Palace now just ‘one text away’

MALACAÑANG announced that citizens can now simply text 8888 from both Globe and Smart and their affiliate telcos to raise their concerns, complaints and grievances before the Office of the President.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the Office of the President (OP) has added an 8888 short message system (SMS) or text service platform to the 8888 Citizens’ Complaint Center (8888 CCC), one of the constituent offices of the OP Strategic Action and Response Office.

This new platform or communication channel, which had its soft launch last November 3, would certainly give a boost to the good governance drive of the Duterte administration, Roque said.

Citizens can now simply text 8888 from both Globe and Smart and their affiliate telcos and raise their concerns, complaints and grievances on graft and corrupt practices by government officials and employees and slow and inefficient delivery of government services and requests for government assistance — free of charge.

“Those who are corrupt, lazy, incompetent in the government, be forewarned. You are now one text away,” Roque said. (PR)
