President Rodrigo Roa Duterte assured the public that development projects would continue to be implemented across the country as he graced the 2nd Quarterly National Executive Officers and National Board Meeting of the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) and the 5th Continuing Local Legislative Education Program (CLLEP) in Iloilo.

In his speech, the President asserted that he would focus on the continuing projects of his predecessors, noting that public funds will be equally distributed.

“In the scheme of things now, if you are just worried about the distribution of the wealth of the nation in form with budget and what you get.  Ah wala ho kayong problema diyan,” the President said.

“I have always instructed and that is my standing instruction all the way until matapos ako, God willing.  Ah meron ‘yang national plan and I think it was Arroyo’s time sabi ko pati ‘yung kay Aquino, kopyahin lang ninyo ‘yan and distribute the public works, money equally all throughout,” he added.

The President also underscored that no politics would be involved in these development projects to ensure the welfare of the public.
