Walang VIP treatment! Vico Sotto doesn’t want seniors to wait for him to get cash gift

Senior citizens in Pasig City no longer have to wait for hours to receive their P3,000 cash gift for Christmas.

Mayor Vico Sotto doesn’t demand to be present when representatives of the Office of Senior Citizen Affairs (OSCA) distribute the cash gift to senior citizens.

“Kahit pag dumarating ako, hindi tumitigil ang releasing ng 3,000 peso #cashgift,” he said in a Facebook post.

Sotto said that while he wants to visit all barangays where the cash gift distribution was taking place, time simply wasn’t enough.

“Kanina, dumating ako sa San Antonio ng mga 9am, patapos na sila. Sa Malinao naman, mga 10am, halos wala na ring tao. Sa Napico, mas malaki ang populasyon kaya may naabutan pa ako, pero nakakatuwa dahil masaya lahat at hindi ganun kahaba ang pila,” he shared.

Sotto, however, said what’s more important than his presence is that senior citizens get their cash gift in time for Christmas.
