PLDT acts on Duterte complaint regarding 8888 hotline

“We are currently taking steps to address the concern expressed by the President to improve the public’s access to the Citizen’s Complaint Center 8888 hotline number,” PLDT’s Ramon Isberto said after President Rodrigo Duterte told the telecommunications company to improve the 8888 hotline.

President Duterte said on February 24 during PDP Laban Cebu Campaign Rally “if you see corruption, tell me. Call 8888. Bong, add another trunk line.”

“The present setup can’t accommodate all the calls. It’s always busy. Tell PLDT. If not, I’ll shut down their business. Oo, that’s true. I don’t want to brag, but they owe government eight billion. No President has ever asked for payment,” he added.
