KOTA KINABALU, March 18 -- The United Progressive Kinabalu Organisation (UPKO) has decided to postpone its rebranding launch and party anniversary celebration scheduled on Saturday (March 21), said party president, Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau.
He said the postponement was over concerns on the spread of COVID-19 which continues to escalate in the country including Sabah and UPKO will announce a new date soon.
“We understand and take a serious view on the health of UPKO members, therefore the decision was taken to ensure the disease did not spread to party members.
“At the same time, the postponement is also in line with the implementation of the Movement Control Order which came into effect starting today until March 31, encompassing public movements and gatherings including religious, sports, social and cultural activities,” he said in a statement today.
In this regard, Madius who is also Sabah Deputy Chief Minister advised all parties to be cautious and practising good hygiene as well as complying with instructions from the authorities to combat the spread of COVID-19 infection.
