Sen. Bam Aquino Suggestions to Pres. Duterte: "Don't Talk About Drugs & Cha-Cha During SONA"


Liberal Party's top official and opposition lawmaker, Senator Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino made an unsolicited advice to Pres. Rody Duterte on what to discuss during his highly-anticipated State of the Nation Address (SONA) this coming Monday, July 23, 2018.



Sen. Bam Aquino wants Pres. Duterte to talk about addressing problems allegedly caused by the administration-backed Reform Program and not about illegal drugs or Charter Change in the SONA 2018.



The highest-seating Aquino politician, Sen. Bam was quoted as saying "Sana pag-usapan ang mga solusyon sa pagtaas presyo sa SONA ng Pangulo. Suspindihin na itong excise tax sa petrolyo para mabigyan ng ginhawa ang mga pamilyang nalulunod sa gastos," Sen. Aquino said.

Sen. Aquino added further that "Mula sa puso daw ang SONA ngayon. Sana mula sa isang pusong may malasakit sa mahihirap na Pilipinong nasasagasaan ang mga programa ng gobyerno," Sen. Aquino said further.

Aside from Sen. Bam Aquino, his fellow re-electionist senator Grace Poe, Joseph Victor "JV" Ejercito and Nancy Binay are batting for the suspension of the excise tax on fuel imposed by the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law, which has been blamed by the opposition for the rising prices of goods.

Liberal Party President, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan also released a statement regarding the highly anticipated SONA of Pres. Rody Duterte as he is hoping that the President would also offer solutions to the rising prices of goods and other issues.



Sen. Pangilinan was quoted as saying "Sana masasabi niya sa taumbayan paano niya masosolusyonan ang problema ng pagtaas ng presyo ng mga bilihin, paano madadagdagan ang kita ng mamamayan, paano mabibigyan ng trabaho ang taumbayan," Sen. Pangilinan said in a text message to the media

Sen. Antonio Trillanes for his part gave a bleaker forecast for the President's third SONA.

The Senator was quoted as saying "“I expect Duterte to rant and lie to the Filipino people like he always does,” Trillanes said in a statement. “Particularly, he would likely create a false bleak scenario for our country to justify the need for Cha-cha and shift to federalism as soon as possible.” Sen. Trillanes stated.
