JOHOR BAHRU, Former Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Osman Sapian is willing to use his 42 years of experience in politics to help his successor Dr Sahruddin Jamal in administering the state.
The Johor Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman said he was also willing to give his advice should Dr Shahruddin, who is also Bukit Kepong assemblyman, need it.
If he (Dr Sahruddin) asks for help, I will help. I am still an assemblyman (of Kempas)…a senior assemblyman and a former Menteri Besar. I have experience. I am open to giving advice if he wants it, Osman told reporters when met at the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) Office here today.
Osman, who is also Johor Bersatu chairman, said he was confident with Dr Sahruddin’s credibility to take up the responsibilities of Menteri Besar.
If he was not credible, he wouldn’t have been nominated to contest as PH candidate in the last general election, he said.
Dr Sahruddin, 43, took his oath of office as the new Menteri Besar of Johor before the Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar at Istana Bukit Serene, earlier today.
He was appointed as the 17th Johor Menteri Besar following Osman’s resignation on April 8.
