Dr. Dexter Buted said that in year 2013  the nine campuses university’s coffer slumped with four hundred thousand pesos deficit.
In 2014 it earned a measly P1.8 million from revenues like tuition fees, books, and others.
He said he arrived here as president in December 2014.
“From 2015 it has an income generation of P11.3 million. Dapat ang Kapitolyo hinahanap noon ang pera ng PSU. Bakit meron kami P11.3 million for less than a year?” he stressed.
He hit a certain Lanie Montemayor and Professor Cabansag who regularly and scathingly criticized him in their bloc time radio program at  3 pm daily at 89.3 FM News.
He said Montemayor’s beef with him was because he did not renew the teaching stint of the former  instructor.
Montemayor, Buted cited, was not a master’s degree holder, while Professor Cabansag was persuaded by his collegues to resign because of the corruption issues hurled against him.
“Una. puntahan natin si Professor Cabansag. Professor Cabansag is now with the Capitol. Why? Natangal po siya sa PSU. Bakit? Because of corruption. Madami kami pang bala na puwedeng gamitin sa kanila!”
Buted laughed off the corruption issues hurled by the duo and other critics in a video in social media.

“Ano ang corruption doon? May ninakaw ba si Dr. Buted?” he posed to media men who attended the press conference he called at the library of the campus.
He said during his stint, all the revenues from the tuition, uniforms, books, and others were duly receipted and the monies he funneled straight to the school’s treasury.
He added that his presidency was not a result of political intercession by some powerful people to cater for their interest.

Buted explained that he wiggled into the eye of the neddle just to get his lofty position.
“Dapat po ikaw ay morally upright person, sunod dapat ikaw ay excellent sa iyong teaching profession. Ang minimum requirements are 15 years. Sunod po another five years is you have an executive position managing at least 15 employees. Next you should have published a research, that you are a researcher, you published research in the international community. I was able to present an international research in an international forum
He added that the other requirements were one had stint uplifting the lives of people and no cases at the Ombudsman, the Civil Service Commission, and any courts in the country.
He denied that he paid ten million pesos for the eight of the nine members of the Board of Regents that voted him in his present post.
“How can I buy it? I am only an ordinary person”.
Those who voted for him were representatives of the Philippine Association of States Universities and Colleges, private sector in Pangasinan, and Commission on Higher Education, Student Regent, Senator Pia Cayetano, Congressman Roman Romulo, Secretary of the Department of Science & Technology, Regional Director of the National Economic Development Authority,and Regional Director of Agriculture.
Buted denied that he bought for ten million pesos his election for the presidency of the state university.
“How can I buy it? I am only an ordinary person” he said.
