ISKANDAR PUTERI: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has advised former Johor mentri besar Datuk Osman Sapian "to take it slow" over his recent behaviour.

The matter was admitted by Osman himself when met after the Johor assembly meeting which concluded at Bangunan Sultan Ismail in Kota Iskandar here on Sunday (Sept 13).

The Kempas assemblyman said that he met with Muhyiddin, who is also Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president, during the two-day assembly meeting, as both were seated next to each other.

“He (Muhyiddin) told me to take it slow a bit,” Osman said when asked about him attending two Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang) events recently, prior to the state assembly meeting.

When asked to explain further, the 69-year-old politician, who courted many controversies during his one-year tenure as mentri besar, said it meant not to talk too much.

“Maybe, Muhyiddin still wants me to be longer in Bersatu and he also invited me to come over and see him whenever I am free,” he said.

Osman is expected to be hauled up by Bersatu’s disciplinary board after the state assembly meeting.

He is facing the possibility of having his Bersatu membership terminated after two viral videos showed him campaigning on behalf of an Independent candidate during the Slim by-election and attending a dinner by Pejuang.
