A SINGAPOREAN envoy’s courtesy visit to Najib Razak’s home is fuelling speculation that the disgraced former prime minister could have a major role in the new Ismail Sabri Yaakob government.
The former prime minister had posted a picture of him with Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia Vanu Gopala Menon yesterday.
“Hopefully the relationship between Malaysia and Singapore will remain strong in the current economic situation,” he wrote in the post.
“Policies and connectivity between the two countries that benefit investors, efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic… must be further enhanced.”

The meeting between the prime minister and with the high commissioner have further fuelled speculation that Najib will be made an economic adviser to the cabinet.
