Pinagbigyan na: Tugade gets CA’s nod despite admitting he can’t fix traffic woes ASAP
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade’s appointment to the Cabinet has been confirmed by the powerful Commission on Appointments despite criticism over the lack of improvement in the traffic situation in the country.
During the CA’s hearing Tuesday (Dec. 13), Tugade acknowledged his failure to solve the traffic woes but insisted it is a massive problem which needs more time to fix.
“Wala ho akong sinabi na in 100 days sosolvin ko ang problema ng trapiko, hindi ho ako ganyan kagaling. Ang problema ng trapiko ay hindi masosolusyunan overnight,” he said.
Tugade, however, promised to do his job well should his appointment be confirmed by the CA.
“I will assure the members of the CA, give me your trust and support and my way of gratitude, my way of saying thank you is…i will not fail you,” he said.
