    In Leyte, thousands welcome VP Leni as their next President

    In Leyte, thousands welcome VP Leni as their next President

    Vice President Leni Robredo campaigned in Leyte on Tuesday, March 29, bringing to the people the promise that public service knows no political color. She also paid tribute to the thousands who braved the searing heat to show their support for her presidential bid.

    “Ganito pala ang itsura ng pagmamahal sa ating bayan na kahit mahirap, kahit mainit, kahit nagagastusan tayo, lumalaban pa din. Di ba lahat na laban, kapag pinaghirapan napakasarap ang katapusan? Kaya po nagpapasalamat ako sa inyong lahat,” Robredo said at the KADASIG, PINKtados Warriors People’s Rally held at the Boy Scout Monument, Government Center on Tuesday morning.

    The people’s rally was led by young PINKtados, dancers with painted bodies, a play on the Pintados of Leyte, a festival where celebrants with colorful tattoos and dazzling costumes dance in the streets of neighboring Tacloban in June every year.

    It was the second day of her three-day visit to Samar and Leyte, where Robredo has been meeting key leaders, holding dialogues with sectoral groups, and speaking at sorties and rallies.

    Earlier in the day, she visited Maslog, Eastern Samar. Afterward she visited
    Naval, Biliran; Ormoc City; and Borongan, Easter Samar where the very first beach political rally for Robredo and her running mate, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, was held.

    In Ormoc, thousands of people of all ages and from all walks of life trekked to an abandoned sugarcane field to see Robredo.

    The Vice President didn’t get much votes in Leyte in 2016, but she made sure that help was sent quickly to the province when they needed it.

    Along with partners from the private sector, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) conducted several projects including a computer literacy program, family planning sessions, the construction of classrooms for kindergarten students, providing school kits, ensured the installation and improvement of water supply system, and providing seed grants for women entrepreneurs.

    When an earthquake and typhoons upended the lives of hundreds of families, the OVP provided construction materials and relief goods for them.

    During the pandemic, personal protective equipment were distributed to various hospitals, medical centers, and regional health units.

    “Hindi sa akin mahalaga kung nanalo o natalo ako sa isang lugar dahil noong ako po nakaupo na bilang Vice President, wala na akong tiningnan na kulay. Basta kinakailangan ang aming tulong, andiyan po kami parati. Marami pong mga krisis na dumaan. Naalala ko, ako mismo 'yung pumunta noong nagkaroon ng lindol dito noong 2017. Noong nag-Typhoon Dante, Typhoon Odette, nagkaroon po kami ng relief operations dito,” Robredo said in Palo.

    “Noong nagkaroon po ng pandemic, tuloy-tuloy 'yung pagbigay namin ng mga PPE sets, ng mga medical supplies, kahit po dormitory for frontliners ginawa po natin 'yun dito sa inyo.”

    She also said that Filipinos choose their presidents only ever six years, which means it an important decision that we all make, especially for first time voters.

    “Ang pagpili ng pangulo kada anim na taon lamang. Ano po ‘yung gustong sabihin nito? Ang gusto pong sabihin nito, ang pagpipili ng pangulo, hindi nalang ito pagpili ng gusto nating kandidato. Pero ang pagpili po ng pangulo ang dinedesisyunan natin anong klaseng gobyerno ang gusto nating mamayani sa ating bayan. Kaya sana po, huwag ninyong sayangin ang pagkakataon,” she said. [End]
