Actor-comedian Bayani Agbayani refused the offer of being a board member at the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB), as reported by PEP today, August 11.
According to Bayani, he currently has a full schedule, as he is working on provincial tours and shows.
"Ever since naman, sa awa ng Diyos, hindi naman ako nabakante talaga," he said.
Bayani did not want to take the position because he knows that he could not completely dedicate his time to it.
The comedian said, “Papatak siya ng twice a week, five hours a day. Ang problema, iba-block off na. Halimbawa, for the whole month, kukunin ko na 'yung Wednesday at Thursday, ngayon sinabihan ako na kapag may trabaho ka, makipagpalit ka dun sa kasama mo. Eh, paano kung may trabaho din 'yung kasama ko, hindi makipagpalit sa akin?"
For Bayani, focus and commitment at work is important especially in a government post where people's taxes are being used.
“Natapat naman na nung in-appoint ako sa MTRCB board, eh talagang punung-puno. Eh ayoko naman na magtatrabaho na hindi ko naman magagampanan 'yung trabaho ko. 'Di parang niloloko ko naman 'yung ibinabayad sa akin na mga taxes ng mga tao," he explained.
