Negros Occidental 3rd District Representative Albee Benitez on April 28 dished out on his “Ay, nahulog!” experience in Zamboanga City.

The Negros Occidental politiko said he will initiate a probe into why the bridge leading to the National Housing Authority (NHA) site collapsed while they were crossing it last month.

The collapse of the bridge was captured on photos and video and went viral.

“Iimbestigahan ito kung paano ginawa ng mga kontratista private contractors po ang na-hire dito. Well ang first tanong ko kaninong design, why was it allowed that the bridge with that kind of material ang ginamit para dun sa project na iyun,” Benitez said.

“We need the specification of the design, what is approved? More yung contractor did not follow the specification kaya yung ga materyales na ginamit are substandard. Obviously may problema dahil bumagsak po kami hindi naman siguro plano ang design niya the contractor ay yung tulay ay hindi matibay. Kung sasabihin natin na sobrang dami namin at hindi dapat ganung karami ang taong dumaan eventually there are 240 housing units dun sa pupuntahan namin,” he added.
