May masisisi! Isko Moreno says Erap to blame for Manila’s poor ‘housekeeping’ score

0 331

Mayor Isko Moreno is not that heartbroken to learn that Manila did not get the coveted Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping in 2019.

The politiko said it was out of his control as he only took the helm of the city in July last year. He was quick to attribute the poor performance to his predecessor and ex-running mate Erap Estrada.

“This was already expected. The DILG told us this is due to the past administration’s failure to comply with full disclosure of financial documents in‌ 2018 and first quarter of 2019,” Moreno said.

“This is an opportunity for us to do better, that we will not tolerate this kind of dismal performance. It’s not happening under my watch. I have already convened the local finance committee for us to work and fix the past administration’s mess.”
