PUTATAN : Upko Treasurer-General Datuk Dr Marcus Mojigoh on Tuesday denied he will be joining former party Deputy President Datuk Wilfred Bumburing and align himself with opposition Pakatan Rakyat.
"I am still loyal to the party and Barisan Nasional," he said at a moreh (contribution) presentation ceremony to representatives of 11 mosques and surau in his constituency at his Parliamentary Liaison Office in Duvanson here.
"I feel very sad. He is a good friend of mine so I respect his decision and I wish all the best to them," he said.
The Putatan MP also said it was also the right of his Beaufort colleague, Datuk Lajim Ukin to make a similar decision.
Two weeks ago, Bumburing who is Tuaran MP and Lajim publicly announced their allegiance to Pakatan Rakyat in the presence of its de facto leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in Tuaran and Beaufort, respectively.
"We cannot call him a traitor because our country runs on democracy."
Meanwhile Mojigoh said as far as he is concerned he would not be lobbying to be the candidate in the coming election.
