Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. won’t tell who dropped the ball on the supposed 10 million doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine delivery to the Philippines this January.
During the Commission on Appointments’ deliberation on the nomination and ad interim appointment of three Foreign Affairs officials, Senator Panfilo Lacson asked Locsin: “Who dropped the ball?”
Locsin tweeted Tuesday night that someone apparently made a mistake that affected the delivery of Pfizer vaccines.
“I think it’s enough that I really lost my temper because [Ambassador to US] Babe [Romualdez] and I worked really hard, and we don’t like to see our efforts wasted but never mind, I don’t want to lose my temper on Zoom,” Locsin said, responding to Lacson’s query.
“I understand, Mr. Secretary. I had an SMS exchange with Ambassador Romualdez, and you don’t need to tell me because I know now who dropped the ball,” the senator replied.
