Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong admitted that sometimes it is hard to tell the truth.
The Baguio politiko made the remark during a recent workshop on campus journalism.
“Sometimes it is difficult to tell the truth because of the consequences and implications,” Magalong said.
“But at the end of the day, the truth will set us free,” he added.
Magalong said that dishonesty and the lack of truthfulness lead to many problems in society.
“Without this foundation, magkakaroon tayo ng malaking problema,” he said.
