflict every time it is raised". He said the federal government should by now understand why people in Sabah keep demanding that Sabahan head its departments in the State.

The bitter pill for most Sabahans, he said, is that despite of the 20-Point Agreement clearly stating that the "Borneonisation" of federal departments and agencies in Sabah should be done as soon as possible, it had become a broken promise.

The Sabahan civil servants would be familiar with the local situation unlike officers who were transferred from other places.

The usual excuse that local officers were still inexperienced compared to their counterparts from Peninsular Malaysia was no longer acceptable.
