Vice President Leni Robredo said the resignation of Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong as contact tracing czar is “a good example” to all public servants.
The Baguio politiko submitted his irrevocable resignation after he admitted that he and his wife attended the birthday of social media personality Tim Yap.
But Malacañang said it is not accepting Magalong’s resignation.
“Dapat ganito ang response ng public officials na nalalagay sa ganitong sitwasyon,” Robredo said.
“Kapag ganito ang ating public officials, ‘yung respeto ng tao sa institution mabu-boost. Napakagandang example nito,” she added.
