After Blue Ribbon Committee’s invitation to Binay last week, it was reported that Vice President Jejomar Binay was unable to attend the hearing.
GMA Cebu reported that Binay arrived in Cebu shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday.
Binay was slated to take part in some of the activities in Cebu on Thursday and Friday, GMA Cebu’s Bobby Nalzaro said on dzBB radio.
The reason of the committee’s invitation was to give light on the supposed overpricing of the construction cost of the Makati City Hall Building II. The construction of said project strarted during Binay’s term as Makati City mayor.
During an interview with a radio station in Cebu City on Thursday, Binay said there was nothing unusual with the construction of the Makati City Hall Building II and other transactions of the Makati City government during his term as its mayor.
Adding that the construction of the controversial 11-storey building was able to pass the procurement laws and bidding procedures.
“Meron tayong procurement laws na sinunod. Nagkaroon tayo ng bidding,” Binay said.
