Majimbun: No Need For A Senior Minister


Sepanggar MP Datuk Eric Majimbun (Pic) said hundreds of thousands of people in Sabah would stand to benefit if the government spends on bringing more development in the State instead of on having a Senior Minister.
He said this probably one the reasons why former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad refused it when he was offered such a role during the leadership transition from him to present Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in 2003.
Responding to the call by Datuk Mohamad Aziz (BN-Sri Gading) for Abdullah to be given a role as Senoir Minister after he steps down as Prime Minister next month, Majimbun said to do so would entail more taxpayers' money which can be better used to provide more development for the people.

Majimbun is also the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Deputy President.

True. There is no need for a Senior Minister and I just wonder what is a Senior Minister job?
