JV Ejercito vows Senate probe into Yolanda housing in Tacloban
Senator JV Ejercito on April 13 vowed to probe the slow implementation of Super Typhoon Yolanda housing projects in Tacloban City.
Ejercito made the assurance during his inspection of the housing projects in Tacloban.
The senator said he was concerned over the reports that the housing projects used sub-standard materials as well as being constructed in hazard-prone areas.
“That’s why I’m here and I personally saw some structures. Kailangan maimbestigahan po natin sa Senado at mai-correct ang mga mali ng contractors at developers sa mga pabahay program na ito ng National Housing Authority,” Ejercito said.
“We also want them to fast track the construction of the houses. Ang dami palang nag-aantay na mga recipients, pero di pa tapos ang mga bahay para sa kanila,” Ejercito said.
