Malacanang respects resigned Health Secretary Enrique Ona’s reason for leaving his post.

According to Ona, his forced resignation was politically motivated amid the on-going investigation against him on the questionable purchase of 800 million peso-worth of anti-pneumonia vaccines.

PCOO Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. commented that the said reason is Ona’s personal opinion and that they will respect that in as much as they will continue to give him the chance to explain his side regarding the said anomaly.

The statement of Coloma was made after the former Secretary stated that he left his post because he feels that he no longer has the President’s vote of confidence.
