Cabr­era to give up post at CCENRO

Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES -

Cebu City En­vi­ron­ment and Nat­u­ral Re­sources Of­fice (CCENRO) Chief Ma. Nida Cabr­era is set to va­cate her po­si­tion once she gets the ap­proval of Mayor To­mas Os­meña.

In a phone in­ter­view, Cabr­era clar­i­fied that there is noth­ing per­sonal with her de­ci­sion, adding that she just wants to fo­cus on work­ing in the pri­vate sec­tor.

“There is re­ally no prob­lem, I just want to rest,” she told re­porters.

Cabr­era said her res­ig­na­tion let­ter was al­ready sub­mit­ted to Os­meña but they were not able to talk since the mayor is still in Manila.

But Atty. Marie Velle Abella, Hu­man Re­source De­vel­op­ment Of­fice (HRDO) chief, said that they have yet to re­ceive Cabr­era’s res­ig­na­tion.

“I did not re­ceive a res­ig­na­tion from Nida Cabr­era. Usu­ally the process is (that) all res­ig­na­tion let­ters are en­dorsed to HRDO for the prepa­ra­tion of the ap­proval of res­ig­na­tion,” Abella said.

She said the mayor has the op­tion to dis­ap­prove Cabr­era’s res­ig­na­tion. But even if he does, Cabr­era said that she wants to quit gov­ern­ment ser­vice.

“I would have wanted to re­sign in Jan­uary or Fe­bru­ary yet... (but) there are still un­fin­ished projects. I re­ally want to re­sign al­ready. If I need to ex­tend, maybe just for two to three months,” she said.

Cabr­era said there are still few tasks that she has to fin­ish be­fore leav­ing of­fice, in­clud­ing a trip to Ja­pan to dis­cuss a pos­si­ble pro­gram part­ner­ship in pro­mot­ing en­vi­ron­ment pro­grams.

Be­fore her ap­pointed as chief of CCENRO, Cabr­era, an ally of the Bando Os­meña Pun­dok Kauswa­gan, served as a city coun­cilor and han­dled the com­mit­tee on en­vi­ron­ment.

When sought for com­ment, Coun­cilor Mar­garita Os­meña said they re­spect Cabr­era’s de­ci­sion, adding that the lat­ter will al­ways be wel­come in the BOPK fam­ily. /
