President Rodrigo Duterte has accused the Commission on Audit (COA) of delaying the implementation of certain government projects because of the findings it issues.

Duterte on Monday (December 3) said he will seek a dialogue with COA chairman Michael Aguinaldo about the eay the agency has been doing its job.

“The Philippines has been known as a country which does not honor contractual obligations. And yet, COA, if you are listening now, should be reasonable and sane enough to know that in the — in our Constitution, impairment of the obligation of contracts are not allowed,” he said during the lighting ceremony of the Christmas tree at Malacañang grounds.

“So instead of rendering an opinion that blocks the project, why don’t you just invent if you have to? Find the words to allow the investments here because we need the money. And there are lots of people without jobs,” he added.

Duterte, however, did not elaborate on the government projects whose implementation hit a snag because of COA.

The President has been critical of the way COA has been performing its duties.

In September, he joked that the Commission on Audit (COA) auditor in Ilocos Norte should be pushed down the stairs so he would be unable to report on the local government’s transactions.
