'We will help every candidate, ' Musa responds to Bung

KOTA KINABALU: Former chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman has declared that he would campaign for every Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) candidate.

Musa’s remarks came after Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin recently said he hoped the incumbent Sungai Sibuga assemblymen would campaign in support of Sabah Barisan Nasional.

“In good times or bad times, we must help each other. That is our struggle. God-willing we will help every candidate, ” he said, tagging Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin in an Instagram post on Saturday (Sept 19) morning.

On Friday (Sept 18), Bung had said he was hoping for Musa to campaign for Sabah Barisan in the coming state election, amid an ongoing fallout between the duo.

Despite not defending his Sungai Sibuga state seat, Musa was spotted at an event in Kuala Penyu and Beaufort, attended by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Thursday (Sept 17).

On Friday, he was again spotted in the Kiulu constituency campaigning in support of Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Datuk Joniston Bangkuai.

On the same day, he later turned up in support for Sabah Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) chief Datuk Hajiji Noor’s event in Sulaman, Tuaran.

While Muhyiddin had announced the formation of GRS as the new Opposition coalition, it is still uncertain whether Sabah Barisan, Perikatan and PBS are able to put on a united front, as they are set to clash in 17 seats.

Musa, who is the six-term Sungai Sibuga assemblymen since 1994, is believed to have a falling out with Bung after he was not fielded by Sabah Barisan as a candidate.

After Musa’s failed bid to take over the state government, and as well as making it to the candidate list, Musa avoided the public eye, prompting speculation as to whether he has moved to Bersatu.
