    Robredo calls for honest government to improve people’s lives: “Sa ating pamamahala, laylayan ang magiging bagong sentro”

    Robredo calls for honest government to improve people’s lives:
    “Sa ating pamamahala, laylayan ang magiging bagong sentro”

    Vice President Leni Robredo officially launched her presidential campaign in her hometown of Naga City on Tuesday, February 8, as the city welcomed her back with open arms, and sent her off on the fight of her life with supporters lining the streets, mob dance parties, and a noise barrage.

    “Hindi ako natatakot. Hindi ako kinakabahan, dahil nang tinawag ko kayong gisingin ang natutulog pang lakas, buong-buo ang naging tugon ninyo: Tumulong kayo sa nangangailangan, pinakain ang nagugutom, nagbigay-lingap sa nasalanta at may sakit, nakinig sa kuwento ng bawat Pilipinong dumadaing at naghahanap ng kasangga sa kanilang mga suliranin,” Robredo said in her speech at the Plaza Quezon.

    Robredo, whose late husband was the much-revered Naga City mayor and Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, said she chose Bicol for her send-off because it was where she was born and raised, where her values were formed, where she met her spouse, and where they raised their three daughters.

    Robredo emphasized it was in her hometown when she saw it was possible to replace the old, corrupted style of politics with hard work and good governance and improve people’s lives.

    “Dito natin naipakita: Ang pag-angat, makakamtan nang hindi dinadaan sa salapi o sa palakasan, kundi sa sama-samang pagpapasya ng landas tungo sa kinabukasan,” she said. “Kailangang wakasan ang mismong luma at bulok na pulitika na ugat ng mga suliraning dumidiin sa Pilipino. Ito ang diwa ng ating laban.”

    Robredo said the key to achieving this goal is an honest president that leads by example, and who puts the people first.

    “At hindi na dapat pinagdedebatehan: Ang pinuno – lalo na ang pangulo – dapat laging nagsasabi ng totoo, dapat sumusunod sa lahat ng patakaran, dapat walang-dudang pinangangalagaan ang kaban ng bayan. Ang pinuno, dapat manguna sa pagiging huwaran; dapat siyang manguna sa pagtatakwil ng palakasan, sa pagsunod sa mga patakaran, at sa pagsigurong mananagot ang mga nanlilinlang sa taumbayan at nagsasamantala sa kapangyarihan,” she said, adding:

    “Ang gobyernong tapat, tumototoo sa kanyang tungkulin sa taumbayan. Tapat siya sa mismong dahilan kung bakit nilikha ang pamahalaan: Para sa tao.”

    Robredo’s presidential campaign kickoff started as early as 7:30am from the Angat Buhay Village in the town of Lupi, a relocation site for families who lost their homes in typhoons that hit Camarines Sur in 2020. Robredo described it as an example of a successful collaboration between the residents, the private sector, and an honest leadership that listens to its people.

    From Lupi, Robredo, accompanied by her children, Aika, Tricia, and Jillian, made pit stops in the towns of Libmanan and Tigaon, Iriga City, and finally, her hometown, Naga City, traveling for more than 10 hours.

    Stretches of the highway and every whistlestop burst in different shades of pink, Robredo’s campaign color, as supporters waited for Bicol’s favorite daughter.

    Robredo said should she be elected, her government will listen to the grievances of the people.

    “Isang pamahalaang magmamadaling sumaklolo pag dumaing ka, makikipagpuyatan para mapaginhawa ka, lulusong sa baha para iahon ka,” she said. “Susuotan natin ng tsinelas ang gobyerno at patatawirin sa mga pilapil papunta sa iyo. Sa ating pamamahala, laylayan ang magiging bagong sentro.”

    Robredo said with an honest government, there will be funding for proper health care and education. There will be jobs available and assistance for small businesses.

    “Ang unang hakbang sa pangarap nating angat buhay lahat ay ang pagpili ng gobyernong tapat,” Robredo said. “Alam natin kung paanong maaabot ito-- dahil mula pa noong mga panahon na abugado ako para sa mahihirap, hanggang sa Kongreso, hanggang ngayon bilang Pangalawang Pangulo, nakita ko ang naidudulot ng paglilingkod na nakaugat sa katapatan at nakasentro sa laylayan.”

    Rallying an estimated 15,000 people in the Quezon Plaza crowd, including almost 100,000 who watched online, Robredo ended her address with fighting resolve: “Tara. Ipananalo na natin ito.” [End]
