Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga director Abner Caga on Monday became officer-in-charge (OIC) of the government’s public information agency.
Caga replaced PIA Director General Harold Clavite, who resigned from his post amid corruption allegations.
The appointment of Caga was ordered by Communications Secretary Martin Andanar.
“In the exigency of the service and in view of the separation from public office of Harold E. Clavite, Director Abner M. Caga, Regional Director of PIA Regional Office XIII, is hereby designated as the OIC of the PIA Central Office, effective 02 September 2019,” Andanar said.
“As OIC, Director Caga shall enjoy limited powers which are confined to functions of administration and shall ensure that the Office continues its usual activities,” he added. By CLC
