LTO relieves officers in NegOcc and rest of WV for “poor performance”


The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has relieved at least four local officials from their posts in Western Visayas (Region VI), including personnel stationed in Negros Occidental, in a move to improve efficiency and service quality.

LTO Chief Assistant Secretary Atty. Vigor D. Mendoza II announced the personnel changes, stating that replacements have already been designated for the vacated positions in Iloilo, Antique, and Negros Occidental. He however did identify the replacement.

The relieved officers were found to be lacking in implementing measures to enhance service delivery in their respective offices.

“Performance evaluation is an ongoing process at the LTO to ensure we have the right people in the right places,” according to Mendoza. This aligns with President Marcos’ vision of excellence in government service under ‘Bagong Pilipinas’, he stressed.

Mendoza emphasized the importance of public service, stating, “This should serve as a reminder that we, as servants of the Filipino people, have a duty to fulfill and expectations to meet in order to deliver the best possible service to our clients.”

Since taking office last July, Mendoza has implemented regular performance evaluations for LTO personnel. These evaluations assess compliance with agency directives and initiatives aimed at improving services.

The performance evaluation process will continue for all LTO offices nationwide, according to him.
