Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on the resignation of Secretary Wanda Corazon Tulfo-Teo as Department of Tourism (DOT) secretary

We thank Secretary Wanda Corazon Tulfo-Teo for her service at the Department of Tourism (DOT).

It is unfortunate that her name was dragged into a controversy. I, however, commend her decision to resign and to spare the President from undue pressure.

The President has too many things on his plate to be dragged into this issue, most especially solving the diplomatic gap between our country and Kuwait, where 260,000 of our countrymen depend for their livelihood.

I also call on the president to immediately appoint her replacement, as not to put the DOT's programs and projects to a standstill, especially in light with the rehabilitation of Boracay Island.
