Political Secretary to the Chief Minister Ripin Lamat had made a wise decision to make use of JASA to paint a bad picture about Datuk Aidin Wing.
He knew that the top leaders would receive reports from JASA on Datuk Aidin Wing's performance as well as the political scenario in the Lambir constituency.
Ripin Lamat should be given a pat on the back of his shoulder for the success in convincing JASA to give feedbacks to the top leaders that the constituents were not happy with Datuk Aidin Wing; and the constituency would fall into the hand of oppositions if Datuk Aidin Wing was to be renominated as the candidate.
He also managed to give an impression to JASA that he would be the most suitable candidate to replace Datuk Aidin Wing who is the Secretary General of SABERKAS which is headed by Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Abang Haji Openg.
Thanks to JASA, Ripin Lamat, who always claimed that he is Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Awang Ali Hassan's man when he is lobbying for contracts, was announced yesterday as the BN candidate for Lambir.
However, it would be interesting to see whether he could make PBB members, especially supporters of Datuk Aidin Wing, to rally around him for the sake of retaining the seat for PBB in the election.
Good luck Ripin Lamat.
