Taguig declines Makati's school supply support to EMBO barangay students
by Mary Antalan14 August 2023

The City of Taguig declined Makati Local Government Unit's offer to give free uniforms, shoes, and other school supplies to the 30,000 students from ten Embo Barangays, which were previously considered by the Supreme Court to be part of Taguig.

According to the report of Christian Maño in DZRH's Rapido Hataw Balita, Makati City Administrator Claro Certesa said Taguig rejected the offer during a meeting last July that was attended by Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, Makati Mayor Abi Binay, and officials from the Department of Education.

Cersesa said the offer might help students and parents lessen their worries regarding the upcoming classes.

Cayetano, however, said to stop the distribution of supplies starting within the school year.

On July 17, Binay expressed her concern for the 300,000 residents who will be relocated to Taguig in adherence to the Supreme Court's (SC) ruling.

On the other hand, Cayetano reassured them that they have enough programs to provide for new Taguig residents.

On June 26, the Supreme Court denied the Makati government's request for a second appeal involving the disputed territory of Taguig City's Fort Bonifacio, comprising the so-called Inner Fort, composed of Barangays Pembo, Comembo, Cembo, South Cembo, West Rembo, East Rembo, and Pitogo.
