Richard Gomez goes wages war with NHA


It is on.

Actor turned Mayor Richard Gomez won’t be backing down from a war against the National Housing Authority (NHA) as he discovered that mass housing set up for the Ormoc earthquake victims were made from substandard materials.

“I challenge the NHA GM to resign for talking and yacking without physically checking details of their housing project in Ormoc. Do not bring danger to our city. Safety is our prime concern for our people,” Gomez said.

The NHA is headed by Marcelino P. Escalada, Jr.

Gomez previously ordered the NHA to demolish the homes they are building after finding out that the hollow blocks used in the project are crumbling, which he said puts into question the stability of these homes.
