KOTA KINABALU: Umno information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa has described the formation of Parti Warisan Sabah as purely for the political survival of its president, Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, who is also a former Umno vice-president.
Annuar said the party’s slogans “Sabah for Sabahans” and “Sabah Ubah” were only for Shafie’s political career as he never had them when he was in Umno.
Annuar said before he left Umno, Shafie, who is Semporna MP and a former federal minister, was misled by former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad into thinking he would get a more senior post in Umno.
“So the Sabahans must think which is more important, Shafie’s political survival or their own future.
“It is the Sabah people and the state that have to be saved, not the political career of one person,” Annuar said at a press conference here yesterday.
Annuar said he was very confident that the people of Sabah would vote for a government that can bring political and economic stability to the state. – Bernama
