Mag resign ka na! Nancy Binay says UP official’s threat vs Ateneo players unacceptable


Senator Nancy Binay has called for the resignation UP Board of Regents member Frederick “Spocky” Farolan for threatening violence against Ateneo basketball players.

Binay said the UP officials must be the first to show the values of honor and excellence, adding it was unacceptable Farolon tried to incite violence amid the UAAP basketball tournament.

“Out of delicadeza and out of love for UP, it is best for Regent Spocky Farolan to tender his resignation. He has put UP in a bad light twice. First was about UPCAT, and now the UAAP. #HonorAndExcellence #DangalAtHusay #BestAndTheBrightest,” she tweeted.

“University officials should be the first in putting into practice our values of Honor and Excellence. Kahit sa sports, Dangal at Husay pa rin ang dapat na binabandera ng UP. Kahit pa joke, it’s simply unacceptable for a UP official to make such offhand remarks that promote a culture of violence,” she added.
