The Development Acceleration Fund should not be misconstrued as evil, we see that our Armed Forces, like the Philippine Air Force has new helicopters. These new helicopters are now ferrying foodstuffs and assorted relief goods to Zamboanga and earthquake-stricken Bohol. So, part of the DAP went to a very good and noble purpose—service to the people.
Our attitude should not be to judge so easily the objectives of the DAP. We can see that it is not used haphazardly as it goes to something good, like AFP modernization, education, relief operations and other priorities that need fund assistance.
As the President said, the government will run after thieves and the corrupt, but will use extra funds that goes to something of importance, like the new helicopters which are now being utilized daily to deliver goods, help and hope.
