Ex BSU yearbook editor airs side on fiasco

Bukidnon News, Bukidnon Updates, Campus, Controversial, Malaybalay City

As promised on our (now viral) post about a letter from a reader who complained about the “missing” Bukidnon State University yearbooks, Bukidnon Online is printing the side of the former editor-in-chief of the yearbook previously called “Pharos” (it has now been changed to “Matigda”).

The Bukidnon Online article has again caught the attention of several Bukidnon State University students. In fact, one has sent us a copy of their complaint that he claims was also sent to various national media outlets and news personalities including the Tulfo brothers. Another student also sent us copies of his official receipts where he supposedly deposited the money for the yearbook (payments were reportedly sent via One Network Bank) but has yet to receive his copy. Also, most recently, a Bukidnon Online reader also said that this issue will be tackled by Governor Jose Zubiri, Jr. during his regular radio program. Let’s wait and see.

For now, allow us to share what previous yearbook EIC John Caga-anan Adarlo said about the issue. He left this comment on our Facebook page:

John Adarlo has not left a comment or reaction about his alleged misuse of funds, however.

According to the complainant, Adarlo was spotted allegedly spending money in hotels, bars and various travels.

We asked Adarlo if it is true that he is made to pay via installment basis a certain amount of money. Sources tell Bukidnon Online that Adarlo was made to refund a certain amount of money via installment and while he is still in school.

The OSS Dean that Adarlo mentioned in his post is Dr. Teresita “Tessie” Pagud.

As of this writing, we have yet to receive any statement from the Bukidnon State University administration. We have, however, forwarded this matter again to them. We await their feedback.

Meanwhile, we have received a ton of reactions and comments from students who also said that they have already paid for their yearbooks but have not received copies. Some students said that they have already graduated and have moved to other places but haven’t received their yearbooks. Some claimed that their yearbooks had missing photos, wrong names / captions etc. Moreover, some said that their own parents already got mad because they thought they didn’t pay for the yearbooks at all.
