- Manila Mayor Isko Moreno ordered all schools in the City of Manila to suspend classes today in all levels due to inclement weather
- However, reports surfaced that the University of the East did not cancel classes for college students
- The mayor then issued a threat against UE for defying his order
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno was not pleased when he found out that the University of the East did not follow his order regarding the suspension of classes due to inclement weather today, July 1, 2019.
KAMI learned that the UE reportedly did not suspend classes for its college students, which is in defiance of the mayor’s order.
For this reason, Moreno threatened to revoke UE’s permit to operate in Manila City.
“University of the East, wag matigas ulo niyo ah. Nagdeklara na kami ng suspensyon ng klase. Ngayon, kung ayaw niyong sumusod, umalis kayo sa lungsod ng Maynila. We will withdraw your permit to operate in the City of Manila.
“We are after the welfare of our students, we owe it to the public. You harmonize with the city government,” Moreno said, as reported by the Philippine Daily Inquirer (authored by Faye Orellana).
Moreno announced the suspension of classes in Manila at 9:49 a.m. But UE Manila only suspended its classes from Kinder up to Grade 12 an hour later as shown in its advisory posted in its Facebook page at 10:52 a.m.
In a previous report by KAMI, Moreno was interviewed on “Tonight With Boy Abunda.”
Isko Moreno has been married to Diana Lynn Ditan for 19 years already. The have five children – Vincent Patrick, born in 1998; Frances Diane, born in 2000; Joaquin Andre, born in 2001; Franco Dylan, born in 2006; and Drake Marcus, born in 2012.
