It has been made known of the tragic incident, and also the resignation of MRT Corp CEO. The news as follows:
PETALING JAYA: MRT Corp CEO Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid has resigned over Monday night’s construction site accident in Kota Damansara that claimed three lives.
“As of tomorrow, I am no longer the CEO,” he told a press conference at the site here Tuesday.
Azhar said he had always been very strict over safety measures at MRT sites but such incidents had occurred over and over again.
“I have done my best, but I have evidently failed and therefore will be handing over my duties.“I was told that some security measures were not followed by the sub-contractors and if that really is the case, I will make sure MRT Corp never works with them again,” he said.
He said that despite his departure from the company, he would see the case through and ensure that the families of the deceased be given justice.
Three Bangladeshi workers were killed when a concrete span at the site collapsed at 8.30pm.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that MRT Corp’s stakeholder relations and land management director Haris Fadzilah Hassan would take over until the Government appoints a new CEO.
From the news, some factions called this move as a proof of “INTEGRITY”.
Yes, maybe.. or maybe not. The definition or recognition can defer, depends on situation. (NOTE: and by this, it also does not mean I say the Datuk Azhar has no integrity). It is not for me to call it, not for me to judge.
What interest me more is the comparison that some have made. Yes, in terms of what the Datuk Azhar has done versus MAS CEO, versus current MB Selangor and in my view, how about YOUR job?
As the title suggest, will any of resignation done can solve the problem? If yes, GOOD. What if not?
Just for the purpose of discussion, let us look at the content of this news. He said, “I was told that some security measures were not followed by the sub-contractors and if that really is the case, I will make sure MRT Corp never works with them again,”.
OK, if by his resignation and future role can ensure “them” not working with MRT, I supposed it is okay. The question is.. HOW?
The answer is pretty much subjective. There is no simply right or wrong. Yes, one can say the new person can do what the previous can’t do, but at certain extent, there is no guarantee.
So, my question to dear readers is this…
If let say there was a mistake or a problem, considerably large.. and you are one of the focus point of the mistake or problem, will you quit your job?
Have you done any admitting of mistakes or cause of problem and quitting yourself?
In regards to the title of this article,
- if you are the new MRT Corp CEO, what will you do?
- if you are the new MAS CEO, what will you do?
- if you are the new MB Selangor, what will you do?
- if someone else take over your job after you quit, what do you think he/she will do to make it better?
