Government officials highlight Duterte’s active leadership
President Rodrigo Duterte personally addressed the nation’s worries and paid attention to the requirements of government organizations.
Duterte, according to the Office of Civil Defense administrator and undersecretary Ricardo Jalad, was a model leader who was actively involved in all disaster response efforts during his six-year mandate.
“Every tragedy requires active leadership from you. The report is very much needed at this point. Pumupunta pa kaya dun in the place. When the President is gone, his cabinet secretaries are also gone (his direct management style). He demanded that we come in right away. He personally travels to the crisis zone. The Cabinet secretaries must be present if the President is), “Jalad gave an interview to the Philippine News Agency on Sunday at the “Salamat, PRRD” event held at Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
Jalad claimed that Duterte’s administration coordinated the disaster relief efforts of other government institutions.
He praised Duterte for mandating the construction of backup operation centers for the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) in key areas of Visayas and Mindanao.
Pension arrears have been paid, according to Philippine Veterans Affairs Office administrator Undersecretary Ernesto Carolina, and health care benefits have improved.
In another interview, he stated, “It was during his time that the veterans felt they were significant. Talaga namang nitong panahon lang niya naramdaman ng mga beterano na binibigyan sila ng pagpapahalaga.”
While the Department of Health established veterans’ wards in the provinces, funds and medications were given to the Veterans Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City.
The Department of Migrant Workers bill was signed into law by Duterte, who was commended for it by Gemma Sotto, head of the United Filipino Global International, which represents overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
She also complimented Senator Christopher “Bong” Go for leading the effort to establish Malasakit Centers at public hospitals across the nation, which has been a significant aid to OFWs.
