KEMAMAN: Ajil state assemblyman Ghazali Taib has been advised by Umno Terengganu liaison information bureau chairman Wan Abdul Hakim Tan Sri Wan Mokhtar to resign as state exco.
Wan Abdul Hakim agreed it would be a drastic move on Ghazali’s part but that it was best to do so to ensure smooth running of the state government under Mentri Besar Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman.
“Ghazali is a state government councillor, in the main group of policy makers and implementers. Why criticise the government under Ahmad Razif’s leadership as non-functioning when he himself is in the government?
“It means that he has also failed. He must explain what is it, that is not functioning because he said it in general which is confusing,” he told reporters at the Cukai constituency Aidilfitri gathering Wednesday night.
On Wednesday, Ghazali was reported to have criticised the state government and Ahmad Razif’s leadership through the media, divulging alleged internal crisis in the state government.
Meanwhile at the gathering attended by more than 15,000 people, Ahmad Razif approved a RM50,000 assistance for Bukit Kuang residents here who were affected by strong winds that wreaked havoc here recently.
The mentri besar also announced that RM175,000 had been set aside for youth associations in Kemaman District. – Bernama
