This is what I know (of course only what I actually can tell here) about this story,
Sultan Ibrahim said he did not see why Putrajaya would not be willing to give Johor a chance to be an eco-friendly producer of electricity.
Well, this project is actually an initiative of a guy from my hometown Kluang.
He migrated a long time ago and became rich, but now, out of his love for Johor, has decided to give something back to it.
I have checked his story and it's quite genuine.
The Sultan actually has no real shares in the project except for the land to be used for it being leased by the Ruler to the Kluang guy.
I was told that Sultan Ibrahim has been supportive of the initiative from the start, thus the name of the project.
The problem actually started when the proposal for the project was brought to Putrajaya for approval.
There, the Kluang guy was offered to do the project somewhere in Perak instead of Johor.
The Kluang guy refused the offer, saying that he initiated the project specifically for his home state and furthermore, the area chosen for it was most suitable for it.
He, nonetheless, offered to build a mosque or some other social welfare projects in the area in Perak.
That's when the project stalled. No federal approval for it.
I was reliably informed that PM Muhyiddin, who is a Johorean himself, will call for a meeting on the matter as soon as he gets back from Saudi Arabia.
Well, in case he's reading this, Muhyiddin should ask his people about the matter of RM4 million related to the approval of the project.
That should get some people's armpits sweating.
Sigh. These people really need to stop such nonsense.
I hope this project will proceed.
It's after all good for the environment. Particularly Johor's environment.
Oh, even though I like Pahang more these days, I still love my home state Johor.
