A number of social media users today hit out at Noraini Ahmad’s reappointment as higher education minister despite her resignation earlier this month as part of efforts to force Muhyiddin Yassin to step down as prime minister.
The Parit Sulong MP had taken to Twitter to thank Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob for reappointing her to the position in his Cabinet.
She also pledged to carry out her duties to the best of her abilities in line with the Malaysian Family concept.
“Haish, same old portfolio, the results will surely be the same too,” Twitter user Bryan Foo wrote on the social media platform.
Others urged the Wanita Umno chief to resign again.
“Do you think you fulfilled your previous duties as well as you could have?” asked Kakak Mongka.
“Just resign, YB,” said another user called Lennon.
Still others called on her to reduce the cost of tuition fees for higher education and to speed up the vaccination process for students and staff at institutes of higher learning.
“Please push for our fees to be reduces, and for staff members and students to be vaccinated befoew allowing face-to-face lectures to resume next semester,” said user Shfarin.
“I am worried about the mental health of students and lecturers.”
Noraini resigned as higher education minister on Aug 6, saying she would abide by the directive of the Umno Supreme Council to revoke her support for Muhyiddin and his Perikatan Nasional government.
