Paging House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.

Concerned government officials must be accountable for their bungling
the country’s hosting of the Southeast Asian Games, former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay insisted in defense of public criticisms against them.

Hilbay took to Twitter to rally the nation not to allow these officials to make nationalism an excuse for alleged incompetence and corruption.

“Hindi pambabastos sa sariling bansa ang punahin ang mga kapalpakan sa #SEAGames2019. We should not allow public officials (and their troll armies) to hide behind “nationalism” to justify their corruption and incompetence,” he tweeted.

“Iba ang pagmamahal sa bayan sa pagsopla sa mga kurakot,” he added.

Cayetano, head of the organizing committee of the SEA Games, has drawn flak for the poor preparations for the sports tournament some visiting athletes suffered logistics problems. He has apologized to the four international football teams for the inconvenience upon arrival for the games.
