    VP Leni promises an inclusive government for the marginalized community

    VP Leni promises an inclusive government for the marginalized community

    ISABELA CITY, Basilan ¬– Flanked by fisherfolks, presidential candidate Vice President Leni Robredo rode on a motorized wooden banca to join a “Bangkaravan” that sailed towards the Isabela City port, one of the activities of her spectacular two-day campaign trip to the province on Wednesday, March 16.

    In the evening, Robredo and her running mate, Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, held a motorcade around the city and met with the thousands of Basileños who filled the Isabela City Park for the Sahaya Basileniyo: Basilan People's Rally.

    Robredo has visited Basilan several times throughout her six-year term, bringing various projects under the Angat Buhay Program of the Office of the Vice President (OVP). The OVP has given more than P10 million worth of projects to Basilan communities. From establishing a weaving center for the Yakan Weavers to providing bancas and solar freezers to the fisherfolk community, to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “’Yan po nagagawa natin kahit napakaliit lang ng pera ng aming opisina. Pero bakit po natin ‘yun nagagawa? Nagagawa po natin ‘yun kasi nararamdaman natin kung ano ‘yung kahirapan na pinagdadaanan ninyo,” Robredo said.

    Robredo said she picked up from where her husband, Naga City Mayor and Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, left off after his sudden death in 2012.

    “’Yung mga naiwan na paniniwala ng asawa ko, 'yun po 'yung sinusundan ko. Paniniwala na ang malinis na pamamahala, ‘yun ‘yung magdadala ng pagbabago. Paniniwala na dapat nilalagay naming ang sarili naming sa komunidad. Kung kami po lider, kailangan pinapakiramdaman naming ‘yung mga kahirapan na pinagdadaanan ninyo. ‘Yun po ‘yung dahilan kung bakit kahit napakalayo ng Basilan, pabalik-baliok po ako dito. At babalik at babalik pa ako kahit po walang eleksyon,” she said.

    Isabela City Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman attested to the work ethic of Robredo, having worked together at the House of Representatives as congresswomen.

    “Kilala niya ang kahirapan dahil bago siya napasok sa politika at naging congresswoman, nasa NGO siya nagtatrabaho pumupunta sa mga komunidad. Kilala niya kung ano ang pagsisikap, kilala niya kung ano ang problema,” Turabin-Hataman said.

    Because she frequently visited the area and spoke with the people, Robredo could identify their needs and provide solutions. She vowed that this will be the kind of leadership the people can expect from her with her “Gobyernong Tapat, Angat Buhay Lahat” agenda.

    “Kasi pag binisita mong personal, nakakakwentuhan mo ang taga-doon, nararamdaman mo ‘yung kahirapan na pinagdadaanan nila. At ‘yan po ‘yung klase ng pamahalaan na pinapangako naming sa inyo,” Robredo said.

    Basilan Representative Mujiv Hataman also endorsed Robredo’s presidential bid.

    “Naiintindihan niya tayo; naiintindihan niya ang ating kasaysayan at ang ating karanasan. At dahil dito, naiintindihan niya ang mga isyung kaharap natin sa kasalukuyan, at ang mga solusyon dito,” Hataman said.

    He also said Robredo is the best chance to prevent the return in power of the Marcos regime, which had inflicted pain and hardships on the Moros during martial law, and keep the peace in the region.

    “Sa lahat ng kandidato, si Leni Robredo ang best chance ng Bangsamoro magtuloy-tuloy ang kapayapaan na tinatamasa natin ngayon. Kilala ko siya. Alam ko ang puso niya. Tiyak na ipaglalaban niya ang pangarap nating makatarungan, maunlad, at makataong Bangsamoro,” Hataman said. [End]
