Gaano ba katagal pumirma? Poe slams MMDA chair Danny Lim for skipping Senate probe for MOA signing
Senator Grace Poe expressed dismay at Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairperson Danilo Lim Monday (August 13) for snubbing the Senate hearing on Metro Manila’s traffic problem.
Poe, chair of the Senate committee on public services which conducted the hearing, said Lim confirmed his attendance but didn’t show up.
MMDA general manager Jojo Garcia said Lim begged off because he had to attend the signing of a memorandum of agreement. The event, he added, can’t be rescheduled.
But when asked for details of the MOA signing, Garcia admitted he didn’t know. His response irked Poe further.
“Hindi n’yo nga alam kung sino yung kasamang pipirma, ano ba naman yung pirmahan ng limang minuto at pumunta dito,” she said.
Poe said Lim can’t escape facing the committee since she will call for another hearing to hear his side, as well as the other resource persons who were absent.
