DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said he will not hesitate to continue the good programs initiated by President Benigno Aquino 3rd and former president and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo if the projects would help the country’s further improvement.
In his speech during his campaign rally in Malabon, Duterte said that good programs of presidents Aquino and Arroyo like the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) will not be stopped.
Aquino has continued the projects of the Arroyo administration, including the 4Ps and the Public-Private Partnership program.
“It is crazy to stop them just because they are programs implemented by previous administrations,” Duterte said.
The tough talking mayor has consistently said that he will, in fact, improve the 4Ps by adding a sack of rice every month.
“I will not waste government money and discontinue projects that are beneficial to the people,” he said.
Duterte then criticized Liberal Party standard bearer Manuel Roxas 2nd for threatening people with stopping 4Ps if the people don’t vote for him.
