JUMAT IDRIS DISLOYALTY IS A THORN IN UMNO’S FLESH
The word ‘LOYAL’ is a common one in political commentary and conversation, but it is often verging on spin. It gives a vague, olde-worlde glow to something more prosaic, pragmatic, and sometimes pernicious.
LOYALTY is the utmost important element in cooperation between State Leader with any parliament leader to ensure right path of development vision.
Exactly 2 years ago, DATUK JUMAT IDRIS the incumbent MP for Sepanggar was very vocal criticizing YAB DSP MUSA HJ AMAN on his leadership and capabilities of one of the most respected political leader in Sabah.
He even submitted his proposal to replace the Sabah Umno liaison chief, YAB DSP MUSA HJ AMAN to be replaced with non-other than DSP SHAFIE APDAL, now the current OPPOSITION political leader of PARTI WARISAN SABAH. The rationale back then was DSP SHAFIE APDAL was the vice president of Umno and the current OPPOSITION leader should be the Sabah UMNO liaison chief.
In politics this is what we called BETRAYAL! Can we imagine if the Prime Minister, YAB DATO SRI NAJIB RAZAK would even considered JUMAT BETRAYAL proposal during that moment of time?
One would wondered, why JUMAT, who claims to have a good rapport and LOYALTY with our beloved Chief Minister has to go through the media as a platform to get his message across, knowing that such decisions are the prerogative of the Chief Minister.
WHERE IS HIS LOYALTY?
The jury is out on JUMAT BETRAYAL when he submitted his proposal to replace YAB DSP MUSA HJ AMAN with DSP SHAFIE APDAL, and the rhetoric told itself, loyalty to the incumbent did not stop the coup. Loyalty is supposed to be an unwavering commitment, rather than a pragmatic alliance, but it was no shield against caucus blades.
The point is JUMAT is basically DISLOYAL, he was never loyal to YAB CM in the first place. His loyalty was to his close allied, DSP SHAFIE APDAL and how to preserve JUMAT power in SEPANGGAR. When YAB DSP MUSA HJ AMAN showed promise, JUMAT was in. When JUMAT greedy needs weren’t met, he REBELS. This has been a common characteristic in JUMAT political career ever since he was a young youth leader. A trait similar to DSP SHAFIE APDAL and DS ANWAR IBRAHIM.
A RAT WILL EAT THEIR OWN SHIT WHEN THEY ARE TRAP
After for the last 2 years of bashing and ridicule our beloved YAB CM now JUMAT seems to have tone down his outspokenness and even praising YAB CM on DSP MUSA AMAN trust and leadership in a recent interview. Knowing his close allied, DSP SHAFIE APDAL has jumped ship like a RAT too, JUMAT is smart enough to know being in YAB CM good grace is the only way he can preserve his greedy power in Sepanggar.
SHOULD YAB DSP MUSA AMAN HJ AMAN GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE?
Andrew Carnegie once said, “I reward LOYALTY with LOYALTY and DISLOYALTY with DISTANCE”. Trust, once lost, could not be easily found. Not in a year, perhaps not even in a lifetime. I think the answer is clear-cut, it would be a SHAME and DISGRACE to the people of Sepanggar and YAB CM leadership to have a DISLOYAL MP like JUMAT IDRIS to be part of BN Sabah political plan moving forward. Sepanggar need a MP leader that can fully support the government programs leads by YAB CM without questioning his trustworthiness and ability to lead us into a better Sepanggar.
Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships. The same can be said for finding a LOYAL MP in politics too. We believed and fully support YAB DATO SRI NAJIB TUN RAZAK and YAB DATUK SERI PANGLIMA MUSA HJ AMAN judgements in nominating his next LOYAL MP for Sepanggar.
