Entry of ASF to the City must be an inside job - Calizo

“If those committing acts against the law are from within, (then) there’s nothing we could do to stop this corruption.”

This was pointed out by Councilor Romeo V. Calizo in reaction to the special report of Councilor Roger G. Abaday relative to his request for the concerned department of the City Government to strictly implement the appropriate measures in preventing the entry of ASF-infected hogs in the city.

While he concurs that the matter be referred to the Committee on Agriculture for appropriate action, the councilor, however, stressed that the issue of corruption should be dealt seriously, because “the effect of crime is very much felt if the criminal is from within.”

“Just like if there’s a holdup, it’s not easy to conduct a hold up on a bank if there is no inside job. Much so with the local government, og walay taga gobyerno nga magpasagad nga mosulod ang mga baboy nga dali-dali without the appropriate inspection di gyud na makasulod. That’s why there is now a challenge of our bureaucracy to see to it that, indeed, our people should be trustworthy enough that they’re performing their job,” Calizo further said.
