Chief Minister Musa Aman is playing a “game of bluff” when he said all is well within the Sabah Barisan Nasional, says Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP).

Chief Minister Musa Aman is playing a “game of bluff” when he said all is well within the Sabah Barisan Nasional, says Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP). SAPP claims that the Sabah BN is wrecked with fierce dissent, giving the lie to Musa's assertion that the relationship among the state component parties was cordial.

The state BN is trying to hide the fact that there is fierce dissent in the coalition over Musa's leadership, it says.

SAPP supreme council member, David Chong, said the discord was revealed when Musa, who is also the Sabah BN chief, was forced to say that the component parties were united.

He said Musa tried to forestall a bitter fallout during the BN meeting on Tuesday with Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) leaders over his failure to act on certain issues. This showed that the coalition is not united, he added.

On Wednesday, LDP deputy president Chin Su Phin, who represented his president VK Liew at the state BN meeting, announced that the party had lost confidence in Musa's leadership and could no longer work with him.

“The fact is the chief minister was only bluffing the people when he said that the state BN component parties are united,” Chong said in a statement here yesterday.

“It shows that the BN component parties cannot cooperate with one another because they only care about their personal interests and not the rakyat and state,” he said.

Chong said that a sign of the disunity in the state BN was also reflected through Chin’s statement that Musa simply did not want to listen to the views of the BN partners.

On Thursday, Musa, when responding to Chin, reiterated that the state BN was as strong as ever.

Musa was reported as saying that the issues raised by Chin were personal like the Kudat Mazu statue project.

'I hope Musa is telling the truth'

Musa expressed regret that some LDP leaders chose to raise personal issues at the state BN meeting on Tuesday and insisted that the relationship among the component parties remained cordial.

“I hope Musa is telling the truth... he should tell the people what actually happened during the meeting or he would be called a liar,” said Chong.

He also said Musa should exercise his power as the state BN chairman to “suspend and expel the one or two component parties for insubordination”.

He said it was clear that the state BN leadership did not care about LDP as could be seen in the group photo published in the newspapers the next day. There were no LDP leaders in it.

“Even if Chin was only representing his president, surely Deputy Chief Minister Peter Pang, who is a LDP vice-president and representing the Chinese community in Sabah, qualifies to be among the state BN leaders.

“But it has been proven that the BN cannot cooperate... PBS president Joseph Pairin Kitingan’s statement that Chin’s remarks did not represent the views of LDP but his own was just an attempt to cover up for Musa,” said Chong.
