Rep. Jericho “Koko” Nograles defends self on netizens’ accusations
Not the Cause of NAIA Rehabilitation Delay
Rep. Jericho “Koko” Nograles said that he is a member of the economics committee. It is his job to scrutinize the transactions made because the budget is from the taxpayers. He is not the cause of the NAIA rehabilitation delay. Nograles vows to watch over any corruption for the welfare of the people.
Megawide Construction Corporation
Nograles said that Megawide is subsidized by the government. Megawide said that they submitted a plan to the government with their profit which is a standard for business. There’s no subsidy from the government. A netizen also said that Megawide is the only qualified company to do the NAIA rehabilitation. They are successful at the Mactan International Airport in Cebu. Perhaps, the congressman is not just supportive of President Rodrigo Duterte’s Build Build Build project based on Marcos’ blueprint. Thus, making pro-administration people furious.
Louie Ferrer of Megawide said that if Nograles finds any corruption in the project, he should legally file a complaint. The 109 Billion rehabilitation is only slightly better than the one in Cebu. The improvements are necessary because the airport is in the capital. Their company follows the proposal when it comes to spending. So, Nograles is welcome to check it out.
