KOTA KINABALU: A federal minister will quit his Cabinet post if there are no significant improvements in Sabah’s power supply woes by year end.
Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Peter Chin Kui Fah said he would step down from his post if the System Average Interruption Duration Index (Saidi) was not reduced to 700 minutes per consumer annually in the state by the end of 2010.
Saidi is a measurement of the frequency of power supply disruptions.
He said Sabahans also had the right to demand the resignation of Sabah Electricty Sdn Bhd (SESB) managing director Baharin Din if the company failed to reach the target by then.
“The task ahead of us is not easy as the present Saidi level in Sabah is 2,870 minutes. But this is part of my ministry’s key performance index (KPI),” he said yesterday.
