"....Huat Hui pointed out that Matu town’s 22 shop houses are old and dilapidated.
“We need capable and enterprising leaders like Wahab to transform the old wooden shop houses in Matu town to concrete buildings just like in Daro town to enhance our business and trading activities,” he said. - Borneo Post
Wahab was and is still Matu/Daro rep for the last 27 years. Yes for the last 27 years these 22 units of "old dilapidated pasar kayu of Matu" are still there until to this date!
The chinese of Matu want Wahab to transform these 22 units of "old dilapidated wooden buildings" to concrete buildings, because they believe that only Wahab, who is "capable & enterprising leader" can do magic with his wonderful wand .... chap..chap alakajam, there goes new transformed concrete buildings of Pasar Matu! Then forget about 27 years of past records!
We can appreciate and be thankful to Wahab for giving away RM200,000 to help over come the chinese cemetery's problem, but we must NOT "over praised" him to much, and at the same time condemned your present YB Abu Seman for not doing "miracles" to these shop houses!
I doubt so much IF Wahab can transform Matu bazaar now, when he has ample of golden opportunity in the past 27 good years as adun & Menteri Muda & presently as MP, representing this area to do so!
Even as an MP, Wahab also failed his duty to speak representing his constituency in Parliament. As far as Hansards record is concerned, he only spoke twice in Parliament, i.e when he took oaths of allegiance to SPD Agong, as a parliamentarian.
Thereby create a vacant seat as an MP and probably a full-federal minister to represent the Kuala Rejang parliamentary constituency! In no time Wahab seized the opportunity, and went around these areas to pressed Pehin Taib to nominate him as a candidate in the forth coming parliamentary election. But Pehin Taib had his own idea on suitable candidate. Taib picked Effendi Norwawi (adun Dalat) to contest in Kuala Rejang parliamentary seat and there after appointed a full-minister! From there on wards Wahab turned 'asam payak", and listed Effendi Norwawi as his "adversary".

When state election was held in 2006, and the state constituency of Matu/Daro was split into 2 to create another new seat of N38 Jemoreng and N37 Daro. Being an MP, Wahab was advised not to defend his former seat of Matu/Daro, and thereby wanted to push his own nephew a former senior custom officer to become candidate, either in N37 Daro or N38 Jemoreng!
But for N38 Jemoreng seat, another local boy was interested to become full-pledged YB for the area and did his lobbying through his former university mate, Awang Tengah and with helping hand from Asfia to cable him with top brass in PBB. It seemed that Wahab was fighting alone to lobby this 2 seats for his nephew, and consequently, succumbed to pressure from the top that his candidate failed to fill up the vacant slots in his former state seat of Matu/Daro.
It was an open secret that Wahab blamed Asfia and Awang Tengah for scheming to dislodge his “chosen-candidate” from the list of the candidates to represent N37 Daro & N38 Jemoreng! Things are not so sweet between Wahab and Asfia thereafter. At one time, Wahab complained that Asfia didn’t do his job as YB for N36 Semop and even brought along TV3 to highlight his point that Pulau Bruit is under-developed under Asfia. Asfia being adun for N36 Semop, oh the other hand said that he alone should not be blamed, as an MP for the area, Wahab should also shoulder this responsibility to develop the area both of them represented!
When the next parliamentary election was held in 2008, a new parliament seat of Igan was created, which accommodates N37 Daro & N38 Jemoreng. Wahab was retain as BN candidate for Igan parliamentary seat, giving way to Norah to contest in parliament seat of Kuala Rejang (now Tanjung Manis).
But things didn’t work that way! Wahab creates his “very own” version of PBB Bahagian N38 Jemoreng in a meeting PBB Bahagian N38 Jemoreng at Kingwood Hotel in Mukah, by appointing Haji Nawawi Rabani as his Timbalan Ketua Bahagian PBB, leaving Abu Seman (Ibu Pejabat PBB appointed-Timbalan) in the cold!
Thus, PBB N38 Jemoreng nowadays, has 2 Timbalan Ketua Bahagian (Abu & Nawawi) and 2 sets of Jawatankuasa of PBB Kaum Bapa, Wanita PBB and Pemuda PBB. But it seems that Ibu Pejabat PBB or the PBB President is silent on this, for whatever reasons that no one knows!
Logically, PBB doesn’t exist in N38 Jemoreng anymore. It seems now that N38 Jemoreng seats is open for all, if Pehin Taib does not intervene now or before this coming election. The voters of N38 Jemoreng wants Taib to spell out clearly once and for all who will be the rightful candidate for the area and most importantly, which set of Jawatankuasa Bahagian PBB is legitimate in N38 Jemoreng at this moment?
