An executive of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) has been appointed by President Benigno S. Aquino III as the new director of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB ) 7.
MCIAA General Manager Nigel Paul Villarete, who announced Public Affairs Manager Ahmed Cuizonâ€™s appointment as the new LTFRB 7 director, said it is â€œa big loss for MCIAA, but a huge gain for the LTFRB and for the country.â€
â€We at MCIAA extend our warmest congratulations to Cuizon and wish him all the luck in his new endeavors and responsibilities,â€ Villarete said.
Cuizon said he has yet to receive official documents to confirm his appointment.
â€œI am humbled by the kind words of someone as respected as Villarete. But I do not want to be too presumptive because I have yet to receive official documents to confirm it,â€ Cuizon said.
Cuizon said he is duty-bound to follow the decision of the President, since MCIAA and LTFRB are both attached agencies of the Department of Transportation and Communications.
Earlier, LTFRB board member Manuel Iway said MalacaÃ±ang is processing Cuizonâ€™s appointment so he can replace Benjamin Go who will be assigned in Cotabato.
As early as 2008, then Cebu City mayor now Rep. Tomas OsmeÃ±a (Cebu City, south district) endorsed Cuizon to the position of LTFRB 7 director after the position, which was occupied by Rogelio â€œJingjingâ€ OsmeÃ±a, was declared vacant by the Civil Service Commission.
