PAO Chief Acosta On Senator Hontiveros‘ Call For Her To Resign: You First

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Senator Risa Hontiveros called for the resignation of Public Attorney’s Office chief Persida Acosta on Friday over the latter’s alleged “scaremongering” on vaccination. 

Hontiveros made the call amid an outbreak of measles in at least four regions in the country, which came following a dip in immunization coverage last year following the controversy on anti-dengue vaccine 

Speaking with The Adobo Chroniciles,  Acosta said she is more than willing to resign on one condition: that Hontiveros resign her Senator position first.

”At least, ako may ginagawa.  Si Hontiveros, puro lang dada,” she said. (At least I’m doing something, unlike Hontiveros who is all talk)

No word yet from Hontiveros on Acosta’s challenge.
