The United Negros Alliance (UNA) re-electionist Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. and Dr. Melvin Ibañez yesterday dismissed claims by Vice Gov. Genaro Alvarez in a radio interview discrediting the gains of the NEGROS FIRST Agenda in the last two years and six months.
"Vice Gov. Alvarez is clearly contradicting himself," UNA spokesperson, Atty. Pauline Tumunong-Nuega, said.
Vice Gubernatorial candidate Melvin Ibañez of the United Negros Alliance has debunked claims of his opponent that the Negros First Cyber Center program of Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. is "a wrong investment in the use of loans by the Provincial Government".
Projects funded by loans , especially for economic and development and employment purposes, can never be a wrong investment, Ibañez, a member of the Provincial Board for six years, said.
