An opposition leader has called on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to the heed the advice of Musa Hitam and go on leave pending the completion of investigations by the special task force.
The DAP stalwart was responding to Musa, who said Najib had three options with regard to the current situation, which were to: (i) remain in office and fight the allegations; (ii) resign as prime minister; or (iii) go on leave pending investigations.
Musa (photo), who was a former deputy president of Umno, said the party is in a state of denial over its leadership problems.
Musa served as deputy prime minister from 1981 to 1986 when Dr Mahathir Mohamad was spearheading the government.

In the 1960s, Musa was briefly Acting Secretary-General of UMNO. He was later expelled from the party in the wake of the May 13 racial rioting for insubordination to then Prime Minister and UMNO President Tunku Abdul Rahman. During his political exile, he obtained his Master's from the University of Sussex.
In 1971, he was readmitted to UMNO under the Tunku's successor, Tun Abdul Razak. He rose quickly, becoming Deputy Whip of the Alliance coalition in Parliament, and was elected as a member of the UMNO Supreme Council.
He was elected as a UMNO Vice-President in 1978.
Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah joined the fray, and his main opposition was Musa Hitam. Eventually, Musa won the election with 722 votes to Razaleigh's 517 votes, becoming the new Deputy President and Deputy Prime Minister.
