MANILA -- Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, now representative of the second district of Pampanga, has had enough of the allegations thrown at her by the current administration.

In his first State of the Nation Address (Sona), President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III slammed his predecessor and government agencies, including the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and the National Food Authority (NFA), for their alleged corrupt practices.

“It's about time to move forward already. We are committed to support the Aquino administration at hindi pwedeng araw-araw na lang paguusapan natin itong mga datos," Arroyo's spokesperson Maria Elena Bautista-Horn told reporters.

According to the House minority bloc, President Aquino was misled by his Cabinet officials with the data he has been provided with.

Lakas-Kampi party official and Representative Danilo Suarez (third district, Quezon) added that instead of focusing on the problems of the past, President Aquino should start working for the Filipino people who elected him.

“Popular ka hinalal ka na, wag na tayo maghukay ng nakaraan. Let's move forward at magtrabaho na tayo," Suarez said. (Kathrina Alvarez/Sunnex)
