PUTRAJAYA – Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem today met with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak here to discuss matters pertaining to the state of Sarawak.
The Sarawak Chief Minister’s official vehicle was seen entering the Bangunan Perdana Putra, here at 4 pm and leaving two hours later.
A group of journalists were waiting outside the perimeter fence of the building to get a statement from Adenan, but their effort was in vain as the vehicle carrying Adenan did not stop despite being surrounded.
Last Saturday, Adenan was reported as saying that he would meet Najib to resolve the matter on the devolution of authority to the Sarawak state government.
Adenan said Sarawak wanted the power of administration, which it had previously before it was taken over by the federal government, to be returned as it was important for the development of the state especially for the rural dwellers.
He said he would also raise the matter again on increasing the oil royalty to Sarawak as the rate of five per cent currently was too small. – BERNAMA
