The secretary then cited issues regarding the release of four-wheel vehicle license plates, bigger license plates for motorcycle, and the Motor Vehicle Inspection System program.

“Let’s all make this inauguration a celebration of sorts. But as we make it a celebration of sorts, we make it a covenant to ourselves working here that it will be a covenant of corruption-free, a covenant of shortened processes, a covenant of real service to the Filipino people,” Tugade added.
