Evasco denounces Chatto, Relampagos, Yap for being ‘opportunists’

Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco, Jr. on Thursday denounced Governor Edgar Chatto, Rep. Art Yap and Rep. Rene Relampagos for being “opportunists,” accusing them of aligning themselves with the administration party for personal gain.

“Kini si Art Yap, kini si Rene Relampagos, kini si Chatto sila man ang babag sa pagkampanya namo ni Duterte dinhi sa Bohol. Sila may nagdaot ni Duterte. Kay sila, didto man sila sa kampo ni Mar Roxas,” said Evasco over station dyRD. “Ug kini si Yap, ga-lagari ni. Gikan kang Mar Roxas, adto napud ni Grace Poe. Kining klaseha sa politiko opurtunista ni.”

Evasco called out the longtime government officials for having shifted their support from one President to another over the course of their political careers.

“Gikan ni GMA [Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo], ni adto ni P-Noy [Benigno Aquino III], karon mo adto napud ni Duterte tungod kay ilang kaugalingon lang ang ilang gi-lantaw. Wa sila ga-lantaw sa Bohol na ilang gi-representahan,” said Evasco.

Evasco, whose name has been floated as among possible gubernatorial candidates for next year’s midterm polls, maintained that he has no plans of running for office, even after his tirade against Yap and Relampagos who are also possible candidates for the gubernatorial race.

Chatto is on his last term as governor.

“Maka-storya ko sa tinuod kay dili man ko mo-dagan. Dili ko isipon na politiko na makahatag og hulga sa ilang mga plano,” Evasco said.

The three officials have yet to issue statements regarding Evasco’s accusation against them.

For his part, Provincial Administrator Alfonso Damalerio II said that he was unaware of what Evasco meant in calling Chatto, Relampagos and Yap opportunists.

“Mahimo ba silang oportunista tungod kay ga-da sila og kaugmaran dinhi sa atong probinsya sa Bohol. Kanang maka-himo ka og development sa usa ka dapit sa congressional district ba kaha or sa imong probinsya, di man siguro an oportunista,” said Damalaerio.

He said that the Chatto administration brought progress to the province of Bohol, noting advancements in infrastructure.

“Og dako ka na official sa usa ka probinsya nga nakita nimo nga dako ka kaayo og impluwensya, dako ka kaayo og authority above sa mga local officials unya wa kay gihimo na makasulbad sa mga problema sa mga taw dinhi, wa ka kita sa opportunity nga asa ka maka-tabang,” said Damalerio without elaborating on who he was pertaining to.
