Student councils to Arroyo: “Study your history”

“Sen. Arroyo, please study your history”.

This was the statement of the Student Council Alliance of the Philippines (SCAP) yesterday in response to Sen. Joker Arroyo’s pronouncement that the “new administration runs the country like a student government”.

Arroyo’s statement was made in an interview for dzBB radio criticizing PNoy’s handling of the investigation of the hostage crisis and the Palace’s “lopsided” budget proposal.

SCAP National Chairperson and former Sanggunian ng mga Mag-aaral ng Ateneo de Manila Chairperson Gio Tingson suggests that “Arroyo should look at how students were mobilized during EDSA 1 and 2 through their student councils”.

“The senator’s point of comparison has no basis and is fuelled by destructive animosity against PNoy,” says Tingson. “His comments are destructive and unbecoming of a legislator”.

SCAP Deputy Secretary General Gibby Gorres, however, volunteers to tour Sen. Arroyo in schools across the country “to see how student governments are working to better their communities and even engage their local government units”.

“It’s time for Sen. Arroyo to re-connect with young people. Only after could he be truly effective as a legislator”, adds Gorres. #
