The Bureau of Customs (BOC) will not be hiring Mocha Uson, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, as a consultant of the agency.
The Bureau of Customs (BOC) on Thursday issued a denial over its Twitter account after ABS-CBN News reported that Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon would be appointing Uson as the bureau’s social media consultant.
“Comm. Nicanor Faeldon will not appoint Mocha Uson as BOC Social Media Consultant but she can write articles about BOC on her blog,” the statement read.
“She will be the social media consultant,” Faeldon was quoted in the report.
The news sent social media into a tizzy as netizens questioned her qualifications for the job.
Following the report, “Mocha Uson” started trending on Twitter.
Uson has been an avid supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, particularly during the campaign period for the May 2016 presidential elections.
