Barisan Nasional (BN) member of Parliament for Kalabakan Datuk Seri Abdul Ghapur Salleh has resigned from his federal post of Natural Resources and Environment Deputy Minister.
The former Sabah Deputy Chief Minister/Finance Minister will be the second BN's MP from Sabah to ditch Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's government.
The other is Kimanis MP Datuk Anifah Aman, a younger brother of Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman. The only difference is that Anifah declined before being sworn-in while Ghapur had taken his oath of office before the Yang DiPertuan Agong (King) together with the other Ministers and Deputy Ministers on March 19, 2008.
Ghapur's wife, Datin Hajah Norsuadah Haji Basah, an Assistant Minister during the Parti Berjaya Government (1976-1985) said she knew nothing about the matter.
Something must be brewing.
