This is not the first time nor it will be the last time*wink..wink* that I have a ” Friendly Chat ” with a political veteran. Was it a predetermined meeting..NO CHANCE..!! It must be the Constellations or maybe its even predestined by the Almighty Creator,” Praise the Lord ” that his time is now or mine to advertise him.
How well do I really know him..? Am I falling for it.? Is there a bargain or a trap waiting to engulf me in flames.? Enough of the doubts and as clear as the deep sea waters this veteran politician seems well mannered with a touch of human ethics and is a class act. Our paths have crossed on numerous occasions and from what I have gathered from his close friends he does pack a dictionary full of good political knowhows in the government machinery.
Why now and why did he NOT come into my life when he was on top of his political game ? Is fhis a politicians way of using the Tools available to him to push himself back in the limelight when all seems losts and gone. Anwar Ibrahim is a good example.
The day after 30/8 a certain prominent Datin mentioned to me,”audie would you believe it ,even in my wildest dream we would never have thought that Anwar will come back and give BN many a sleepless night.”
OooH O.K. forgive my longwindedness I am getting there and the area in question is first a Bidayuh Constituency in the heartland of Serian N19. The total votes stands at 15449 and the YB who has sitting in the chair for as long as I know and that must be nearly 20 years.
YB Frederick Bayoi is a charmer in PBB circles with his down to earth approach but lately there are voices within the area that he is beginning to loose some of the plot. Of course that could be personal or the oppositions way of trying to derail the man or even from the younger PBB boys and I person in question seems to be Martin Ben.(Don’t let YB Bayoi hear it from here..Ssshhh..)
Secondly who is this person I am advertising.. Here Goes the tremor..(droom droom droom -drum rolls please).. for it to be heard all the way to the PKR hierarchy in Kuala Lumpur as the person in question is a University mate of Anwar Ibrahim. He was in the Faculty of Academy of Arts while Anwar was in Malay Faculty Studies.
He remembers Anwar very well when Anwar shown like a Beacon of light in the Speakers corner in Uni and especially so when Anwar spoke on the issues which he Champion,’ The Cause for the Baling Farmers in Kedah.
Need you all know more or is he doing the same like our old schoolmates of 1978 who are now putting together a Team to be given the opportunity to help Sarawak towards 2020.
The advertising Fee will come later I presume…ya right.. but there must be a reason why I see him in a different light to push him forward to even be considered a candidate in the next Sarawak State Elections. Anwar just consider him as a God Sent signal to you and do not just brush him off. (skeletons in the closet..???)
I’m sure your Information Chief See Chee How will know how to get hold of him or even PKR State Advisor and former Senator Michael Bong will know how to rope him in.( Both of them from SNAP previously)
There are a number of calibre people around but it seems that your PKR boys/Political scientists we call them here..haha are not doing enough or just plain SELFISH LOOKING AFTER THEIR OWN POSITIONS.
He wrote it down his resume for me on the only blank piece of paper at the back of an Old German football odds paper dated 9/1/2009. I will keep it in a my security box just like I did for the PRS original membership lists. Maybe when Pakatan takes over the federal government in future I will tell them how the ROS made the decision and it must not be repeated for the honour of the civil service. The time will come don’t worry as Paul Kadang says as History has a way of appearing when you least expects.
He is 62 years of Age like Anwar of course still handsome he says.
- He is Andrew Nyabe a Bidayuh. He holds a degree and Dip of Education from U.M.(1968-1971).
- In 1972-1976 He served as a Upper Secondary School Teacher(SMK Binatang & St. Thomas Secondary Kuching.
- 1977-1987 He served as a Political Secretary under the SNAP allocation.
- 1977 served in Ministry of Communication and Works
- 1978-1984 Local Government Ministry
- 1984-1987 Land Development Ministry
- Present Chairperson Koperasi Sdn.Bhd.
Impressive credentials and why is he not even in the local Bahagian PKR Committee. Maybe his credentials must have feared the people who are running the divisions. They always say Good People never make good in Politics and this could be a Clear Cut of putting his experience in a COLD BOX till someone DIVINE opens it .
It seems a retired Police Officer by the name of Akaw Norijeb recruited the following persons for the PKR Bahagian and the Chairman is Encik Ramli,Secretary Max Sunting Treasure Sapiee bin Chiniong. ( politics huh!!!)
I am a Division Chief and I know very well that it does happen in divisional committees but in POLITICS it is selfishness which usually pushes one up the ladder of success. I am lucky enough to have a great team of members who are very cooperative and we push for Team efforts instead of individualism. The MU team is a living example and Alex Ferguson knows how to deal with THE BIGGER THAN LIFE OR VERY GUNGHO FOOTBALL SUPERSTARS…
Andrew has helped many people to acheive the YB status but it seems what he is lacking is,” ALL HIS DEAR AND SUPPOSEDLY CLOSE FRIENDS FORGOT ABOUT PUSHING HIM UP AFTER THEY HAVE MADE IT.”
The same goes for a number of aspiring politicians in PKR they forget that its not them that put them there but the people surrounding them and the voters in the constituency. I remember how one senior PKR politician who said to me that in YB Dominiques greatest chance to be YB he was helped by Anwar who saw where the votes were and how he pushed them to get the votes.
If not for Anwar there is no YB Dominique today. He will still be trying to be a YB I suppose and maybe in 2011. But its destiny and maybe Andrews destiny is about to be written as he will be seated if all goes well in one of the 108 YB rooms available in the new DUN building.(at the moment there are only 71 seats to be contested)
So whats so special about Andrew.? He told me Its the struggle of his people (mosts of them say the same thing hik hik hik) which he would like to address in his twilight years and hopes that the GODS will answer his prayers. He is always on the ground in the constituency and this advertisement on him will be like a lottery won by PKR as I will have done him justice and if Anwar does call him for a FRIENDLY CHAT that will be 1 less out of the 6 seats in the Bidayuh hinterland to capture.
Its up to PKR now as I know for well that a lot of the former BN political secretaries are now been closely watched by the present BN State administration. So PKR dont tell me after 2011 elections that you did not listen to this Sarawak advertisement. Dont regret and say later IF ONLY…………….I have made my stance here and See Chee How the almighty creator has bestowed upon you to give Andrew at least an audience if not Anwar will have known you just let him past through the NET…
Political advertisement N19 Frederick Bayoi is already looking over his shoulder ..I’m sure Andrews closest friend former District Officer Roland Abot will even vouch that PKR is definedly a loser if Andrew is not even CALLED UP OR CONSIDEREDfor an interview……
.Now then you wouldn’t like to let Anwar down do you…???
