Sultan Ibrahim warns Johor may secede from Malaysia if side-lined by federal government

He urged the Federal Government to properly maintain the federal buildings in Johor like Sultanah Aminah Hospital, Sultan Ismail Hospital and the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex.

“Look at the condition of federal roads like Jalan Johor Baru-Mersing, which is damaged and full of potholes. This could endanger road users.

“I urge the federal government to fulfil the promise to upgrade the North-South Expressway to six lanes and the Senai Desaru Expressway to four lanes.

Bernama quoted Sultan Ibrahim also saying that since 2019, the amount of investments into Johor has declined and it was not because of Covid-19, but because of envy towards the state.

“This happens not because of Covid-19, but because of the virus of envy and jealousy towards Johor.

“There are investors who want to develop a solar energy field in Pengerang, but the federal government said there is no quota for it.

“There are investors who want to develop an energy centre and a deep sea port in Muar but there are ‘monkeys’ who are opposed to the project, even though it would provide jobs to the locals,” said the ruler.
