    In opening salvo for official campaign, Leni Robredo rallies people: “Sumama po kayo sa laban nating ito dahil ito ay para sa ating lahat!"

    In opening salvo for official campaign, Leni Robredo rallies people: “Sumama po kayo sa laban nating ito dahil ito ay para sa ating lahat!"

    NAGA CITY – In her opening salvo for the official campaign for the May 9 national elections, presidential candidate Leni Robredo rallied the people to join her in changing the old and corrupted kind of politics that has frustrated generations of Filipinos and deprived them of having better lives.

    “Hanggang hindi po natin pinapalitan ang luma at bulok na klase ng pulitika, hanggang hindi po natin nabibigyan ng inspirasyon at pag-asa ang ating mga kababayan, talagang walang magbabago,” Robredo, the incumbent Vice President and leader of the opposition, told the crowd that gathered in the Angat Buhay Village in Lupi, Camarines Sur early Tuesday, February 8.

    “Kaya ngayong umaga po sa pag-umpisa ng ating kampanya, niyayaya ko po kayong lahat na samahan kami—sumama po kayo sa laban nating ito dahil ito ay para sa ating lahat. Kaya po ito, malakas ang loob ko dahil kasama ko kayo. Malakas po ang loob ko dahil alam ko na kahit anong hirap ang pagdaanan natin, kakayanin natin dahil magkakasama tayo,” she said.

    The Robredo presidential campaign kicked off from the Angat Buhay Village, a housing and resettlement project for more than a hundred families who lost their homes when typhoons Quinta, Rolly, and Ulysses hit the province in late 2020. Angat Buhay is the flagship poverty alleviation program of the Office of the Vice President (OVP) that Robredo launched in 2016.

    Robredo said she takes pride in the collaboration that took place among the residents, the local government of Lupi, the University of Nueva Caceres, and the OVP to rebuild their homes. The design of the homes was left to the families, with assistance from the University of Nueva Caceres. The OVP provided the housing materials while the LGU provided the land.

    When she arrived at the village on Tuesday morning, Robredo said she saw one home with an extension, and another with floor tilings. “Paunti-unti lang po,” Robredo quoted the families telling her about their home improvements. She said she is extremely proud of what the village has achieved.

    “Ito ang pinaka halimbawa na kapag ang gobyerno tapat sa kanyang panunungkulan, pag ang gobyerno bumababa at pinapakiramdaman ang pangangailangan ng taong bayan, napapapunta sa tama ang pera na nasa kaban ng bayan,” Robredo said, adding:

    “Heto po ‘yung sinasabi natin na pag ang gobyerno tapat, talagang aangat ang buhay ng lahat.”

    From Lupi, Robredo, running mate Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, and their Senate slate headed to Libmanan. Their next pit stops are Tigaon and Iriga City. The campaign kickoff will culminate with a grand rally in Naga City, where Robredo has lived most of her life.

    Robredo, whose late husband was the much-revered Naga City and Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, explained why she chose a hometown campaign:

    “Sa Bicol ako ipinanganak, dito ako lumaki, dito ako nag-aral. Dito ako nakapag-asawa. Dito kami bumuo ng pamilya. Dito ako nagtrabaho. Kaya natutuwa ako dahil sa pagsabak ko sa pinakamahirap na laban ng aking buhay, dito ako sa inyo magpapaalam.”

    If she wins in the May 9 elections, Robredo will be the first Bicolano President and country’s third female President. [End]
