There will be another set of government officials that President Rodrigo Duterte will dismiss.
According to the president, during the campaign sortie of PDP-Laban in Cauayan City, Isabela on Wednesday, these officials are not in line with his programme against corruption.
“I will be firing another set of officials. I’m sorry. Mahirap kasi. Iyan lang ano ko, if you want to help me run the government at iyong programa ko,” he said.
(I will be firing another set of officials. I’m sorry. It is difficult. That is my concern if you want to help me run the government and my programme.)
He also criticised several officials in the Department of Agrarian Reform (DA), whose names he did not identify, for their inaction on land conversion cases.
Duterte reiterated that the unused government land should be distributed to farmers.
“You know, ako lang ang presidente ngayon. I have distributed almost 160,000 hectares,” he adds.
(You know, I am the only president. I have distributed almost 160,000 hectares.)
He also criticised the opposition candidates for not accomplishing anything.
“Bigyan mo ako ng isang project ng Otso Direcho that has a meaning or impact on the lives of the Filipino. Sige nga,” Duterte urged.
