More goodies for KT folks

More goodies are coming your way, Kuala Terengganu folks!!

Is this what people mean when they talk of durian runtuh?

 

KUALA TERENGGANU, Jan 13 (Bernama) — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the people of Terengganu can possibly enjoy oil royalty of RM3 billion annually should there be a rise in the market price of fuel.

He said the Terengganu government should utilise the oil royalty well and, at the same time, the people of the state should be thankful for it.

Najib, who is also the finance minister, said the pledge of the federal government to return the oil royalty to the people of Terengganu had been fulfilled.

“I have handed over a cheque for RM408.6 million in oil royalty to (Terengganu) Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said. This reflects our sincerity.

“Next year, if the fuel price rises, the people of Terengganu will be more fortunate. They will get between RM1.6 billion and RM3 billion. Just imagine the good fortune of the people of Terengganu coming as God’s blessings. The other east coast states, Kelantan and Pahang, do not receive this reward enjoyed by the people of Terengganu,” he said.

Najib spoke at the presentation of excellence awards of the Kuala Terengganu City Council. Also present at the event were his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Menteri Besar Ahmad and Kuala Terengganu mayor Datuk Mat Razali Kassim.

The deputy prime minister said the federal government had never questioned the Terengganu government on how it spent the oil royalty.

“We must use well what we get. Praise be to God. The menteri besar has informed me what he wanted to do with the money. My request to him was to use the money for the well-being of the people.

“I asked him to adhere to the principle of development projects; they must be people-friendly. Implement whatever brings prosperity and benefit for the people.

“This is additional good fortune. We will not question the Terengganu government so long as it does things for the people’s benefit,” he said.

Najib said that to ensure that the Terengganu government income did not decrease when the revenue from oil was no longer available, the government had in principle approved the establishment of the Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA) to handle investment of the oil royalty with a launching capital of RM10 billion.

He said the TIA, a brainchild of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, who is the Sultan of Terengganu, would be managed by professionals.

He said the authority would utilise the oil royalty to make investments in the country and abroad through the bond market to ensure continuity of income for the state government.

Najib said the government wanted to see Terengganu develop like the west coast states and that many changes had been brought about since 2004 and that the transformation process would continue.

He cited the upgrading of the Sultan Mahmud International Airport to enable Boeing 747 aircraft to use the facility as one of the changes, saying pilgrims could now fly from Kuala Terengganu direct to Jeddah.

“God willing, the new highway will be ready soon. We fulfill our promises,” he said.

He said the government was sincere in helping the people and fulfilled its promises, unlike the opposition which only made promises.

“We open supplementary classes, others close kindergartens. We build two mosques, others build mosques but only the framework remains. They promise to remove the quit rent when in power, but this has yet to be done.

“They wanted to form the (federal) government on Sept 16 but the Barisan Nasional (BN) government remains in power. Let’s not get spellbound by these promises, especially during election time,” he said.

    Now let me see what 1.5 billion can do for me and my family.
    a) I can deposit 1 billion in a swiss account and get about 5% annual return, you know a swiss account is the best as they will keep your acount as confidential as possiible. which after four years of interests will amount to about another 200 million, wow that’s a lot of dough.
    b) I can buy all the latest luxury cars in the market
    c) Build for me and my family a couple of huge, huge palaces, I have always wanted to retire in London well maybe I’ll build a retreat there.
    d) Go round the world a couple of times, stay at the most expensive hotels in the world eat the most expensive food.
    e) Send my childen to the most prestigious school in the world although they are stupid and won’t achieve anything but what does it matter I have the money and power man!!!
    f) Hmm I’ll maybe buy myself a full set of luxury cars and keep them in my retreat in London
    g) Give my children each 100 million for them to spend in their future in case I should die earlier than expected
    h) Give to all my relatives each a milion but not to my second cousin who support PAS, well maybe just a second hand waja will do, just to show my relatives that I am a very fair person.
    i) Give my party members each about 10K this will keep them all happy, now let me calculate how much this might amout to. Say 200 party members at 10k each it will amount to about 2 million well that isn’t much, hell I can afford that. You know what I mean, just to keep them happy these idiots when they receive their 10k each they will kiss my hand every time they meet me now wouldn’t that be great.
    Now let me think what else can I do with this “wang ehsan”? ah yes now I remember I will make a few kenduris in my new house and invite the poor, the orphans to come and do some “tahlil” and donate, say ahhhh 5k to their cause and organization and these people will say that I am a very generous man, what a laugh, now if it is my own money I surely would not depart with it.
    Hand phone rings, salam yeah, yes, apa kamu nak saya derma untuk surau baru kamu di kampung …, derma, boleh, write out a 5k cheque, invite the press ansd insist they take a few photographs and make sure that they print it in the press the following day. What an idea and what a publicity. Surely the federal people in KL will think that I am handling the state’s wang ehsan very well heh heh heh………
    Now what else, I hear 100 million there just to play safe in case we lose the coming GE.
    My children they each want a house in New York, London, Paris, Sydney, Vienna, Milan, Madrid and Geneva. well what am I suppose to do? deny them their request? of course not It’s sort of an investment for them too… you know what I mean, you people out there those who are parents. of course, you would not deny your children’s request, would you? it’s so hard to please them kids these days but what the hack it’s just money. I’ll negotiate with their real estate agents to get a fair price for them. Again I might need to cough out about 50 million for their holiday houses.
    Will stop now. will write again when I think of something else to spend the “wang ehsan” on… hah hah hah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
