Nov 4, 2019 @ 10:05

Cainta, Rizal Mayor Kit Nieto has issued a public apology after he was photographed riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

In a Facebook post, Nieto said he rode the motorcycle in a barong Tagalog to attend a wedding.

“I offer no excuses for breaching the law.. i only attempted to explain what happened and why i did it.. but it does not in any way exempt me from complying with what is required by our laws,” he said.

Nieto acknowledge he must have been more mindful about following the law considering his position as a public official.

Some critics, including broadcaster Erwin Tulfo, had bashed the mayor for riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

Nieto said he will be going to the Land Transportation Office on November 4 to secure his citation ticket and pay the corresponding fine.

“I will thereafter proceed to the DILG office to face any diaciplinary action that may be meted accordingly inclusive of A sanction that would require me to vacate my office,” he said.
