Speculation rife that Jeff Ooi to quit as chief of staff
By TAN SIN CHOW
GEORGE TOWN: Speculation is rife that prominent blogger Jeff Ooi is quitting his position as chief of staff to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
Ooi did not deny the speculation when asked, but pointed out that when he agreed to the post last March, he had made a pact with Lim that the appointment would be only for one year, or “once the (state) administration is on the right track.”
Ooi, also the Jelutong Member of Parliament, refused to comment further.
If he does resign, he would be the second person from the Penang Pakatan Rakyat state administration to resign within a week.
On Saturday, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin had tendered his resignation as deputy chief minister I and state executive councillor effective April 8.
