Saying this yesterday, Osman, who is Kempas assemblyman, said he was seated next to the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president during the two-day state assembly.
“He (Muhyiddin) told me to take it slow a bit,” he said.
Asked to explain further, the 69-year-old politician, who courted many controversies during his one-year tenure as mentri besar, said this meant “not to talk too much”.
“Maybe Muhyiddin still wants me to sit longer in Bersatu. 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 two viral videos showed him campaigning on behalf of an independent candidate during the Slim by-election and attending a dinner by Pejuang.
Earlier, during his adjournment speech, Osman urged assemblymen to remind their respective party members to stop all provocation that could lead to political instability.
“Most importantly, we must respect the Federal Government’s effort to bring the country out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Those who are pushing for a general election to happen are those who have lost in the last election and do not have any position and place in the government,” he added.
