Senator Grace Poe questioned the Philippine Amusement Gaming Corporation’s (PAGCOR) contentious new logo.
Poe has reacted to PAGCOR’s new logo, which has drawn attention for its questionable design spreading on social media.
“Because it’s (PAGCOR) a government agency, it should have [undergone] the proper bidding process. Ganyan ba talaga kamahal para gumawa ng bagong logo? Saan ba pwedeng mapunta ang P3 million na yun… Ano ba yung bidding? Sino ba yung nakisali dyan? I think, parang gawin lang yan sa computer, hindi ba?” Grace Poe said according to the report of ABS-CBN News.
Grace Poe is also suspicious of the bidding process, wondering how difficult it would be to create a logo using a computer. Senator Poe point out that a P3 million budget is sometimes equivalent to the cost of a high-end painting or hiring a highly skilled artist to create a design.
“When it comes to government projects with limited resources, it can be allocated to projects that are most important, eh baka, pwedeng magtipid-tipid tayo ng konti. Yung bidding lang gusto kong malaman,” Poe explained.
