National Irrigation Administration (NIA) Chief Peter Tiu Laviña has resigned from his post amid corruption allegations.
Laviña on his Facebook page on Tuesday said he wanted to quietly leave his post but he had to address the intrigues.
"Recently, there had been efforts to discredit me again. There are rumors circulating that I have asked money from NIA contractors. These are not true!" he said in a separate post.
Laviña said he decided to resign to spare President Rodrigo Duterte's administration from unnecessary intrigues.
"I have neither personal vested interest in it nor ill intent towards NIA and the whole government, which we are trying to reform," he said.
He said he will continue to serve the Filipinos even if he is no longer working for the government.
"This is your water boy, signing off!" he said, bidding his post good bye.
His resignation was also confirmed by NIA, saying Laviña rendered his irrevocable resignation this week effective Monday.
"As protocol, the second highest position will assume his post," NIA Public Affairs and Information Staff Filipina P. Bermudez said.
