CHED Chief Patricia Licuanan Resigns After Receiving a Call from Executive Sec. Medialdea

The chairperson of the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) Patricia Licuanan has resigned from her post amid questions raised on her foreign trips and after receiving a call from Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea calling her resignation from office.


In a prepared statement released to the media, the former CHEd chairperson said that "it is time to go" after receiving a call from The Palace over the weekend asking her to resign from her office as chairperson of CHEd.

According to Licuanan "while my term ends in July 2018, I have decided it is time to go," she said. Although the former CHEd chief resigned from office, she vehemently denied the accusations against her. She just noted that "It is time to resign as my continued presense in CHEd is inimical to the interests of the institution."

The former CHEd chairperson who was appointed by former Pres. Noynoy Aquino also hinted that there might be people who were really determined to oust her but did not mention any names.

Licuanan also said that she was puzzled on who gave her internal travel documents to Pwersa ng Bayaning Atleta (PBA) Rep. Jericho Nograles.

Former chairperson Licuanan was quoted as saying "Only a few offices in CHED had access to these. These are internal documents to support the administrative release of funds, and while I sign the internal documents of my own travels, my signing was always based on an official travel authority from MalacaƱang." she noted.

Licuanan also defended herself by saying that the person who are allegedly determined to remove her from office then turned to accusing her of mismanagement and corruption on the K to 12 Transition Program.
