Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris has called for the Youth and Sports Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, to stop coming up with excuses regarding the latter’s statement on the cost of repairing the field at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, which is said to be a whopping RM10 million!
Earlier, TMJ appeared to question the overall budget needed to build the new field. He stated that the cost was too high, as he only needed RM1.4 million to build a field using Zoysia grass at the Sultan Ibrahim Stadium, which is complete with a piping system, drainage, soil, among others.
Following this, Ahmad Faizal later claimed that he might had given the wrong info to TMJ. In this case, he explained that the RM10 million budget he proposed covers the cost of repairing football fields across the nation, including the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
That being said, TMJ, who’s also the owner of the football club Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT), continued to put the former Perak MB on blast. He could be seen leaving a reply on a post shared by @malayantigerfans IG page, saying, “I had many witnesses that night. When I asked how much is the budget for the SNBJ field, he said 10 million. So, don’t change the story.”
So far, Ahmad Faizal has yet to give his comments on the recent allegation made by the Johor Prince.
