Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) Chairman Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (pic) hopes his predecessor Tan Sri Musa Aman will join the Umno campaign trail and show as much enthusiastic support for its Libaran candidate as he did for their Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) partners in the state election.

Bung Moktar, who is leading the BN election campaign commended former Sabah Chief Minister Musa for stumping for allies Parti Pribumi Bersatu Sabah (Bersatu) and Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) despite being excluded as a candidate this time round.

“I expect maybe Musa may also campaign for Umno soon. Maybe not today or the day after tomorrow, but soon. I hope so. 

“Maybe he will campaign for the Libaran candidate because he is the former Libaran leader, and our former Chief Minister,” the Kinabatangan MP said on the campaign trail here.

Musa, the Sungai Sibuga incumbent assemblyman, has been at odds with the federal Umno leadership since his attempt to wrest control of the Sabah government from Warisan through several crossovers failed, culminating in the dissolution of the assembly.

His name was left out of the BN candidate line-up for Election 2020. 

Bung Moktar claimed he had not received an application to contest from Musa prior to the candidate announcement.

Musa has kept a low profile after that, but surprised many when he appeared in Beaufort yesterday at a function attended by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also Bersatu president.

Musa appeared in Tuaran and urged voters to support the GRS aligned candidates in Kiulu and Tamparuli, where PBS is contesting.

“Actually, I don’t really plan to go to the ground to campaign...I was thinking of enjoying my retirement for a while, but for the sake of my comrades, my good friends and my brothers...here I am, willing to help as much as I could so that, InsyaAllah, they can win the election.

“I will, as much as possible, try to remind the people and educate them so that they will not be fooled,” he said.
