A letter implicating Osman Jamal awarding Corak Nakhoda Sdn Bhd a 20,000 acres plot of land in Tongod in 1997 has recently gone viral on social media.
Corak Nakhoda has three company Directors, one of them being Musa Aman, while the Department of Lands and Survey was then headed by Osman Jamal.
Apart from having a financial interest in Corak Nakhoda, Musa Aman also happened to be the Chairman of Yayasan Sabah at the same time, before resigning in March 1999 to contest under the UMNO ticket in Sungai Sibuga.
In the recent “COVID-katak” fiasco in July 2020, Osman Jamal, better known as OJ, became one of the 13 “frogs” who quit the ruling Warisan Sabah State Government to declare support for Musa Aman.
The Sabah State Assembly was subsequently dissolved to pave way for elections.
Osman Jamal who is also the incumbent Balung State Assemblyman has since been on a tirade criticising Shafie’s administration for handing out individual native titles to deserving Sabahan villagers.
