Bam Aquino admits no free tuition fee bill passed after all

Dec 18, 2016 @ 14:00

After being called out on social media, Sen. Paolo Benigno Aquino IV finally admitted he had nothing to do with the free tuition in state colleges and universities in 2017.

In a press release his office issued on Sunday, Aquino admitted his bill to provide free tuition in SUCs has not been passed at all.

“We’re hoping we can pass this by February or March in time for June school year at para libre na ang college tuition every school year,” the press release quoted him as saying.

But he still claimed many senators are “supporting” his bill for “libreng tuition fee.”

On Saturday, netizens twitted Aquino for claiming credit for the P8.3 billion the Senate realigned to provide free tuition in SUCs.

The Senate moved to realign the P8.3 billion after Sen. Panfilo Lacson found the amount as pork in the Department of Public Works and Highways’ budget.

    Higit na dapat pasalamatan pala si Sen. Lacson dahil sa nangyaring realignment.

    Pahiya naman ang mga DILAWAN nito. Palbhasa kasi mabilis lang kayo sa credit grabbing pero ang kukupad naman ninyo sa pagresolba ng mga problema ng bansa!

    Ang FREE Education para sa State Colleges and Universities ay
    kabilang sa Platapormang ipinangako ni President Duterte nung Election
    at iyun ay kanyang isasakatuparan next year sa pamamagitan ng
    pagdadagdag ng 8 Billion Pesos Budget sa Education.

    Iyun namang
    Senate Bill na sinasabing ipinapanukala ni Bam Aquino ay panukala pa
    lang at marami pang deliberations na mangyayari bago iyun maipasa sa
    Senado.

    Kung kayat hindi maaaring angkinin ni Bam Aquino kung magbigay ng Free Education
    para sa State Collages and Universities ng ating Pangulo dahil
    tinutupad lang niya ang kanyang ipinangako nung Election gaya ng pangako
    niya na magbibigay ng libreng Irrigation sa mga magsasaka at mga Bangka
    sa ilang mga Mangingisda.

    Magbibigay pa ng libreng gamot sa mga mahihirap next year ang Duterte
    Admin maliban pa sa madaragdagan na ng 1k ang matatanggap ng mga
    pensiyonado next year na hindi inaprubahan nun nI Benigno Aquino III.
