“His son has gotten bigger contract from the government than my son” .
Guess who has said this when pressed for a comment by the reporters yesterday. Were you shocked to hear this from the mouth of Prime Minister cum Finance Minister cum Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi? I don’t know about you but I was speechless!
This man at first denied that his son, who’s the boss of Scomi, has taken any government contract.
When former PM Tun Mahathir Mohamad told him that his son has obtained government contracts worth no less than RM1 billion, he said his son’s company was the only one that can do the job for Petronas in the region.
When Mahathir pointed out to him that Scomi is not the only one that can do the job, he turned around and said “your son has got a bigger contract, so don’t you dare to complain about my son…” Oh goodness me!
On the subject of transporting coal to TNB, he actually said that Scomi has got 180 ships! But he quickly added that the ships were originally owned by a company acquired by Scomi. So, we are counting on Mahathir to tell us whether the acquisition was only wrapped up after the company have gotten the contract.
He must have forgotten about the letter he signed and sent to all young voters in the country during the last general elections (shown above).
And all the pledges he made about modern day Justice Bao , clean, incorruptible and trustworthy administration must have been thrown out of the window!
And please do not tell us that the signature was forged by the Oxford graduate.
“Saya tak tahu“? Not again!
