Construction of P5M edifices above board - Dion
“Iba ang plano na iyan kesa doon sa standard (school building). Mas malaki ang cost ng two storey,” he stressed. The news reports made a dig at the projects in Dagupan City with the following statements: “The senator has expressed disappointment that the initial P5 million released to the project only yielded 3 classrooms. Based on DPWH’s standard computation of a classroom (P650,000 per classroom), P5 million should have yielded at least 6 classrooms” . Dion said he even explained to the writer, after the latter called him through the phone, the specifications of the edifices. As of press time he said the provincial newspaper has not published his side of the story (Mortz C. Ortigoza).
