QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo was all praises for Baguio City Mayor Benjie Magalong when he resigned as the Inter-Agency Task Force’s (IATF) Contact Tracing Czar after that embarrassing Tim Yap birthday party which he attended. The party was cited for violation of Covid health protocols mandated by the IATF.
Robredo said Magalong’s resignation was ‘admirable’ and a good example for public officials.
But then, Magalong later said that despite his “irrevocable” resignation, he would consider staying on as Contact Tracing Czar if President Rodrigo Duterte wants him to.
Today, Robredo did a complete turnaround and called Magalong “unadmirable.”
Moral of the story for Robredo: Don’t rush to judgment. Take a deep breath and count from 1 to 10 before issuing public statements.
