Kinontra ng singer at dating Quezon City councilor na si Anthony Castelo ang naging pahayag ni Ormoc City mayor Richard Gomez tungkol sa pagbabalik-probinsya ng mga umuwing OFW.

“I BELIEVE, it was poor judgment on the part of Mayor Richard Gomez of Ormoc City, Leyte to refuse entry to overseas Filipino workers returning to their hometown from abroad recently.” Ayon kay Castelo

Sinang-ayunan ni Castelo ang sinabi ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na walang dahilan upang di tanggapin ng dating actor ang mga OFWs nan ais umuwi sa probinsya.

“Yes, we are in a COVID-19 emergency and we can all relate to the Mayor’s predicament. But it is also an emergency situation when you have hundreds of OFWs already in the next town on their way home after having been stranded abroad for months.” Paliwanag ng veteran OPM singer.

Ayon pa kay Castelo, dapat laging handa ang mayor sa kahit anong pagkakataon, magkaroon man ng notice o wala ang mga ahensya ng gobyerno.

“The good mayor could’ve had more flexibility during such an eventuality, because in the state we are in, nothing is really predictable, regardless if higher authorities had given you enough notice or not, one must address the pressing problem at hand.” Aniya

“He could have placed the OFWs in a holding area for identification, and tested all-over again- considering they’ve already been cleared and deemed negative of the COVID-19 virus before being released in Manila.” Ayon pa kay Castelo

Sa kabila nito, nilinaw ng dating singer na nirerespeto nya si Goma bilang isang kasamahan sa showbiz at public servant, dahil sa kanyang pangako na ipatupad ang disiplina, at magandang pamamalakad.

“I believe we can all learn a thing or two from the wisdom and advice of well-experienced former local officials, like that of former Mayor and now President, Rodrigo Duterte,” ayon kay Castelo

Kamakailan lang ay naglabas ng hinaing si Goma dahil sa kakulangan ng tamang proseso ng balik-probinsya program ng national government agencies.

“DILG, NHA, OWWA, what happened to all the protocols that you guys are trying to formulate for returning residents?!!!” ayon sa social media post umano ng actor

“We have kept our city Covid-free for more than 70 days because of strict border controls and the implementation of health protocols. Then here comes a TEXT from the National government agencies telling us that there are repatriates coming in our city and telling us to accept them?!

“What happened to all the protocols that we’ve been working on? What happened their protocols that they have been telling us to do if they themselves are not doing the right thing?!

“It only takes one infected person to get to our city to infect a hundred innocent people bec of carelessness from the national government agencies. Where is the National Task Force Covid Shield and the IATF in all of these?!!!” ani Goma
