It will not be fair for Budget Secretary Florencio Abad if he will be asked to resign just because his name is being dragged by 10 Billion peso Pork Barrel fund scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles.
This was Malacanang’s reaction after a Catholic Bishop has asked Abad to resign after allegedly serving as mentor to Napoles.
In a press briefing in Malacanang, Presidential Spokesman Secretary Edwin Lacierda said that it is clear that President Benigno Aquino III’s basis will be strong evidence in following the investigation.
The Cabinet Secretary insisted that those who continuously accuse Abad will have to present strong evidence against the Budget Secretary.
Lacierda emphasized that President Aquino still has complete trust and faith in Abad.
