MANILA (Mabuhay) – Malacañang is confident that newly appointed Customs chief John Sevilla can carry out reform measures at the bureau and asked for the public’s patience to give him time to do his job.
Sevilla said he was receiving reports about the rampant anomaly in the bureau but those reports have to be validated.
In a radio interview Saturday, Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said they are confident about Sevilla’s capability in fixing the bureau.
“Kaya ni Commissioner Sevilla iyan. I think he was talking about the reports that he was getting,” Valte told dzRB Radyo ng Bayan on Saturday.
Valte said Sevilla also spelled out his plans for the bureau and that reports he has been getting should thoroughly be validated.
Reporters also asked Valte if the Palace believes that Customs Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence Jessie Dellosa is effective in his job, Valte said the people should give him, together with Sevilla, enough time to show their competence.
“Both of them are new to their posts,” Valte said of Sevilla and Dellosa. I think let’s give them time. Maraming kailangang gawing trabaho diyan. Bigyan natin sila ng pagkakataon na mabuo ang kanilang team at magawa ng kanilang grupo ang ibinigay sa kanilang mandato ng Pangulong Aquino.” (MNS)
