Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno is willing to step down once the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) formally serves his suspension arising from the tax settlement case involving Ajinomoto Phils. Corp.

It can be recalled that the 60-day Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) issued by the Court of Appeals (CA) preventing his suspension expired last Tuesday, October 4. The Office of the Ombudsman found probable cause against Moreno and Public Services Officer II Glenn Bañez for violating the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (R.A. No. 3019 ). More details in article HERE.

The DILG has sought clarification from the CA regarding the matter due to a pending case in the CA. Read more Sun Star article by Pamela Jay OrIas HERE.

In case Moreno steps down, Vice Mayor Rainier Joaquin Uy and City Councilor Zaldy Ocon, will take over as mayor and vice-mayor, respectively.
