Bumburing returns to UPKO

TUARAN: Former UPKO Deputy President Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing, along with several other former members from Keningau, Tambunan, Tamparuli, Kiulu, Kota Belud, and Kuala Penyu, has returned to the fold of the United Progressive Kinabalu Organization (UPKO).

This re-entry was made during the Pisompuruan gathering with UPKO leaders here today.

Bumburing said that he made this decision after witnessing UPKO’s struggle to defend the rights and interests of the people of Sabah, as well as the efforts made by UPKO President Datuk Ewon Benedick since assuming leadership of the party.

“Ewon and UPKO have been at the forefront in fighting for Sabah’s 40 percent rights as stated in the Federal Constitution. When he invited me to a roundtable discussion on this matter, I felt compelled to actively contribute and support his leadership,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ewon welcomed Bumburing’s “return” and the return of other members to UPKO after being outside the party for some time.

“In last year’s convention, I extended an open invitation to the founders of this party and former members to return to the party and join me in continuing the struggle. I am proud and warmly welcome Datuk Bumburing’s rejoining of UPKO today,” he said.

Also present were Tuaran Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau, President of the Advisory Council of UPKO Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, UPKO Secretary-General Datuk Nelson Angang, Chairman of the Advisory Council, and members of the Advisory Council of UPKO Datuk Christine Vanhouten.
