Jubahib faces another 30-day suspension

DAVAO del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib faces another 30-day preventive suspension, just days before he was set to return to work.

The suspension stemmed from Jubahib’s participation in a rally against Northern Davao Electric Cooperative (Nordeco). The governor has been supporting the move to transfer the province’s electricity franchise to the Davao Light and Power Co.

On April 10, the Office of the President placed Jubahib under a 60-day preventive suspension over a vehicle based on the case filed by 2nd District Board Member Orly Amit. The order found that the governor committed “grave abuse of authority and oppression.”

The governor is set to return to the Capitol on Monday, June 10, but received another order for suspension. 

The four-page suspension order, signed by Executive Secretary Lucas P. Bersamin on June 4, reads: “The urgent suspension is Granted under Section 53(a) and (b) of Republic Act 7160 and Section 1.8 of the Administrative Code No. 23, Series of 1992, as amended. Governor Edwin I. Jubahib is placed under Preventive Suspension  for 30 days effective immediately upon receipt.”
