The 18th City Council of Davao removed Councilor Nilo “Small” Abellera from all the committees that he is associated with.

Abellera is the committee chair of Peace and Order, Vice Chair of Committee on Public Works and Highways and member of the committee on Barangay Affairs, Finance, Ways and Means, International Relations, Education, and Tourism.

Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte said that the council needs to replace Abellera since he is always not around.

“We need to replace him because he is always absent. We can’t stop the work of the city council just because he is sick, especially that his committee (Peace and Order) is very crucial,” Duterte said.

Duterte though clarified that Abellera is still a councilor of the city since he did not file a resignation letter.
