President Rodrigo Duterte has emerged from a five-day hibernation spreading lonely love and holding again on the cussing.
“So I am filled with nice feeling. I love you all at mahal ko kayong lahat,” stated Duterte in a speech at a army camp in Butuan, his first public occasion since occurring an unscheduled relaxation interval.
Duterte stated he was all the time serious about the welfare of his troopers and that was no jolke.
“Because you are always there out in the fields, ang isip ko rin nasa inyo lang palagi, kung paano ko mapaganda at maprotektahan kayo,” stated Duterte.
“I talk from the heart. Hindi ako bolador. Bastos tuloy ang bunganga ko. Pero when I say that, it is all with sincerity,” he added.
Duterte advised troopers that their willingness to sacrifice their lives for the nation wouldn’t go unnoticed and unrewarded.
“Alam ko na you bear the brunt of fighting the war. Ang masabi ko lang sa inyo, you have a — kasama ninyo ako sa lahat ng bagay. In all of your — mga kailangan ninyo, may priority kayo sa gobyerno ngayon. Lahat ng kailangan ninyo, kung maibigay ko, ibibigay ko,” stated Duterte who has promised to give new weapons, new gear, new medical services and a P50 billion fund to guarantee their kids’s schooling.
“Nasasaktan ako pagka may nadisgrasya. But ang consuelo ninyo, hindi kayo madehado sa armas at sa lahat. Lalo na sa pangangailangan ninyo. At alam ko, alam ko ang nasa ulo ninyo, always ang pamilya ninyo,” he added.
