Najib Must Answer for NFC

When PKR opened Shahrizat’s cupboard to reveal the skeletons, it soon became evident that all the allegations were really true. And I am sure if they dig deeper into the dark hidden recesses of that same cupboard, more skeletons will show up. Perhaps that is why the prime minister had announced the proposal to invite bids to carry on the national cattle farming project (i.e. NFC).

One is not wrong to assume that this is a tacit acknowledgment that the project has indeed failed miserably. And as PKR’s Rafizi Ramli had said, it is also to cover up Najib’s own mistake for awarding the contract to an undeserving party.

I will have to agree with Rafizi that the prime minister is the one who is directly responsible for this scandalous NFC scorcher, of his involvement in the matter because he had allowed a RM250 million federal project to be granted to NFCorp, a company which had zilch experience and was owned by Shahrizat Jalil’s husband and family. “This reflects the carelessness on the prime minister’s part which led to a possibility of misappropriation (of the loan) as well as criminal breach of trust”, Rafizi had claimed.

So when Noh Omar, the Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister repeated Najib’s desire for somebody else to take over the NFC project (The Star, March 28, 2012, p 18) – my nose twitched and I smell a rat! NFCorp is already under investigation – so it is only fair that this is completed and charges are filed against these criminals before Najib starts to tinker with NFC again! Unless, as Rafizi hinted, Najib wants to ensure the NFC cowdung does not continue to suffocate us and make us want to puke our vomit. This explains why Najib is eager to have the bovine stench of scandal be concealed and permanently closeted so that Najib can still smell like a rose for GE13!

Here’s photos of some SUBS people at Fig & Olive at Sunway Pyramid celebrating our colleague and friend’s birthday – Adrian Mitra Nathai, who’s from Trinidad & Tobago, by the way. The company was great, the service was slow and the food was awful. Still, we all managed a smile or two.
