KOTA BARU (Oct 16): The resignation of Lembaga Tabung Haji chairman Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof has nothing to do with political pressure, according to Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Ahmad Marzuk Shaary.

He said such allegations were not true as although the chairman who resigned was appointed when Pakatan Harapan (PH) was the government, there was no change even when Perikatan Nasional took over under former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“We look at this based on the current situation and strategic planning that require other expertise to move Tabung Haji forward faster," he told reporters after attending Tabung Haji's food bank contribution ceremony here on Saturday.

On Friday, Tabung Haji in a statement announced that Md Nor had resigned as its chairman.
