Tao ko yan! Erap plays ninong to Manila engineer appointed as DPWH exec
He felt like a stage father and ninong all in one.
Former President now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada went to witness the oath-taking ceremony of Engineer Roberto Bernardo as undersecretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Estrada looked on like a proud ninong as Bernardo took his oath before DPWH Secretary Mark Villar. Estrada has grown fond of him as he previously served as City Engineer for Manila, and has helped the politiko craft new projects for the capital.
It must be a bittersweet feeling to see Bernardo head off to a new post.
