Felda Global Ventures Bhd (FGV) chairperson Mohd Isa Abdul Samad has dismissed calls for him to resign.
“Why should I resign? It wasn’t me who did wrong,” he told a press conference at the Federal Land Authority (Felda) headquarters in Kuala Lumpur this morning.
He was responding to Umno supreme council member Mohd Puad Zakarshi’s call for both Isa and FGV chief executive officer Zakaria Arshad to resign over the current crisis.
Puad had said Isa and Zakaria should both resign following the FGV board’s decision to suspend Zakaria, as the duo are unlikely to ever work together again and must be separated.
He said the spat between the two would result in a trust deficit in FGV if left unchecked, which would cause FGV’s share prices to plummet.
In response, Zakaria had indicated yesterday that he too would not resign because he had done no wrong.
