Recently I was informed that questions were raised regarding the facilities of Johor Darul Ta’zim FC. Tan Sri, all stadiums in Johor indeed belongs to the Johor state government, and in turn, the government belongs to the Johor Royal Family that has existed since 1885. It means that it is His Majesty the Sultan of Johor’s prerogative on how to utilise all the state’s properties. Don’t compare this state with other states. Johor has existed before independence, with its own ways and constitution since 1885.
The state of Johor is also the stronghold of the ruling party today. The day for people to cast their votes is edging closer, so don’t stir up a hornet’s nest because there will be consequences. Tan Sri, don’t be a liability to your own party. You clearly have your own interest within the party. We are fully aware that you Tan Sri, built the Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) from the beginning thus you also need to be responsible for the KAFA’s failures and problems they’re facing today. Tan Sri, you shouldn’t be a captain who abandons his ship at the first sight of trouble. As you’ve barely managed to run KAFA properly, it’s better that you forget about leading Malaysian football. HRH Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor.
steadyaku47 comment : When HRH Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor has something to say…it is always “interesting”. I do not always agree with what he says…but what he says is always “interesting!”
Today I want to take issue with this Brigadier General on one point and one point only : His assertion that “all stadiums in Johor indeed belongs to the Johor state government, and in turn, the government belongs to the Johor Royal Family that has existed since 1885. It means that it is His Majesty the Sultan of Johor’s prerogative on how to utilise all the state’s properties”.
At the risk of getting this Brigadier General and some of the people in Johor upset, I would like to dispute that assertion.
The state government of Johor does NOT belong to the Johor Royal Family. The state government of Johor answers to the people of Johor who have elected their own representative to sit in the state assembly.
You, Brigadier General, or your father the Sultan, have not been elected by anybody in Johor to represent them.
Existing since 1885 does not make the Johor Royal Family owners of the Johor State Government. Many things have changed since 1885…..and one of those things that have changed is that the Royal Family of Johor no longer owns the Johor State Government….in fact I do not think that the Johor Royal Family had “owned” the Johor State government at any time between 1885 and 2017!
No Brigadier……I kid you not! With hand on my heart, I tell you Brigadier, the Johor State Government is not owned by the Johor Royal Family….and let us leave it at that. Kalau you want more information on what the Johor Royal Family own or does not own in Johor….I suggest you talk to your “Royal Advisors” who may or may not have the courage to tell you what I have just told you….
“THAT THE JOHOR STATE GOVERNMENT IS NOT OWNED BY THE ROYAL FAMILY OF JOHOR”
End of story.
