ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the local government of Taguig City has been putting up "I Love Taguig" banners stating that the city has "lower taxes, no number coding (for vehicles), better public service, and bans corruption."
According to the report, the Taguig City government made this move amid its simmering legal dispute with Makati City over the ownership of a large part of the upscale Fort Bonifacio. "In a July 30 ruling penned by Associate Justice Marlene Gonzales-Sison, the Court of Appeals 6th division upheld several presidential fiats declaring Fort Bonifacio as part of Makati," the article explained.
The government of Makati City has claimed that members of the Taguig Public Order and Safety Office once ganged up on a Makati police patrol car at the intersection of Lawton St. and Kalayaan. Taguig City has maintained through its Twitter posts that the financial hub remains part of its territory.
