Mayor Osmeña: I won’t close van terminal


Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña said he will not close the van-for-hire terminal in Barangay Kamagayan.

The Cebu politiko said his change of heart came after a call from Governor Hilario Davide III.

“Because Gov. Davide asked, the Kamagayan V-Hire area will not be closed. He just called me saying that many of his constituents benefit from it, so I will support him,” he said.

Osmeña earlier said he will shut down the terminal because of the “abusive” management.

“I have to dismantle the hierarchy there. It’s not the fault of the V-hire, it’s the fault of Douglas Labra, acting like a king there, just cancel the whole thing,” he said.
