‘Can we trust Sabah BN leaders, anymore?’

The only reason Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is
desperately wooing Sabah is because Umno can no
longer rule Peninsular Malaysia without
Sabah and Sarawak.

PENAMPANG: A veteran political activist who was once with Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) said many among the Barisan Nasional leaders in Sabah had at many times told crowds that BN stands for “Barisan Nah Sial”.
Fredoline Edwin Lojingki, 71, who is now with opposition State Reform Party (STAR) said he could name these hypocrite leaders who are now heaping praises after praises on BN and its corrupt leaders.
“These leaders once referred to BN as Barisan Nah Sial but they are singing a different tune now because they are now ministers, they got projects and all the trappings of power,” he said in a statement here today in response to PBS Johnny Mositun’s statement yesterday.
Lojingki said the PBS information chief has forgotten what had Umno done with its two-thirds majority.
“He forgot that it is because of BN losing its two thirds majority in parliament that it is now wooing Sabah and Sarawak votes,” he opined.
“Has Mositun forgotten that at one time Dr Mahathir Mohamad proudly announced on television that without Sabah and Sarawak, Umno could still rule the federal government?
“Is Mositun aware of the importance of a check and balance in parliament?” he asked.
Lojinki further reminded Sabahans and leaders to think before they speak. He said the questions they must first ask of themselves is: “Is a two-third majority, or worse, a complete control of parliament by BN good or bad for Sabah.”
“We leaders have a duty to explain what we believe is good for the country. Let us not mislead the people just because we curry powder with the power that be.
“Lets not forget how difficult it is for lagging Sabah and Sarawak to be heard by a powerful central power,” he said, adding that it is only the people who could decide if they want BN, or any other party, to have a two-thirds majority in the 222-seat parliament.

KDMs ‘will lose’
Mositun, who is also Sabah state assembly deputy speaker, had earlier this week said Sabahans must remember the state never had such a “high representation” in the federal cabinet like now under BN.
He said under Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, BN had been inclusive and had given every community a hand in policy-making and governance of the country.
“Sabahans in particular the KDMs will lose its representations if the opposition comes to power.
“The opposition’s main objective is just to make Anwar Ibrahim the prime minister,” he said adding that the people must give BN a two-third majority in both the parliament and in Sabah state legislative assembly.
