An amazing twist of fate. Currently, the beleaguered people of Cagayan whose homes were washed out by massive floods and whose lives have been in grave danger, took to social-media asking for assistance. They called for help to the one person they rejected last election when they overwhelmingly voted for Marcos in the Vice Presidential race. Yes, we are talking about incumbent Vice President Leni Robredo.
However, like true leaders tempered into service, Leni Robredo rushed to provide aid and coordinate timely rescue to areas in Cagayan requiring immediate assistance. Her quick and decisive actions helped minimize the casualties post-Ulysses, in the Cagayan Valley.
Of all the strong-men like Marcos and Duterte they voted last election, only Leni Robredo came to rescue them and organized much-needed relief assistance in their darkest times. Indeed, Leni is heaven-sent to the people of Cagayan and a shining example of unbiased and service-focused leadership unmatched except only by Jesse Robredo himself.
Since 1:00 AM of November 12,2020, Leni has been awake and busily making calls while closely monitoring the situation when Typhoon Ulysses hit Northern Luzon. She’s also actively updates the populace through social-media in both Twitter and Facebook, where her account has been responsive to calls for rescue and support directly on the ground. It is team-work that allows Leni to do her job efficiently and admirably. Her leadership during these times is unmatched.
All of these despite Leni’s OVP being the most under-funded of all govt agencies while Duterte holds billions of pesos in budget for ”top-secret intel funds” which the Filipino people in general have absolutely no idea on where they’re being spent and why.
If only Leni has access to a lot of funding and political influence to nudge every government agency to operate in tandem with her office, then surely she could’ve done a whole lot more. Sadly, this was not possible as the ruling party controls both chambers in the Congress and has in the past been obsessed in limiting her powers and influence by undermining her budget.
