“ABUSE OF AUTHORITY” Good Afternoon Professors, classmates and friends. Before I start let me share you this line from our former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo “I am Sorry” These past few days, on the news we heard so much about Congressman Arroyo on how she misused the Government funds, using it for her own benefits or maybe we could say using it not for its rightful purpose. One example of this is buying or giving vehicles to numerous bishops using the funds from Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). We all know that lots of our fellow Filipinos are asking for help to PCSO due to Health condition/ concerns and some of those people badly needed Financial Assistance. If we compute how much those vehicle cost more or less 20 million pesos…. 20 million pesos can you imagine how many sick people can benefits on that amount???? Let say one operation per person will cost One Hundred Thousand Pesos (Php100,000.00) this is just an example, about 200 people nearly can have financial support from PCSO but due to some people who abuse their authority maybe those 200 people doesn’t get any financial assistance from PCSO until now… I’m not saying that giving a vehicle to some bishop is wrong but what I want to imply is use the funds to its rightful purpose. Abuse of Authority definitely would affect people specially those who don’t have knowledge and understanding on our Governments. May this speech will be an eye opener and lets start on our own by eliminating such abusive attitudes this may sound irrelevant but Abuse of authority starts from little things until it becomes a habit. Thank you and Good
