No more PR1MA sick projects by 2024 — Minister

KOTA TINGGI, May 15 — The Ministry of Local Government Development (KPKT) will ensure there are no more PR1MA Corporation Malaysia (PR1MA) sick projects by next year.

“So far, not even half a year, eight sick projects have been completed and the keys handed over, three more are expected to be completed this year and the rest next year.

“By 2024, there will be no more sick projects, this is the commitment of the Malaysia Madani Unity Government, which always upholds the dignity and cares for the welfare and well-being of the people,” he said at the ceremony to hand over the keys and the Residensi Kota Tinggi 2023 Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration, earlier today.

Also present were Deputy Local Government Development Minister Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir, Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, and state Housing and Local Government Committee chairman Datuk Mohd Jafni Md Shukor.
