Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto said the local government’s scholars should not be indebted to politikos for subsidizing their studies.

In a tweet posted on Friday, November 6, Sotto said the scholarships come from public funds. He acknowledged that he feels uncomfortable whenever scholars thank him for the privilege.

“Laging tandaan na wala kayong utang na loob kahit kanino (lalo na sa politiko) dahil pera ito ng taumbayan. Na-a-appreciate ko naman kapag may nagpapasalamat sa kin pero naiilang ako dahil di ko pera to. Mag-aral lang kayo nang mabuti, sulit na ang investment ng Pasig sa inyo,” the mayor said.

Sotto met via Zoom with Pasig’s scholars to update them on developments about the city’s scholarship program.

He said some rules of the scholarship program have been relaxed due to the pandemic. The city government, he added, is also processing cash cards for the scholars’ stipend.
