A post accusing VP Leni Robredo of spending more than P1M a month in rentals alone by holding two offices circulates online.
According to the Facebook page “Leni Robredo Fashion Diary”, aside from the Boracay Mansion, Robredo is renting a space in the PNB Building in Macapagal Blvd. Based on 2010 data rent, an office space in the said building cost 900 thousand a month.
“So aside from the Boracay Mansion, meron pa palang isang office pa si Leni Porridge: PNB Bldg Macapagal. Year 2010 data rent is 900 thousand per month. So the People are spending more than 1 Million per month on office rentals pa lang. 🙄😒”
As proof, a screen capture showing that Leni Robredo is indeed a leasee of PNB Bldg can be found below.
Since when? That we don’t know but the the screen capture below gives us an idea that as early as November 2016, Robredo was already holding office in the PNB Bldg.
COA reports show that from 2008 until 2010, the Office of the VP (OVP) spent 10,001,000, 11,200,000, 11,200,000 pesos respectively.
At the rate, the current VP is spending for rentals, the OVP is eating her own words when she ditched Coconut Palace in favor of the Boracay Mansion.

To think that VP Leni Robredo chose the Boracay Mansion over the Coconut Palace because the OVP will be paying for the rental at less than half of the Coconut Palace. [CNN Philippines]
CNN Philippines quoted Robredo saying the Coconut Palace is ‘too expensive’. She told CNN Philippines she wants a simple office but good enough for ceremonial functions.
Aldrin Cabalar fumed in light of the allegation. “How in the hell FakeVP Porridge Leni Lielie need 2 lots of offices for! Don’t tell me you’re also looking for office to let as well in your province of Bicol. Damn for what, personal reasons in the expense of taxpayers money? 😡😡😡😡”
Happy Ness Uy remarked: “Like a thief of the night biglang nagkaron ng pangalawang opisina si boklo! Ong toroy!”
Dantes Hondanero commented: “Useless spending of taxpayers money on somebody who does nothing! Pathetic! Very pathetic!”
