Duterte’s SONA draws cheers, support from Albayano netizens

LEGAZPI CITY, July 26 (PIA) – Albayano netizens expressed their support and admiration for President Rodrigo Duterte’s plans for the country presented in his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) yesterday.  

Dr. Cesar Chua said “The President was making points clearly to the ordinary Filipino people, and he made the points clearly and vividly to be understood by ordinary people like us!”

He furthered, “Political analysts expects to hear all that is to done in six years, hello, intellectuals, this is just the first SONA, Duterte was only reporting to the Filipinos what he will and do in the first year if his office! That is perfect for us ordinary citizens!”

Albayano journalist and China Radio International posted “What was earlier reported to be a tearjerker turned candid and straight from the hip. Digong knew nobody among the legislators except a handful believed he'll win. But now, almost all of them are on his side.”

Private school teacher Jo Omala said she likes Duterte’s reiteration of “not to do drugs” noting his sincerity in asking for cooperation in fighting illegal drugs and in protecting authorities who will be loyal in their duty yet also reminded them not to abuse their position.

“I also like the changes he proposed such as extended validity of driver’s license and his call “not to hate too much,” she added.

 King M. Reginaldo also noted the said remarks as the best part of Duterte’s SONA.

 “I love this part of the SONA of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte..The Best of All! Let me make this appeal to you: “If we cannot, as yet, love one another, then in God’s name, let us not hate each other too much,” so it was said. [applause] I say the same to you today."

Jose Dela Riva commented “just the beginning, only time can measure how great he will be as a leader, president. So far, some good policies seems to be working in his favor. I praise him for that,”

Other netizens likewise hailed the historic, peacefully rally of militant groups formerly done to express protest against past administrations by burning effigies but this time, conducted to support the president through “portraits of peace” murals.

It was also the first time for the militants to get nearer Batasan Road with the police peacefully standing nearby.

Rome Candaza reacted, “Dito ako naiyak, sa wakas nagkaron tayo ng gobyernong para sa Tao na nawala ang iringan ng pulis at mga raliyista. Totoong tao ang nasa posisyon. Ituloy natin ang gobyernong para sa Tao. Salamat PNP Chief Bato para sa pangunguna ng pagkakaisa at kapayapaan (this is where I got teary-eyed. At last we have a government for the people, with peace between the police and the rallyist. The people in position are sincere. Let us continue this kind of government. Thank you PNP Chief Bato for leading unity and peace).”

Nhaldz Bilan Bon also said “Disiplinado ang mga rallyesta militante. Walang tulakan at balyaha. Umpisa na talaga ng pagbabago, sana sa susonod pang mga SONA (the militant rallyists were disciplined, no pushing, no riots. It’s really the start of change, hoping the same for the next SONAs).”

On the president executive order on Freedom of Information, Gerald Gallenito said “At last Na aprub man graray. Tnx to d President." (At last it was approved this time. Thanks to the president).”(MAL/SAA-PIA5/Albay)
