"If I want to know the secrets of the kitchen, I have repeatedly pointed out to Mr. Anies, I was told that my children are millennial generation, generation Now times, "This gentleman is looking for his representative, Pak Prabowo, who has kicked his name Anies Baswedan", said Amien during a speech on the twentieth anniversary of PAN in the Senopati area, South Jakarta, Thursday (8/23).
Amien said that he had handed the case directly to Anies in the town hall, but Anies actually refused and had to complete his duties as governor of DKI Jakarta over the next five years.
"He has actually made a jihad to complete his assignment in DKI to Pak Prabowo if asked," Amien said.
Amien told Anies and Sandiaga who were now officially nominated by Prabowo to accompany him as the future vice president at the upcoming presidential election.
Not only that, Amien also told about his company that the famous clergyman from Riau Ustaz wanted to perform Abdul Somad (UAS) becomes Prabowo & # 39; s deputy in the presidential election. But again his attempts failed because he was again rejected by the person he fought for.
Even so, Amien claimed to be grateful and felt that the name of the password he had never fought for had been chosen by Prabowo because he said that if Prabowo was right alongside UAS there would be a verse war, hadith, and Al Quran that would be leveling and sinking of the nation led. Given that Jokowi Ma & # 39; ruf Amin had chosen as his representative.
"But when this password was chosen, it is clear that our God gracefully accepts," Amien said.
Zulkifli Hasan opens secret
