“Bago ho ako magsalita, huwag ko lang ho palampasin, kasi I was really bothered if not alarmed by the statement of Usec. Tim Orbos na, p*tang ina naghabal-habal siya,” Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said in his speech during the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the Interoperability of Toll Collection Systems.
Transportation Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Thomas Orbos is also the General Manager of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
Orbos said just to reach the event on time he was forced to ride a habal-habal but later on explained it was a motorcycle.
“Bawal ho ang habal-habal sa kalsada at lalong I will not tolerate making a function in DOTr as an excuse to use habal-habal,” Tugade said. “I don’t like it Mr. Orbos.”
“We should not, at all cost, allow nor encourage the use of habal-habal,” Secretary Tugade said. “Itong pinaghihirapan nating interoperability subukan mo lagyan ng habal-habal, kung hindi bumagal nang bumagal ‘yan at naperwisyo pa ‘yung kabuhayan at buhay ng mga tao.”
“I’m sorry, I just have to say that, that is not along line and paradigm of the government functions and governance we have to do as Department of Transportation,” he noted.
