VM Rama resigns as head of Sinulog Foundation Inc.
Cebu City Vice Mayor Michael Rama has stepped down as chairman of the Sinulog Foundation Incorporated (SFI).
His resignation came after he was snubbed by the newly convened Cebu City Sinulog Governing Board (CCSGB) in their meeting last October 24.
In a statement, Rama said the CCSGB has started preparations for the Sinulog by outlining activities that “differ with those that have been planned by the Sinulog Foundation Inc.”
The vice mayor added that the SFI did not agree with the activities presented by the governing board.
Mayor Edgardo Labella had said Rama was not invited to the meeting of the government board because he is not a member of the group.
“The Sinulog (governing) board agreed what was agreed upon already by the SFI. That’s the beauty there. The two groups complement each other for purposes of coming up with a very beautiful Sinulog this time,” Labella added.
