Mayor Labella was shocked to the Cebu City Mayor’s Office

BEFORE he could begin his official obligations as the new civic chairman of Cebu City on Monday, July 1, 2019, active Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella met a shock—the city hall leader's office had been separated of its pipes framework and electrical association, and it had been deprived of its roof, tiles and can bowl. 

The workplace has been involved by Mayor Tomas Osmeña since 2016, after he crushed then civic chairman Michael Rama. The lawmaker, the grandson of the fourth Philippine President Sergio Osmeña Sr., was vanquished by Labella in the May 13, 2019 midterm races. 

Osmeña's last day as civic chairman fell on Friday, June 28, as the Constitution-commanded supposition date of office of recently chosen authorities (early afternoon of June 30) falls on a Sunday. 

He was not seen at the City Hall on Friday. 

On Thursday night, June 27, around 20 men—allegedly from a private development firm—entered the City Hall and "vandalized" the civic chairman's office, as indicated by the watchman's declaration and surveillance camera film. The workplace is on the eighth floor of the extension building. 

The "obliteration" of the civic chairman's office began at 8 p.m. Thursday and finished at day break Friday, and unique associate to the civic chairman Raymond Paul Taboada managed the development laborers. 

Active Department of General Services head Ronald Malacora explained that the dark colored bureau, light and pipes apparatuses, parcels, entryway, roof and tiles are possessed by Osmeña. 

As far as concerns him, Labella was staggered by what his antecedent did to the city hall leader's office. The two legislators had been partners at the Bando Osmeña Pundok Kauswagan, before Labella joined the gathering of Rama, who broke ties with Osmeña. Rama is the approaching bad habit civic chairman. 

"The ruin of the city hall leader's office is difficult to accept. It's a stunner. In any case, as I think about it, maybe it is close to a microcosm of the manner in which somebody has left a whole city wrecked," Labella said. 

Legal counselors Floro Casas and Rey Gealon—approaching city overseer and legitimate official, separately—likewise examined the workplace, and the scene inside the workplace of the city's most influential man shocked them. 

"We are dazed in light of the fact that we are going to move the things of city hall leader choose Labella from the bad habit civic chairman's office here on the eighth floor since his new office (on the ground floor of the official structure) has been experiencing fix," Gealon said. 

He said it would have been middle of the road if Osmeña's camp had taken recently the furnishings, which is allegedly possessed by the active city hall leader. 

In any case, Gealon couldn't acknowledge the demonstration of vandalizing the open office. He said Labella would keep on possessing Osmeña's previous office, and the harmed roof would be secured with a covering to shield the new civic chairman from being hit by any flotsam and jetsam that may tumble off. 

Osmeña, who was city hall leader from 2001 to 2010 and from 2016 to the present, is the main civic chairman to hold office on the eighth floor. The floor-to-roof windows in his office enabled him to see the South Road Properties and the Cebu South Coastal Road. 

Osmeña said he simply changed his office back to its unique state. 

He said his office had no parcel in 2001, and it was exposed cement. He changed his office with the assistance of temporary workers and providers of development materials. 

"What I truly did was (that) I spent for it; I took it out. I am reestablishing what it was right back to 2001," Tomas told correspondents in a telephone gathering. 

At the point when Michael Rama moved toward becoming city hall leader, the workplace was changed over into a banquet room for prominent guests. Rama is the approaching bad habit civic chairman. 

Rama, who won as city hall leader in 2010 and 2013, was conceded by the City Council P9 million for the improvement of his office. He held office on the ground floor of the addition building, saying he didn't need his constituents to need to go as far as possible up to the eighth floor on the off chance that they needed to see the city hall leader. 

Subsequent to vanquishing Rama in the mayoral race in 2016, Osmeña requested that the City Council suitable P2 million for the improvement of his office. Be that as it may, it was not given to him, he said. 

Osmeña said he isn't stressed over the grievances intended to be documented against Taboada and different people. The City Legal Office would investigate the likelihood of including Osmeña as a respondent.
