CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebu City Councilor Prisca Niña Mabatid is warning a political entity in the Cebu City Hall, whom she has tagged as “ongo” or monster, that if this person does not stop his bullying and power tripping amid these crucial times, she will reveal that person’s identity in the proper forum.

Mabatid has been vocal of her frustrations about a certain official at the City Hall, who, she says, has been against her projects for the betterment of the Cebu City residents.

In her February 6, 2021 post, Mabatid said that an “ongo” at the City Hall has been making the shots in the operations of the city, despite not having the authority to do so.

“Kabalo ba mo nga naay ‘ongo‘ sa city hall nga maoy nag buot2x sa tanan gikan sa pag padagan sa city hall, sa mga supplier sa bugas ug tig diktar sa mga ‘puppet’ councilors unsay buhaton sa budget, kinsay tagaan ug kinsay dili?” Mabatid’s post read.

“Dili man Covid iyang concern, mas nag bantay siya sa kwarta sa gobyerno. Ngano kaha? Kamo na lang bahala. Basta ako, naningkamot ko ug ako hatag ug serbisyo sa mga tao, labi na mga pobre, gamit sa akong kaugalingong kwarta,” she added.

Mabatid told reporters in a phone interview that she does not wish to divulge the name of the “ongo” as she fears for her life. She said that the “powerful politician” can create black propaganda against her through the troll accounts at social media sites.

She said her concern is that these politicians are allegedly blocking her projects that are supposed to be for the betterment of the residents.

“Marisgo akong kinabuhi, himoan kog black propaganda, pwede sila ang source anang mga troll accounts nga sigeg malign nako. Pwede sad ko nila hikawan sa pagserbisyo sa gobyerno, samot ko nila di apilon tungod kay mao na ilang baws diri nako kay powerful sila karon. Kana gyong pagrisgo sa akong kinabuhi, I can be killed anytime,” said Mabatid in the phone interview.

However, the councilor said that if that “ongo” will continue to block projects that would help Cebuanos, power trip his way to corruption, and become a hindrance to the city’s progress, she will not hesitate to name the person.

” I want to warn him to stop. If he doesn’t stop, I will really reveal him in the right forum,” said the councilor.

Mabatid also expressed concern over the on-and-off bickering of the leaders of Barug-PDP Laban, Mayor Edgardo Labella and Vice Mayor Michael Rama in the past weeks, even though this has been recently resolved.

She said that if the leaders keep on fighting, this will become the downfall of the administration and would eventually affect the party.
