Najib Razak will never recover from Trust Deficit

by Nawar Firdaws


PM Najib Razak may never regain public trust, says Asia’s top debater

Even if Prime Minister Najib Razak is one day cleared of all allegations of corruption, the people will never trust the findings since all the investigations were conducted while he was still running the country.

Asia’s top debater Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said the trust deficit in Najib’s administration was at an all-time high following the perceived interference in the investigations over debt-ridden 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), and the contentious RM2.6 billion donation Najib that entered his personal accounts in 2013.

Speaking to FMT in an exclusive interview, the 23-year-old said the consensus among a huge majority of the youth today was that the top administrators, specifically Najib, were not fit to lead the country out of the hot water it was currently in.

“Look at what we’ve been through for the past few years. The fact that we are still stuck in this rut is indicative that we will be here for the next few years unless something is done immediately.Najib has been given plenty of chances to make things right but he did not take them. Now, even if Bank Negara (Malaysia) or MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) come out and clear Najib of all the wrongdoings he has been accused of, no one will believe it.”

Syed was of the opinion that if Najib really loved the country, he would have been able to differentiate between right and wrong, as well as what the public wanted of him. He said it was time Najib started listening to the pleas of his people rather than his paid advisors and focus on the interests of the nation, not his own.

“I was in Greece recently for the biggest debate tournament in the world and every time I met up with my friends from Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge, they’ll be like, ‘Hey , I saw your country on the front page of my newspaper.’

“I remember back when I would be proud every time people read about my country. They talked about us being the Asian tiger, the economic powerhouse, out competing Singapore. Now you only hear about 1MDB and corruption. The Malaysian identity and beauty have been tarred with negativity. As a Malaysian, I think something must be done, now.”

  1. That’s very true. Personally too I have the gut feel that Najib cannot be trusted anymore. I used to defend him in this very blog before the 1MDB & RM2.6 billion DERMA events. In my opinion the trust deficits of Najib’s administration will only get worse with time without any hope of recovery. I think he should be smart enough to realise & accept that fact. There is no escape in view – the people will finally prevail.

  2. Does anybody think that with all the bloody luggage and legacy that he happily carries, that he will care about little things like trust-deficits? He and his consort seem pretty proud of having hides similar to the odd-toed ungulates that forage in the Pahang forests.

    And as for the interest of the country, I think a donation of even one-tenth of the USD700 million would have been enough for him to abandon all love of negara bangsa dan agama. The arabs sure overpaid for this piece of carcass.

  3. Quote:- “…if Najib really loved the country…”

    I have no doubt Najib really loves Malaysia. But loving it enough to go to jail?

    I am sure Najib has asked himself 1000s of times….am I that stupid to go to jail for a bunch of bangangs?

    So, since you, Syed Saddiq, are obviously not stupid, you should know how Najib answered himself?

  4. Najib do not intend to close the trust deficit. What he intend to do is make voters mistrust the opposition even more. Specifically so long as PAS supporters mistrust Pakatan Harapan, he wins.

  5. So now, he says ” GST AKAN MENYELAMAT KAN EKONOMY NEGARA …..” – Phew…..GST or Indirect taxes Collections are by the billons, ten-fold @ (low) 6%….. yes…..

    But the larger Question is : Menyelamat kan Negara, ATAU , menyelamat kan siapa….?
