Kelantan Pas deputy chief Datuk Husam Musa has tendered his resignation from all party and state government post following fallout with Nik Aziz’s son-in-law Abdul Ariffahmi.
The Pas-led state government is definitely heading in the wrong direction with the latest political development, just days after Husam’s right hand man Syed Azidi was unceremoniously removed as the Perbadanan Menteri Besar Kelantan (Kelantan Menteri Besar Incorporated) ’s corporate communications officer.
Ariffahmi who is Chief Executive Officer sacked Syed a.k.a Kickdefella after the MACC started investigating the CEO’s appointment and his links with certain tycoons and contractors.
Syed Azidi was accused of being a MACC and Umno's mole but Ariffahmi's boys have also now linked Kickdefella's BOSS as the mover behind the 'conspiracy'.
Nik Aziz is also under investigation for accepting an all-paid trip to Mekah worth more than 60,000 ringgit.
Little birds from Kota Bahru are sure that Husam has tendered his resignation but Nik Aziz, I was told, was reluctant to accept his deputy’s drastic move despite being persuaded by Ariffahmi to ‘let Husam go’.
WAS Husam impatient like his mentor Anwar Ibrahim and tried to topple his boss via underhand tactics?
Guess only GOD knows the actual truth but I won’t be surprised if Nik Aziz knows it too, for at times he appears bigger than his shadows at dawn.
UTUSAN is saying more HERE about the premature end of Husam’s ambitions to replace Nik Aziz as the Menteri Besar.
p/s Deja' vu! In 1998 a similar coup unfolded in Umno and this time around the 1998 culprit appears like the puppet-master, again!
