Get rid of Najib from BN

PADANG RENGAS: Two senior Umno leaders – Padang Rengas MP Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz and Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar has raised the pressure in calling for the removal of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak from BN.

Nazri who was a former minister under the BN administration and a supreme council member said that Najib should walk the talk instead of taking up positions.

Referring to former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Nazri said that the then prime minister had step down when BN first lost its two third majority in Dewan Rakyat.

The pressure on Abdullah at that time came from Najib.

“He cannot be defended any longer. He should keep away so that Umno can rise,” said Nazri.

“Even the president (Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi took garden leave when he was told to do so,” he said.

“The president should act like a president for the sake of the party.  I am not afraid.  Both of us are said to be the ones who would party hop but it is others who are doing so.”

“We were never yes man.”

Nazri also revealed that Najib asked for the position in the the BN advisory board.

Five days ago, Najib was appointed as BN advisory board head by the coalition.

“He will help BN in our efforts to regain the people’s support,” BN secretary general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had said in a statement.

“Leaders who are facing criminal charges should take leave. We must learn to take the higher moral compass similar as how Khir Toyo and many others did,” said Khairy after attending the Padang Rengas Umno division meet.

“We seem to be doing the same thing again and again and hoping for a different outcome,” he added.

The former Umno Youth chief also said that party president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should not make decisions as if he (Ahmad Zahid) was Najib’s officer.

“President must act like a president not Najib’s officer. Now there seems to be a settlement.”

Khairy also echoed Nazri’s sentiments that they were party loyalists.

“We are party loyalists but I won’t deny that there are offers,” he said.
