Pres. Duterte to Personally Supervise Projects in Sulu & Basilan to Fight Corruption


The very first President from the Mindanao, Pres. Rody Duterte promised to his constituents that he will personally supervise development projects in the neglected provinces of Sulu and Basilan. The statement of Pres. Duterte was released to the media during a recent anti-corruption summit in  MalacaƱang.


Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "Itong dito sa Jolo, pati Basilan, it will be undertaken by the Office of the President ad it will be handled by the miliary. At ako mismo ang magtingin doon, the hospitals and all. Otherwise, walang dadating doon," the President said.

The 71-year-old President pitched sending the military's engineering brigade to assist in the completion of projects.


 "Ako na mismo ang mag-supervise. ibigay ko sa engineering batallion. You go to down Sabah. Construct the roads there. Mga engineering brigades there so may makuha po ako diyan kabutihan."

Pres. Duterte added further "I'm not casting aspersion but that's the cold reality. It's either I do not help, I will withold the money or help and do it." Pres. Duterte said.

Before becoming the President of the Republic, former mayor Duterte has promised to eliminate corruption during his term as he expressed dismay at the corruption practices plaguing some infrastructure projects at the local government level.


The President from Mindanao renewed his promise to combat corruption under his watch, saying such problem has hampered the country's economic development.
