Since the toppling of the BN government he led, former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak gave his maiden speech at Pekan, denying accusations of stealing from the country’s coffers.
“I did not steal from the people,” he told a crowd of at least 500 at the Umno building in Pekan today.
“You know me, I have served here for 42 years,” he said. The crowd responded with shouts of “We love you Datuk Seri!”
Looks like the people of his constituency in Pekan still very much love their MP. He insisted that they knew that he was neither a thief nor a crook. Najib said that he believes he had been targeted due to his previous positions as Umno president and prime minister.
He told the crowd, “To topple the party, they had to target the president. They would do anything as long as my brand was destroyed.” He then went on to say how his enemies were also targeting him through his wife.
He said that those who are against him have claimed that the decisions he made could only be made after he first referred to his wife, Rosmah Mansor. “This is nothing but slander.”
Najib stressed that all his decisions were made collectively in the cabinet, as opposed to being made in his house.
“I did not say that we had to wait first because I had to refer to my wife.
“But because my wife has a Master’s degree and is quite in the know of things, sometimes she lets slip certain things.
“But this doesn’t mean that she has absolute power, I didn’t practice such a thing,” he emphasised.
He also lamented how most Malaysians would prefer to watch “slander” on YouTube as opposed to watching the news on the country’s economic advancement.
“They open YouTube, watch ‘Najib does this, Rosmah does that’, it’s ‘nice’ for them. I saw that the views even reached up to 900,000. People want to hear nonsense and slander as opposed to the truth. So the truth has been defeated by lies.” He then made a comparison to football. “we play fairly but those who committed fouls win.”
Even with the reopened investigations into 1MDB, the former premier insists that he is innocent of any crime.
