‘Legal action an option
vs. COA delay’

Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. who is blaming the Commission on Audit for the delay in deciding on the review of the sale and lease of the 7.7-hectare prime property of the provincial government to Ayala Land Inc., yesterday said that they have no choice but to de-prioritize the Capitol Civic Center project, in order to move on and focus on other development projects in Negros Occidental.

“At this juncture, we will leave it up to the Ayala Land Inc, to decide for themselves on whether they would like to continue with the project,” Marañon said, as he expressed his gratitude for their support for the development of Negros Occidental.

“In the meantime, we will start to put into motion whatever steps are necessary to shift our resources and energy to other worthwhile developments, which may have not been wasted by unjustified opposition and unnecessary delays,” he added.moremoremore
