‘Tsuper Iskolar’ goes to Visayas THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) have launched the “Tsuper Iskolar” program in Cebu which aims to provide scholarships and livelihood training to utility drivers and provide them with free skills and entrepreneurship training. A total of 18 transport cooperatives in Cebu and nearby provinces participated in the program which was also launched in the National Capital

Region, Ilocos Region, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Davao regions, including Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapeña said everyone is welcome to apply for the program, but priority will be given to drivers affected by the modernization program and their families, the indigenous people, and rebel returnees. He said trainees will receive a daily allowance of P350. Among the cours-

es they can choose from are Heavy Equipment Operation (Forklift) NC II, Hilot (Wellness Massage) NC II, Food and Beverage Services NC II, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) NC II, Housekeeping NC II, Caregiving NC II, Driving NC II, Bread and Pastry Production NC II, Beauty Care Services NC II, and Electrical Installation and Maintenance NC II. Lapeña said the DOTr has allotted a P300 million fund for “Tsuper Iskolar” for 2019. The program will continue as needed. (Maria. Cristina Arayata)

He said as a general rule, an official may only remove movable furniture and fixtures such as chairs, tables, and computers that are personal property when he ends his term. “But the act of even removing what is considered immovable objects like ceiling, walls, and the tiles are already bad faith because it renders the office, which is government property, as unusable by his successor and therefore affects the delivery of public service to the people of Cebu City. Under the Civil Code, immovable improvements may only be removed by the owner if it does not cause damage or injury to the work constructed,” Malaya said. He also suggested that Osmeña should have filed a claim for indemnification for all the immovable improvements that he introduced to the office so that reimbursements should have been made. The former mayor said that he paid for the repair of the office in 2010 with his friends amounting to P2 million since the budget had been rejected by Cebu City Vice

Former Cebu Mayor Tomas Osmeña FB page Mayor Edgardo Labella, who defeated Osmeña in the May 13 mid-term elections. Labella said he was also surprised when he found the mayor’s office “vandalized”, disconnected from the

plumbing system and electrical connection, the ceiling and tiles stripped off, and no furniture was left aside from the two industrial air-conditioners and some chairs. (Christopher Lloyd Caliwan)
