THE RESIGNATION of UST Faculty Union (USTFU) executive vice-president Rene Luis Tadle as board member of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) earned praise from Father Rector Tamerlane Lana, O.P.

Tadle resigned in the light of the issues hounding Tesda Director General Dante Liban.

According to Fr. Lana, Tadle’s decision is consistent with the University’s values.

“We are proud of Mr. Tadle,” Fr. Lana said.

Meanwhile, Tadle explained his move. “I have asked for Mr. Liban’s resignation, so it’s only right that I tend my resignation as well,” he said.

Tadle believes in the veracity of the evidence presented by a fact-finding committee on alleged anomalies revolving around Liban’s issuance of use of Tesda funds.

Tadle also believes that with the growing protests of career officers of Tesda and the concerns raised by the Authority’s institutional partners and other sectors against the Tesda leadership, Liban has lost the moral ascendancy to carry out his mandate.

Liban’s has resigned upon the request of President Macapagal-Arroyo.

Tadle spent four years in Tesda. He was appointed by then President Joseph Estrada in 1999 and was retained by President Macapagal in 2002.
