Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has triggered Twitter fury over the alleged use of government resources to propel his senatorial bid in next year’s elections.

The latest online uproar was triggered by the photos of the President’s assistant splattered on the new UP-PGH Malasakit Center cards as well as tarpaulins placed in the facility that reek of alleged early campaigning.

One of the concerned citizens was Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano who asked the University of the Philippines-Manila officials over the inappropriate use of government funds to back Go’s political ambition.

“UP Manila, wala ba kayong nakitang inappropriate dito? You are using govt funds, remember,” Alejano tweeted.

@fateundermined tweeted: “And Bong Go really has to be in the cards? Didn’t they use public funds for this? Campaign materials pretending to be support for those in need.”

@IamSuperCis commented: “Aral kay #GMAIsEvil
Parang PhilHealth Cards naman ang pinamudmod nila noon.”
