SP eyes declaring Tulfo
persona non grata

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod is mulling the possibility of declaring broadcaster Ben Tulfo, host of the radio program Sumbungan ng Bayan, as persona non-grata for putting Bacolod City and some city officials in a bad light.

Bacolod Councilor Al Victor Espino yesterday said the Bacolod City Government had nothing to do with the basketball event “FPJ ang Probinsyanong cast vs Artistahing Bacoleños.” It was not also an official event of the city and the MassKara Festival.

Espino was reacting to the complaint of a certain “Norma”, during a radio interview with Tulfo, that they have yet to collect the talent fee of actors/players in the basketball event amounting to about P500,000 from local event organizers in Bacolod City. moremoremore
