Bawal epal! Isko Moreno orders removal of politikos’ names on school buildings
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has ordered the removal of politikos’ names– including his– from all public primary and secondary schools in the city.
Moreno issued the directive Tuesday during a meeting with officials of the City School Board.
He said schools should be spared from politicking.
“Walang epal sa pader ng eskwelahan. Walang epal sa mga basketball court, gymnasium na pinagawa ng mga pulitiko sa loob ng eskwelahan. Bawal ang epal. Tigilan na natin ‘yan,” Moreno said.
“Lahat ng mga naglalagay na pulitiko ng kanilang mga pangalan as if you are immortalizing yourself or as if it is your money, that is not your money. Pera yan ng taumbayan,” he added.
