Guv explains collapse
of river control project


Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo yesterday defended himself against criticisms over the collapse of the river control project in Ajong, Sibulan town, during typhoon Queenie last week, saying nobody can control destruction from nature’s attacks.

The project was constructed using the controversial calamity fund, and could not be completed because the Department of Budget and Management withdrew the other half of the funds for it.

Degamo said the project is only 75.34 percent complete because the second fund release was held in abeyance in spite of his pleadings before the DBM.
