Region 10 backs gov't moves on exam retake, billboards
Cagayan de Oro City (7 October) -- Government's move to meticulously examine alleged nursing exam deserves support, according to Mayor Bambi Emano of Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental. "It would not only bring justice to the nursing profession and the country’s morale, but also to the countless parents who invested huge amount of money for their children’s future career," said the mayor.
Emano, local chapter president of the League of Mayors of the Philippines (LMP), said while the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) continues its second phase of investigation, he will support whatever move the government will take in finding the best solution to settle the issue.
Lanao Sur nursing board passers, parents welcome gov’t move to defer retake
Dr. Mangola Dima, Jr., Provincial Chief of Lanao del Sur Medical Outreach Program, said the passers and parents of the recently concluded nursing licensure exam welcome the government’s decision to defer the retake order and thoroughly review the complexity of the case.
Dima said the parents of those who passed are also asking President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to conduct the policy of retake exam only in areas where leakage supposedly occurred.
The government has assured that those who are guilty will bear the brunt of retribution while those who are innocent will be treated fairly, Dima added.
