‘Bossku’ only good for Najib, not Umno, says Nazri
“My question to Najib is, before when he was the leader but we lost the general election. Now what is he going to do as an advisor? What else can he advise?”
(MMO) – Umno lawmaker Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz says the “Bossku” phenomenon linked to Datuk Seri Najib Razak only benefits the former prime minister personally and not the Malay nationalist party — now in the federal Opposition.
In an interview with Sinar Harian today, Nazri said the support shown towards “Bossku” does not reflect the sentiment towards Umno.
The Padang Rengas MP, who has been openly critical of Najib’s appointment as the Barisan Nasional advisory board chairman, said the latter’s new role would also not benefit the party.
“The ‘Bossku’ phenomenon does not bring any impact to the party but more for personal gain. The support towards ‘Bossku’ cannot be measured as the amount of support towards the party.
“We had won in three by-elections because of the Umno-PAS cooperation, not because of Najib’s character.
“My question to Najib is, before when he was the leader but we lost the general election. Now what is he going to do as an advisor? What else can he advise?” Nazri was quoted as saying.
Nazri said Najib should have emulated past Umno presidents who resigned to take responsibility for the party’s poor showing in national polls, naming Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, and even Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
