No presidential decision yet on Customs deputies’ resignations: Palace

4

 

President Benigno Aquino 3rd has not indicated whether he will let go of Customs Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence Danilo Lim and Deputy Commissioner for Internal Administration Group Juan Lorenzo Tañada, who have offered their resignations.
The deputy commissioners tendered their resignation after the President blasted the bureau for failing to curb smuggling during his State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.
Palace spokesman Edwin Lacierda said that President has taken no action on the resignation of Lim and Tañada.
“There is no action, official action, yet that has been relayed to us from the Office of the Executive Secretary,” he said.

    torn between two lovers nga si prez. between those who stood by him in his crusade against the villains of the past who are now the villains; and those who are w/ him in his daang matuwid. kahirap maging presidente, kabayan.

  2. Adding to the disgust of the people is PNoy’s deliberate omission of more controversial issues in his SONA ilike the pork barrel scam and the extortion try by officals of the Metropolitan Railway Transit under the DOTC. The latter scandal happened during the watch of Mar Roxas. Palace officials desperately reasoned out that the two scams are still under investigation so there is nothing definite to talk about it in his SONA, they chorused.

    To PNoy’s spokepersons, a question maybe asked, Was there any completed palace or any executive department investigations involving BOC, BID, and NIA? So,. what’s the difference?

  3. He conveniently chose his SONA as a forum to lambast BOC, BID, and NIA, In the case of NIA, he personally and contemptively critized Nangel and before ultimately firing him unceremoniously. Not content with his actions, he still included it in his SONA. In the case of BID, Ricardo David has already resigned his post before the SONA but of course it’s still included in his SONA for added effect.

    Strangely, in the case of BOC, he abruptly rejected Biazon’s melodramatic resignation and could not even decided with dispatch whether or not he will accept or reject the resignations of other official’s of the BOC. So, who was he directing his tantrums against the BOC, the lowly employees? Mind-boggling and incomprehensible.
