Roque says UniTeam to continue Duterte projects

UniTeam senatorial candidate Harry Roque assured Filipinos that their group would continue the good programs of President Rodrigo Duterte, especially the war on drugs and the Build, Build, Build (BBB) program in infrastructure.

“Ipagpapatuloy po natin ang mga pagbabago na nasimulan ng ating Presidente. Ang pangako po namin itutuloy natin ang lahat ng magagandang programa ni Presidente Duterte,” Roque said during a rally in Caloocan.

“Itutuloy din natin ang patuloy na pag-unlad ng lahat ng Pilipino. Ang gusto po natin lahat ng Pilipino po ay maka-ahon po dito sa pandemya at dito sa digmaan sa Europa,” he said.

President Rodrigo Duterte waged an aggressive anti-narcotics campaign to deal with the rampant drug problem shortly after assuming the presidency in 2016.

On the other hand, the BBB is the centerpiece program of the Duterte administration meant to usher in the “Golden Age of Infrastructure” to support economic development.

Government data showed that the BBB program accelerated public infrastructure expenditure to 7.3 percent at the end of the Duterte administration from an average of 2.9 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) during the administration of the late President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Roque likewise thanked President Duterte for charting the country’s course during the pandemic.

“Tignan niyo naman ang nagawa ng ating Presidente, mapayapa na ang ating mga komunidad dahil nagtatagumpay na tayo sa giyera ng ipinagbabawal na droga. Nagtatagumpay na din po tayo sa COVID19,” he said.

“Alam niyo ba ang sinasabi ng mga eksperto? Tayo daw ang magkakaroon ng pinakamabilis na paglago ng ekonomiya ngayong taon. Salamat kay President Duterte,” he added.
