Sorry na po! Gov Marcos, board members apologizes to Fariñas

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos and members of the provincial board have apologized to Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas for declaring him persona non grata.

The other resolution slammed the ‘tyranny’ of the House for conducting a probe ‘in aid of political ambition.’

But after the House committee on good government and public accountability threatened to cite the Ilocos Norte politikos in contempt, Marcos said she will ask the provincial board to withdraw the resolutions.

“I will propose that in their next session, it be withdrawn with apologies. I think we were all inflamed with concern and worry, and as a result, are very, very sorry that this may, in some way or another, offended or interfered in the operations of the House,” Marcos said.

After apologizing, Fariñas said he will forgive the Ilocos Norte officials.

“Let this serve as a warning to all other entities to respect also the proceedings of the House because a repetition of such an offense will be dealt with more severely by the House,” he said.

Fariñas initiated the House probe into the alleged misuse of Ilocos Norte tobacco funds.
