Kandungan pesanan Twitter Masidi Manjun ini adalah contoh tentang betapa longgarnya kerajaan baru Sabah. Masidi menceritakan bagaimana dalam masa tiga jam dia bertukar daripada Menteri (Exco) Kerjaraya kepada Kerajaan Tempatan dan Perumahan.
Katanya dia bertukar Kementerian dengan Bung Mokhtar Radin yang juga Timbalan Ketua Menteri Satu. Sebabnya jangan tanya, kata Masidi. Tunggu dia bersara dia akan cerita. Tapi kita tidak perlu tunggu lama kerana semua orang tahu peruntukan kewangan portfolio kerjaya lebih besar daripada kerajaan tempatan dan perumahan. Projek Pan Borneo yang tengah berjalan sekarang adalah lubuk mas.Menteri KKR Sabah lah yang control JKR Malaysia spt sapa yang akan dapat jadi kontraktor nanti dsbnya...
Portfolio Kerja Raya.. JKR ini cukup penting.. bukan saja menyentuh soal tanah.. tapi apa saja Projek Pembagunan, kelulusan pembangunan.. datang dari Kem. ini...Pelbagai pengumuman dalam Rancangan Malaysia ke 10-11 untuk Sabah.. spt pembinaan Lebuh Raya dsbnya berpunca dari Kem.ini..Bayangkan..bagaimana dalam PRN baru2 ini Shafie Afdhal dedahkan tentang tanah seluas 10 hinggak50 ribu hektar diagihkan kepada ahli keluarga Musa Aman menerusi Yayasan Sabah yg dipengerusikan Musa Aman... - - AKJ/TS
Awal sebelum itu,Bung Moktar Radin dikatakan mengamuk di hadapan Ketua Menteri Sabah yang baharu, Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor dalam satu kejadian di bangunan Pusat Pentadbiran Negeri Sabah (PPNS) sebentar tadi. Ia ekoran dari keengganan Hajiji untuk mematuhi perjanjian awal yang telah dipersetujui bersama di antara Barisan Nasional (BN) dan Perikatan Nasional (PN).
“Menurut perjanjian awal, PN bersetuju untuk melantik Bung sebagai Timbalan Ketua Menteri dengan memegang portfolia Kerja Raya. “Namun setelah mengangkat sumpah, Hajiji enggan mematuhi perjanjian tersebut dengan melantik Bung memegang portfolio Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan.
Bung juga dikatakan telah memanggil satu sidang akhbar khas bagi memaklumkan untuk menarik kembali sokongan terhadap Bersatu sekiranya Hajiji bertegas dengan keputusannya. Akhirnya Hajiji terpaksa akur dan memberi portfolio Kerja Raya kepadanya. - mk

Crisis averted as new Sabah CM
gives Bung last-minute portfolio swap...
Bersatu and Umno saw some friction shortly after the new Sabah government was sworn in this morning but this was quickly averted after newly minted Chief Minister Hajiji Mohd Noor agreed to give his deputy a change in portfolio. Hajiji and Bung, together with four others, were sworn in at the Sabah palace in Kota Kinabalu this morning. Hajiji is the Sabah Bersatu chief while Bung is the Sabah Umno head.
During the swearing-in ceremony, the list of assigned portfolios was announced and then circulated to the media showing the portfolios of the new state ministers. Bung, who will serve as a deputy chief minister, was originally assigned the local government and housing portfolio.
His fellow deputy chief ministers are Star president Jeffrey Kitingan and PBS vice-president Joachim Gunsalam who were given the agriculture and food industry portfolio and the trade and industry portfolio respectively. Bung had wanted control of the state Works Ministry but Hajiji had instead given this portfolio to his party deputy Masidi Manjun.
The sixth minister to be sworn in was PBS secretary-general Jahid Jahim who took the rural development portfolio. Shortly after the swearing-in, PN party staffers revealed that he was unhappy with the portfolio and was calling for a press conference at his residence in Luyang, Kota Kinabalu. However, before Bung could proceed with the press conference at 1.30pm, he was summoned to the state government building.
While the presser was postponed, Hajiji sought to prevent any public fall out as he negotiated with the Umno leaders. Bung was seen entering Hajiji's office at 1pm, together with Umno vice-presidents Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Mahdzir Khalid as well as Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan.
Finally, at a 2pm press conference convened by Hajiji, he announced that Bung and Masidi will swap portfolios. Bung will finally get his desired state Works Ministry while Masidi will take the local government and housing portfolio. "I wish to announce that the deputy chief minister I (Bung) will also serve as the works minister.
"Masidi will also help me in the finance aspect, particularly to revive the state economy hit by the Covid-19 pandemic," Hajiji said. Hajiji also downplayed any conflict between Bung and him. "There is no problem with swapping portfolios. I merely wanted Masidi to assist (me) with his finance background and experience," he added.
Pressed if Umno was unhappy, Hajiji gestured to Bung and said: "That's not true, Umno is here". The press conference was cordial and both men laughed. Bung, after getting his desired portfolio, also downplayed the issue at a separate press conference. "It's not an issue, it was just a miscommunication. "We are happy. Now, our responsibility is to help the government and people," he said.
While Bung and Hajiji tried to portray that the last-minute swap was nothing out of the ordinary, Masidi wasn't shy about airing his surprise. "What a day! Less than three hours after being appointed state works minister, I am now the local government and housing minister," he said on Twitter.
However, Masidi said he will only tell-all after he was no longer in the job. "I swapped job with Bung. Please don't ask me the reasons. I will tell all after I retire," he said. - mk
Corrupted person can smell money miles away. Of course work ministry has hugh budget. - Just a Malaysian
Bung wanted the Works Ministry because it is a much bigger loaf of bread. Billion dollar highway projects, etc. etc. - Man Lee
Hajiji already show his level of leadership. Nasi lemak tanpa telor. Bung wants to sink his teeth into the billions for the work’s ministry. Wonder if MACC is interested to monitor this crap?? - Simple Truth
Portfolio Kerja Raya is where the money is as the portfolio with the most budget. More money means easier to do more creative accounting. This should be renamed as Kementerian Kaya Raya. - Anak JB
Thank goodness Bung Fak U is not CM.- TS
