Mayor Vico announces sacking of Pasig exec on Facebook
MANILA, Philippines — Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has dismissed a city official over “questionable practices and abusive behavior.”
This is the room of one Office Head after i fired him. He was removed because of some questionable practices and abusive…
Sotto announced the official’s firing last Sunday(Aug. 18) in his official Facebook page where he posted photos of the dismissed official’s vacant office.
“This is the room of one office head after I fired him,” said Sotto on his Facebook page, without naming the sacked official.
“The pictures show how some people treat the government like their private property,” Sotto added.
Sotto said one of the difficulties his team faced during the transition was the poor inventory of the city’s government supplies.
“It’s not clear where equipment worth millions, or billions, went,” he said. “There are no stickers or numbers on pieces of equipment in offices so they’re hard to track if lost,” he said in Filipino.
Last month, Sotto ordered the inventory of the city’s government supplies after the Commission on Audit (COA) flagged P1.464 billion worth of materials unaccounted for in its 2018 annual audit report./TSB
