Shahrizat, do the right thing, just resign!
We must also bear in mind that when Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim was in the government he made off with billions of ringgit and tried to make a deal with the World Bank to enslave Malaysia. Also had Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim succeeded in running the country our natural resources would also be in the hand and control of big Multi-National Corporations.
Back to Shahrizat, if she decided to step down she must put in place the Wanita movement properly and effectively so not to scuttle her movement!
"Earlier, Umno supreme council member Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin asked for Shahrizat to resign following the controversy surrounding the NFC, which received a RM250 million soft loan from the government. The company is run by Shahrizat's family, which has denied allegations that the project had failed, or that it had misappropriated money."
In 1985, the Canada Fisheries Minister John Fraser, under the conservative prime minister, Brian Mulroney, was forced to resign over a Tuna-gate controversy.
Fraser was caught closing one eye when allowing a canned tuna factory to process contaminated canned tuna meant for export. Even though he knew about the contaminated canned tuna yet he allowed the factory to sell them, thus damaging the credibility of the government of the day.
According to Wikipedia there were many scandals with the -gate suffix beginning the well known Watergate, see here! So over a public outcry this particular Canadian minister had to go over this Tunagate fiasco.
Back here, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil must go, and a strong resolve from the government and party's leadership is needed to do this. So Najib, just take the bull by the horns and rattle them, and live like a warrior.
Two prominent Umno members of parliament, one a minister, and a former prime minister have expressed their thought over the NFCgate, and that Shahrizat must go and also in view of her name that has been grossly tainted over the controversy surrounding her husband company NFC.
The moral of the story is the government must been seen to be credible and any member of the government that cast doubt over this credibility therefore, he or she, must go at all cost!
Below is one of the many articles on the subject:
PUTRAJAYA (Dec 6, 2011): It is up to the Umno leadership to decide whether Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (pix) stays or goes following the controversy surrounding her husband’s National Feedlot Centre.
Federal Territory Umno deputy chairman Datuk Raja Nong Chik Zainal Abidin, who is also Federal Territory Minister, said this after launching the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley Tender Alert System (G-TAS) at his ministry today.
Raja Nong Chik said that Umno leadership must seriously look into the controversy that has put the party in bad light.
“The party leadership must decide on her position and it is up to them to decide,” he said.
“In fact, an investigation is ongoing on the matter and we should also wait for it (to be concluded),” he said.
“But the Opposition has raised a lot of issues on this,” he said, adding that Shahrizat’s position as Umno Wanita chief can only be decided by the top brass.
Raja Nong Chik is the latest Umno leader to comment on the issue.
Earlier, Umno supreme council member Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin asked for Shahrizat to resign following the controversy surrounding the NFC, which received a RM250 million soft loan from the government. The company is run by Shahrizat's family, which has denied allegations that the project had failed, or that it had misappropriated money.
On Monday, Cheras Umno division chairman Datuk Wira Syed Ali Alhabsee said Shahrizat should consider stepping down for the good of the party.
He said Shahrizat should not wait to be told to do so or asked to leave by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.
