Tabuk City Mayor Darwin Estrañero slammed critics for supposed politicking over city hall’s purchase of allegedly overpriced thermal scanners and relief goods.
The thermal scanners and the relief goods were purchased amid the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
The Tabuk politiko said the accusations have no basis.
“We believe the accusations being repeatedly hurled against us on the alleged overpriced thermal scanners, relief goods among others are premature because the COA, the government agency tasked to audit purchases and other transactions, is still evaluating and assessing the same,” Estrañero said.
“There is still no substantial basis for the filing of the cases against us,” he added.
