DAVAO CITY, April 8, 2017 — President Rodrigo Duterte asked farmers to join the fight against corruption by reporter irregularities in agencies such as the Department of Agriculture.
Speaking in Nueva Ecija, President Duterte said the country needs the assistance of farmers.
“Sabi ko no corruption maski piso. Pakiusap ko lang sa inyo, if you are ready to join me then sabayan ninyo ako,” Duterte said.
Meanwhile, Duterte thanked the residents of Talavera in Nueva Ecija for their support during last year’s election.
“Why would you vote for me, you do not know me, I am not from here, I am not from Luzon,” he said.
The farmers, he said, would get farming support such as tractors through proper agencies.
“I will… I’ll buy as many as needed. ‘Yung mga tractors, bilhan ko kayo,”he said.
Duterte was a guest during the Grand Harvest Festival of the Seh Leng Agritech Corporation in Brgy. Tabacao, Talavera, Nueva Ecija last week.
