Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman today announced a minor Cabinet reshuffle which, among others, saw Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah replaced as a deputy chief minister by Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Peter Pang En Yin @Peter Pan but retained as a minister.
Tan, former deputy president of the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) which pulled out of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition in September last year, was partyless for almost nine months until he joined Gerakan, a peninsula-based BN component, recently.
Musa said Tan, who had held the infrastructure development portfolio, would now be minister of industrial development, taking over from Datuk Ewon Ebin who has been appointed rural development minister.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan, who had held the rural development portfolio, has been appointed infrastructure development minister, Musa told reporters after chairing a meeting of the State Cabinet, here.
Musa also announced the appointment of Merotai state assemblyman Pang Yuk Ming as assistant minister of infrastructure development, replacing Datuk Michael Asang who has been appointed assistant minister of industrial development.
Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid, who was assistant minister of industrial development, has been appointed assistant minister of resource development and information technology, taking over from Donald Peter Mojuntin who has been appointed assistant minister of finance.
The portfolios of the other ministers and assistant ministers remain unchanged.
AK …Nice move Musa, Koh Sukun must having his brains out now!

No point being called a leader and not making an impact. I hope he really helps the poor in Neverland
