E-mail Print PDF


(CEBU CITY- Public Information Office) - Mayor Michael L. Rama expressed his happiness about the approval of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system which would help ease traffic congestion in the city without sacrificing heritage sites. The mayor stressed the importance of preserving the city’s heritage wherein he constantly opposed to modes of transportation or structures that would greatly affect historical sites. Besides the BRT, Mayor Rama also considers other modes of transportation and is looking into the possibility of reviving the old Philippine railway system. “Maybe we should have a train, and will ask CITOM and other government agencies to check the route of the old railway and make an inventory of what still exists,” mayor Rama said. The Philippine Railway started operating in 1911 and ceased operations in 1942 during the Japanese occupation. It runs from Danao in the northern part of Cebu to CarCar and Argao in the south.

Sec. Coloma apologizes offended by earlier statement, express optimism that national government will help rebuild CCMC
(By. Eli T.Espina, PIO Staff)

Cebu City PIO - Presidential Communication Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma clarified the statement attributed to him through media reports that the national government will not help in the construction of Cebu City Medical Center (CCMC) that was damaged by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake last year. 

201He also apologized to those offended by his earlier statement that the city government should tap the private sector to finance the project since budget of the Department of Health is not sufficient to fund all health-related concerns, including the reconstruction of CCMC. 

“hindi ko po sinasabing hindi tutulongan nang national government (referring to CCMC) kasi syempre gusto po nating makatulong... the national government is the government of all Filipinos so wala pong discrimination ang ating gobyerno so lilinawin ko lang po.” Coloma said

Speaking during an open forum at the 21st RADIO-7 Consultative Conference and 1st Regional Information Summit held yesterday June 9, 2014 at the Elizabeth Hotel, Coloma said that there is no discrimination or biases in the national government in extending help in the rebuilding of the city’s hospital. 

Sec. Coloma explained media pronouncements attributed to him saying that the national cannot extend help to the city government in the re-construction of CCMC instead suggested to partner with the private sector in sourcing out funding for the project.
