Disappointed Jeffrey quits PKR

KUALA LUMPUR: It’s official. Sabah politician Jeffrey Kitingan has resigned from PKR. FMT has acquired a copy of his resignation letter dated Dec 31 sent via e-mail to party president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and copied to the state liaison secretary.
The letter ends Jeffrey’s denial today that he had not “yet” quit from the party after his close aides tipped off FMT earlier that the former PKR vice-president had sent in his resignation to Wan Azizah and copied the mail to some of his inner circle members.
Not amused by his latest theatrics, a source in his inner circle said that Jeffrey’s fickle-minded “stunt” was to enable him “to do some last-minute bargaining with Anwar (Ibrahim, PKR adviser)”.
But Jeffrey’s resignation letter, however, sounded otherwise.

In his letter, Jeffrey said: “Anwar’s obsession is to capture Putrajaya without listening to us and our Borneo Agenda. Therefore, after a deep soul-searching I have decided to resign from PKR with immediate effect.
“We have learnt from the 47 years of our so-called independence and our partnership with Sarawak and Malaya in the federation of Malaysia that we cannot trust others to defend our rights and to do things for us… We have to take responsibility for ourselves and our future.”
A disappointed Jeffrey also stated that PKR’s agenda was “not our agenda” and that the party’s priority “is not our priority”.
“My resignation from PKR does not mean that I do not support your (PKR) ideals nor does it mean that we will become enemies.
“We can still work together to achieve the desired change for a better Malaysia,” said Jeffrey who signed off as Pensiang division chief.
Jeffrey’s resignation has once and for all ended hours and weeks of speculation about his position in the party.
Jeffrey is expected to pursue his passion – autonomy for Sabah and Sarawak – through his newly established rights movement United Borneo Front (UBF).
The UBF aims to unite Sabahans to regain their position in the country.
