Nilimas lahat! Vico Sotto shows office of local exec he fired

0 936

Some local officials of Pasig City are resistant to the campaign for good governance being pushed by Mayor Vico Sotto.

The mayor shared on Facebook the empty office of a city hall official he fired for “some questionable practices and abusive behavior.”

Sotto said the empty space, which only had the aircon left, showed that some people treat government properties like their own.

“We are giving everyone a chance. Some of the most successful transitions in LGUs have come with minimal changes in personnel. But we will deal with the abusive as they deserve, and with the full force of the law,” he said.

In the comments section, Sotto said they are having difficulty accounting for the items taken by the dismissed official because there is no proper inventory of items owned by the city government.

“Di malinaw saan dinala ang milyon-milyong (o bilyong) kagamitan. Ni walang sticker at number karamihan ng mga kagamitan sa mga opisina kaya ang hirap i-trace pag nawala,” he said.

Despite the challenges, Sotto is unfazed and urged the public to continue to report alleged instances of corruption to his office.
