Many valuable learning points to learn instead.
This after the general manager and secretary of Ang Mo Kio Town Council, Victor Wong, has been removed from his duties and is under investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.
One Singaporean, Oh Bee Kut, said: “Singaporeans are looking forward to many valuable lessons from this CPIB probe.”
“We need to learn that corruption is an honest mistake to move on from without pointing fingers.”
“Given that the population density is very high at 5.5 million people, once in a while, someone will have a fault by chance.”
Other locals said no one needs to be held accountable for any lapses in Ang Mo Kio Town Council because that is a concept for countries with a blame culture.
Dui Bu Qi, another local, said: “No one in the government need to apologise or feel sorry at all.”
“This is because the pain and regret of those who did something wrong is punishment enough.”
“Saying ‘sorry’ is part of the blame culture and must be done away with.”
“If anything, it is Singaporeans from all walks of life who need to apologise for being a liability.”
