SMS Controversy

I have said in my last article that if Mahathir was Abdullah's watergate, the Altantuya's murder case could be Najib's. As the incoming Prime Minister, it is very important for Najib to do something concrete to reassure Malaysians that he is worthy of his position.

He ought to be reminded that it will be UMNO's 2000 delegates who may vote him in as the next President of UMNO. By virtue of his party position, Najib will be made the next Prime Minister.

Najib did not deny the existence of SMSes between him and lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.

When reporters kept pressing him to elaborate, Najib said: “Why should there be a major concern? If it is of public interest, read it very carefully, there is no abuse of power. Period.”

It is not for either Abdullah or Najib himself to claim there is no abuse of power. As a top leader of the country, he should take extra effort to subject himself to a thorough investigation to ensure he is credible to lead the country.

For his own political good, Najib must not ignore the power of perception. Abdullah may not necessary be a bad leader or a complete failure but he was perceived that way by most Malaysians especially his detractors.

For the good of Malaysia, Najib needs to help us to help him become a respected Prime Minister. He needs to explain his involvement in this case.

Najib did not deny because he could not find any excuses to do so! So, Najib's advice to Malaysians is just 'not denying' when others accuse one of wrongdoing.

Remember Najib, Saiful and the sodomy case during the run-up to the PP by-election? Najib then said that Saiful went to see him regarding some scholarship thingy. There are too many skeletons in his closet and I can't wait for the next episodes of Drama Minggu Ini. Exciting times ahead.

In the ideal world,to take over the weak management of Abdullah,

Najib should define performance expectations for the country and rakyat. Mega projects that generate employments?

Applaud and recognise the struggle of good staff , (praising anti khairy J's nemesis in Umno and others BN components)
