MANILA -- Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) chairman Richie Garcia knows very well that his boss, President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, is ruling under a transparency and accountability platform.

And he promised to the same as he told media in the weekly Philippine Sportswriters Association forum that he will also bare possible misgivings committed by the administration of then PSC chairman Harry Angping.

“The PSC will be very transparent. I was already approached by two people willing to talk about it (anomaly). Ang sabi ko sa mga empleyado, kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap. We will just do our job to make things work,” he said.

Asked if he would follow the “whistleblower” speech of President Aquino in his State of the Nation Address (Sona), Garcia welcomed the idea while giving focus on how to improve the sorry state of Philippine sports.

He also sought the unity of opposing sports bodies PSC and POC to allow consolidated support for the Filipino athletes who will participate in the Asian Games this November.

To recall, the PSC and the POC had conflicts over various sports policies like the sending of two separate delegations to the 2009 Southeast Asian Games in Laos, among others. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
