Albay First District Congressman Edcel Lagman, in the Unang Hirit program at GMA-7 this morning, is calling on high ranking officials in the Aquino Administration, including Interior and Local Government Secretary, Jesse Robredo, to resign for the fiasco in the handling of the Manila Hostage taking. If they will not resign, then the President should remove them from office the way the President removed PAG-ASA official, Frisco Nilo, for the latter’s inefficiency in the weather bureau.
Sabi ni Lagman dapat may managot sa kapalpakan kasabay na diyan ang dai pag-pugol sa media sa live video kan inaaresto si SPO2 Gregorio Mendoza, an tugang kan hostage taker na si Capt. Rolando Mendoza; sa dai pag-pugol sa mga usyusero; sa dai pag-takeover o maski pagtao ki abiso sa ground commander lalo na sa implikasyon kaini sa standing kan Pilipinas sa international community. (Lagman said somebody should be axed for the fiasco which includes the failure to control the media for the live video feed of SPO2 Gregorio Mendoza, the brother of hostage-taker Capt. Rolando Mendoza; the failure to control the crowd/kibitzers; and for the failure to takeover or at least gave advice to the ground commander especially on the implications of the actions in the standing of the Philippines in the international community.)
