While I share Annie's confidence that Sime Darby is in good hands, having a politician at the helm of a GLC can be a bane. Isa Samad, the Umno veteran, is fast becoming one at Felda. His haste to put Emir Mavani Abdullah as CEO-designate seven months before the current one steps down has raised eyebrows and, unfortunately for Emir, opened a can of worms.
Now, apparently, there's a social media war taking place between pro-Umno bloggers. In one corner, you have Big Dog stripping Emir naked (and, in his latest post h e r e, biting Isa into pieces); in the other, you have others gunning down the existing CEO, Ahmad Sabri, to the ground in typical assassin fashion ie go after the wife (Sabri must go and retire from FGV).
It's all a lot of fun to read, but it also makes Felda a laughing stock. My advise to Isa, stop bringing politics into FGV. You now know that your man Emir is not a Dr Emir as claimed, question is how do you fix it? Telling the AGM that Emir hadn't know he was going to come back to Malaysia to serve is so lame.

|Khairil, anak Felda|
Dato' Bro Rocky’s Bru and others,
Leaders come and go, no matter what when it is time to be replaced and FGV need new leader who is really competent in all aspects. Felda has existed for a long time, then it's time for Felda especially FGV be led by Felda generation with proven and professional qualification, experienced, competent, creative, honest and most importantly those who knew Felda direction for a brighter future. If we have mentioned there are two Felda generation who are eligible to replace Tan Sri Dato’ Sabri as it CEO, namely, Datuk Khairul Anuar Abdul Aziz, second generation Felda from Felda Sg Klah currently served as COO of FGV and another candidate is Arshad Zakaria, CEO Delima Oil Products, we may forget or do forget about another Felda generation who was also successful in his career and is now serving as Vice President & Head of Group Procurement, FGV. He is currently in charge of procurement for Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad and Felda Holdings Limited and its Subsidiaries.
The 3rd candidate from Felda generation that the government and Felda should consider is Dato’ Ir Jamlus Aziz (see picture), son of Felda settler from Pasir Besar, Negeri Sembilan, an engineer by profession who was graduated from the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA. He also hold a Master Degree in Engineering Management from University Tenaga Nasional, a member to the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (MIEM) and Professional Engineer (P.Eng)., Board of Engineers,Malaysia. Thus, he can be considered as highly qualified professional engineer and proven with his vast experience and ability in managing RM4.5billion value project, 2 x 750MW CC Power Plant Rehabilitation (Tuanku Ja’afar Power Plant, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan) with TNB.
When we talk about working experience, Dato’ Ir Jamlus is a former member of state assembly of Negeri Sembilan served as Chairman, State Action committee in charge of water, telecommunication, rural development, youth and sport for Negeri Sembilan. Prior to that, he served Tenaga Nasional Berhad in various capacity and position for more than 15 years. He is also has good working experiences with GLC, government and private consultant company. Dato’ Ir Jamlus is currently one of the committee member for Alumni Asrama Semai Bakti, an NGO formed by ex student of Asrama Felda Malaysia. Besides, he was also the recipient of Felda National Youth Leadership Award awarded by the Prime Minister.
So, with no doubt, it is believed that with his vast experience, professional qualification, good health condition, independent in performing his task, no hidden agenda, good work ethic and have better vision for Felda as a whole and also the future of Felda Generation, Dato’ Ir Jamlus Aziz is more than eligible, qualified and suitable to lead the management of FGV as it Group CEO.
