Tangau won due to Umno: Hajiji
Published on: Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Umno Chief Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor (pic) said Deputy Chief Minister and Upko acting president Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau should not be arrogant to say that he joined Warisan to kick out Umno from Sabah.

He said Tangau had no right to speak about Umno that way as they were both in Barisan Nasional (BN) as component parties.

"If it had not been for Umno, Tangau would not have retained his Tuaran seat," Hajiji said, adding that Tangau was without principles.

At one point, Deputy Speaker Datuk Ahmad Abdul Rahman Ahmad asked Hajiji to take his seat and let Tangau continue with his answer but only made another member of the opposition, Apas Assemblyman Datuk Nizam Abu Bakar Titingan to defend Hajiji.

Nizam then told Ahmad not to be biased.

"He lost in Tamparuli, he lost in Kiulu. He won in Sulaman only because of Umno. Don't talk about Umno here.

Answer my question not talk about Umno," he said.

Pitas Assemblyman Bolkiah Ismail, a former BN member from Umno who left the party also bore the brunt of Hajiji's ire when he tried to interrupt the exchange.

He told Bolkiah to keep quiet as he directed his question to Tangau. Speaking to reporters after the sitting, Hajiji said the future of Umno is none of Tangau's concern.

He said, Tangau won during the GE 14 in Tuaran with assistance and hard work by Umno and BN after the KDM community rejected him.

"Even if many bad-mouth Umno and BN, they had contributed tremendously to the development in the country and State of Sabah during its 60 years rule, " he stressed.

"This includes Tangau who had enjoyed the benefits from Umno and BN. He won in the GE 13 and 14 because of Umnos's assistance and contribution."

"He is a traitor and an ingrate who forgot what Umno and his voters did for him." - Jeremy Zabala and Ricardo Unto
