BACOLOD City – Mayor Evelio Leonardia and Vice Mayor Thaddeus Sayson claimed that Bacolod Lone District Congressman Dr. Anthony Golez should be blamed for the state of the Sum-ag road as it is a national road.
The Sum-ag road, a major artery in the city going to the southern part of the province of Negros Occidental, has been the subject of complaints from passengers and motorists calling it as “abortion road”.
Leonardia said they have not been remiss in their duty and have been reminding the Department of Public Works and Highway to repair the damaged road.
Sayson, on the other hand, explained that the city government cannot do the repairs because if they spend for it, they will be liable for double funding as the DPWH already has an allocation for it.
