The Gapan City, Nueva Ecija local government unit (LGU) revoked the food aid given to a dog lover constituent because of a Facebook post.

Previously, the Mayor of Gapan City Emerson Pascual, distributes sacks of rice on every household in his area. Mayor Pascual gives whole and live chickens to the residents amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The Mayor together with his colleagues is giving whole chickens to each home. The residents were grateful to the kindness and generosity of the local government officials in the city.

Meanwhile, the Mayor feels embarrassed to one of his constituents who received a sack of rice for his post on social media. In a Facebook post of Anthana Namguz Ed Wo, he wrote “Dumating na 1 bulto ng bigas di na magugutom mga aso ko. Salamat mayor may bigas na mga aso ko.”

As a result, the Mayor immediately called for the man to withdraw the sack of rice he received because the rice was distributed to people affected by the enhanced community quarantine and not to the dogs, as based on the article.

The dog owner explained, he said he is the only tenant in Barangay Mangino and his only companion in the house is his pet dogs. He then apologized to the netizens over his post.

However, the mayor ordered to do a background check if the pet owner really owns many dogs and to prove that he’s telling the truth. The mayor never withdrew the rice given to Jonathan.
