Former minister Zainuddin Maidin has poured cold water on BN strategic communication director Abdul Rahman Dahlan’s promise that he and Umno will personally depose of Najib Abdul Razak if the prime minister had taken the rakyat’s money.
Zainuddin said Abdul Rahman, who is also Urban Well-being, Housing and Local Government Minister, wouldn’t have been appointed into the cabinet if Najib wasn’t confident that his men would stand by him.
“Rahman Dahlan said Umno will remove Najib if he is guilty.
“If Najib knew you wouldn’t back him he would not have appointed you minister,” said Zainuddin in a Twitter posting.
Abdul Rahman in a television interview on Tuesday had assured the RM2.6 billion deposited into Najib’s personal bank accounts was not public funds.
“If the RM2.6 billion is the rakyat’s money being robbed, there is no need for Clare Rewcastle-Brown, Wall Street Journal or Sarawak Report to topple the Umno president.
“I and the other Umno folks will topple him,” Rahman had said.
Sarawak Report and The Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ) were the first to report about the RM2.6 billion deposits into Najib’s bank accounts.
