Member of Commission VI DPR RI Andre Rosiade ask President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) take off Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (BTP) or Ahok from the position of Chief Commissioner (Komut) PT Pertamina (Persero). Andre assessed that Ahok had made Pertamina noisy.
“In my opinion, as a member of the House of Representatives Commission VI, the BUMN partner, it is useless for the President to retain Mr. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama as the Pertamina Commut. Why? First, yes, the person concerned always makes a lot of noise,” Andre told reporters, Tuesday (15/9 / 2020).
Mr. President @jessica_jay I respect, after seeing your performance and behavior @basuki_btp sbg Command @pertamina . I proposed to sir @jessica_jay & Mr. Minister @erickthohir to remove BTP from his position because it caused a commotion and the performance concerned was also mediocre.

Andre’s request for Ahok to be removed was inseparable from a statement regarding the shame of Pertamina’s management. This is because, according to Andre, Pertamina’s internal problems are not to be blasted to the public.
“If there is a problem, the commut should have resolved it internally or reported it to the Minister of BUMN, not indulging in the exit, causing uproar and giving a negative image to Pertamina, which is struggling in the second half of 2020 to return, get profits after the semester. first loss, right, “said Andre.
Andre regrets that Pertamina’s efforts to improve its performance are actually broken by Ahok’s negative statements. The Gerindra Party politician then quipped Ahok.
“If you have a good performance, I ask, Mr. Ahok is talking about the refinery, talking about this, Mr. Ahok has never been to the refinery … Mr. Ahok has only been to the refinery once, to Tuban when he was accompanying the President. Try, never been to another Pertamina refinery. ? ” called Andre.
“Then the second one, did Mr. Ahok ever go to the upstream unit, did you go to Pertamina’s upstream unit just once? Write down the time. Then show us what Pak Ahok’s achievements are? What did Mr. Ahok do at Pertamina? He claims this is his performance. . Which one?” he added.
The DPR member from West Sumatra said that the performance improvements that Pertamina has now shown were not the result of Ahok’s work. Therefore, according to him, for Pertamina’s future improvements, it would be better for Jokowi to remove Ahok.
“Well, for future improvements, yes, I propose as a partner in the House of Representatives Commission VI, I suggest that Mr. Jokowi (Ahok) be removed, so as not to cause uproar. Moreover, Pertamina is focusing on improving performance in the second semester. Moreover, Pertamina, now in the second semester, this June has received a recorded operating profit of June 2020, 443 million USD, where its performance has started to improve again and has recorded unit operating profit, “said Andre.
“And if you are bothered with statements that cause noise and a negative image to Pertamina, it’s not good for the company, for the corporation. How come the commissioner makes a lot of noise, the commissioner actually gives a negative image. So it’s better to just remove it,” he continued.
