President Duterte’s second State of the Nation Address (SONA) will be nothing however a litany of lies and pretend achievements, Sen. Leila de Lima on Sunday (July 23).
“(So) what will he brag about during the SONA? The killings? The lies?” she requested.
“Let me remind him that he has already gone beyond his self-imposed three to six month deadline that he promised during his campaign,” she mentioned.
Instead of attempting to justify his brutal drug crackdown, Duterte ought to clarify to the nation about his unfulfilled guarantees, in line with De Lima.
“The drugs are still there. It thrived once more in Bilibid. Why? Because they allowed these drug convicts to do their thing, in exchange for testifying against me. How about the true drug lords? Were there any arrests? How about those with corruption cases, didn’t they release them?” she mentioned.
“How about ENDO? How about the salaries of the police and military? How is the traffic? Have prices of basic commodities gone down? Has the peso’s value increased? Why is the government allowing China to take over our territory in West Philippine Sea?” she added.
