City env’t chief Cabr­era quits

Cebu Daily News - - NEWS - /COR­RE­SPON­DENT INNA GIAN MEJIA WITH A RE­PORT FROM ROS­ALIE ABATAYO

CEBU City En­vi­ron­ment and N a t u r a l R es­ources Of­fice (CCENRO) chief Nida Cabr­era has de­cided to re­sign from pub­lic ser­vice.

Cabr­era took to so­cial me­dia site Face­book to an­nounce her de­ci­sion to step down from of­fice.

“My heart bleeds to say good­bye to all my staff and friends in gov­ern­ment. It is nice work­ing with you, ex­tend­ing my sin­cer­est thanks to all of your co­op­er­a­tion and hard work ex­tended to the of­fice CCENRO dur­ing my time,” a por­tion of her post read.

In a phone in­ter­view, Cabr­era re­fused to di­vulge the rea­son for her res­ig­na­tion.

Cabr­era plans to leave pub­lic ser­vice for good on Jan­uary or Fe­bru­ary of next year. She said she sub­mit­ted her res­ig­na­tion in ad­vance so that the city can pre­pare for the post which will be left va­cant.

“Ac­tu­ally, sup­posed to be, I will re­sign on Jan­uary or Fe­bru­ary but I still have to fin­ish some projects. I will wait for their de­ci­sion too. But for me, I re­ally want to re­sign be­cause there are other things that I need to at­tend to,” she said.

The for­mer Cebu City coun­cilor and Barangay Luz cap­tain was ap­pointed by Mayor To­mas Os­meña as the head of CCENRO in June of this year.

Cabr­era said she wants to in­form the mayor ahead of her de­ci­sion. Should the mayor ap­prove her res­ig­na­tion ear­lier, it would be bet­ter, she said.

She said she still has to fin­ish at least three projects for the city. It is for this rea­son that she will be trav­el­ing to Ja­pan.

“I was the one who pre­sented the pro­posal (for the project). Para maka- pre­pare ang syu­dad, mi­hatag ko daan sa (res­ig­na­tion let­ter). And so I can work out with other things,” she said.

“Wala man koy prob­lema. Mu­pahuway lang gyud ko (I don’t have prob­lem. I just want to rest),” she added.

Lawyer Amay Abella of the Hu­man Re­source Devel­op­ment Of­fice (HRDO) said she has not re­ceived any res­ig­na­tion let­ter from Cabr­era.

She said the process would be that the res­ig­na­tion let­ters are en­dorsed to the HRDO for the prepa­ra­tion of let­ter of ap­proval.
