President Rodrigo Duterte aired his frustrations over the corruption in the government anew.
KAMI learned that for President Duterte, the Filipinos should look for a new leader like former President Ferdinand Marcos.
In a report by the GMA News Online (author Virgil Lopez), President Duterte said that he could not stop the corruption even if he rules for 20 years.
“Kaya sabi ko nawalaan na ako ng gana. At totoo sabihin ko nagsisi ako kasi akala ko within the constitutional powers na ibinigay sa akin, kaya ko,” the President said.
“Sa batas na ito, constitution, even if you give me 20 years I cannot do it. Maghanap uli kayo ng Marcos. Or someday, somehow, somewhere that fellow will be elected in the generations to come,” he added.
President Duterte also said that the economy of the Philippines would never reach “even half what Hong Kong will be in 30 years.”
“Kung sabihin mo mag-improve tayo beyond the level that we find ourselves economically, politically, well I’m sorry, I’m telling you hindi dadating ‘yan,” Duterte said.
In a previous report by KAMI, President Duterte has finally commented on the issue between Filipino and Chinese vessel. He said that people should wait for the result of the investigation and let the side of China be heard first.
