Musa Aman pledges ‘heart and soul’ and Shahrizat says accusations will be answered.
Umno president Najib Razak has received the whole-hearted backing of Sabah Umno and Wanita Umno, the national women’s wing.
Sabah Umno leader Musa Aman, speaking at Kota Marudu Umno’s delegates meeting, said: “We unanimously, with our whole heart and soul put our trust in the top leadership to resolve the issues that have surfaced.”
Musa also expressed appreciation to the top leadership for their confidence and acknowledgement of the state party’s loyalty and sincerity in contributing to the strength of the party and federal government.
He said the acknowledgement was reflected in the appointment of Sabah leaders as ministers and deputy ministers in the Federal Cabinet and important positions in the ministries.
“Not forgetting the funds given to develop Sabah and its people. This is the beauty and benefit of being in Umno,” he said.
Wanita Umno leader Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, speaking in Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan, said the women’s movement would always stand strong by Najib and was confident that all the accusations hurled at Najib would be answered.
“I believe that for as long as all Umno members give their undivided support to Najib’s leadership, trust me, the crisis, trials and tribulations which he is going through today will be proven to be mere challenges.
“Our party has become the focus of attacks from all parties, why must we hand our president to them. I must bring the strength of the women to support the Umno president, especially at a time when he is facing so many challenges and trials,” she said.
Commenting on the issue of a RM2.6 billion political donation to Najib, Shahrizat said she believed Najib did not have any bad intentions over the money being deposited into his personal account. “If Najib wanted to do something wrong, would he have opened an account in Malaysia in his own name (to receive the money)?” she aske
