KUCHING, Nov 20 — The state government has allocated RM30 million through the Sarawak Foundation to help National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) borrowers in the state to repay their loans.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg said those who had been assisted would have to pay back to the Sarawak Foundation based on a mechanism that would be determined later.
Speaking at the 100th-anniversary celebration of Sekolah Kebangsaan Abang Leman di Kabong near here today, he said the state government had decided to help the borrowers to prevent them from facing other issues such as travel ban.
