STATEMENT OF SECRETARY JOEL VILLANUEVA ON THE BILLBOARDS
In view of opinions expressed regarding billboards and tarpaulins, I am appealing to my friends and supporters to take down those bearing my image.
This issue has distracted us from more important things.
Rest assured that no public funds were spent for the erection of those billboards. We will continue to carry out our mandate in providing quality technical vocational education and training to Filipinos. Credit always belongs to TESDA’s men and women who run the institution, and our partner government agencies and the private sector.
Our graduates, fully empowered with their new-found skills, and ready to take on jobs locally or abroad are always our best walking billboards. Let's continue supporting TESDA programs. END
