PBBM proclaims himself VP Sara’s ‘official BFF’

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Saturday openly expressed his support for Vice President Sara Duterte, who recently resigned from the governing Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats party amid the ongoing political discord. During the launch of a new pier in Liloan, Cebu, Marcos called himself Duterte's "official BFF (best friends forever)" after the Vice President introduced him to give his speech. The Chief Executive also assured that he remains the Vice President's biggest fan. "The reason I made her laugh (is) because I told her here amid what is happening, I've just officially designated myself as your self-appointed official BFF," Marcos said. "I'm sorry, but whether you like it or not, I'm still your number one fan," he added. The Chief Executive said this while House Speaker Martin Romualdez, also the president of Lakas-CMD, was in attendance, along with former Liloan mayor and now Tourism Secretary Christina Frasco and husband Cebu 5th District Representative Duke Frasco. UniTeam, the duo comprising the country's highest-ranking officials, recently faced uncertainty when news emerged last week about a lower house coup targeting Romualdez, the President's cousin. The coup was allegedly orchestrated by Pampanga 2nd District Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who served as Duterte's mentor.

Join DepEd agenda, Sara asks private sector

Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte on Thursday urged the private sector to join the government in implementing the Department of Education’s MATATAG agenda. “As the vice president and secretary of Education, I strongly encourage the private sector to join hands with the government and our development partners to ensure that we can achieve our objectives in education,” Duterte said in a speech for the Department of Education Partners Convergence. “With the help of our partners, we can provide alternative ways of learning, and develop lifelong learning skills, which will enable students to learn in the safety of their homes, especially during emergencies and disruptions,” she added. Duterte said learners will recognize that true learning is an ongoing process and that they never stop growing and developing as individuals through the MATATAG agenda. “They will remain committed to continuous self-improvement and self-reflection, finding ways to improve and expand their own knowledge and skills so that they can better support those around them,” she said. Duterte said that “being matatag” means cultivating resilience, perseverance, and determination, not only in their own studies but also in supporting others who may be struggling or disadvantaged. “Our matatag learners will be the pillars of strength and stability for their fellow learners, providing a steady hand to guide them through the ups and downs of their educational journeys. And these learners will define the future of the Philippines,” she added. Duterte said Filipino children must be given a chance to compete on an equal playing field with the rest of the world. “They are the future of our nation and investing in their education today will bring great benefits to our country in years to come,” she said. “We greatly appreciate the support we have received from our partners and stakeholders, but we also recognize the challenges we still face in achieving our goals,” the Vice President added. She also commended all the participants who have come together from different organizations with a shared goal of improving the lives of learners and people in developing communities. “To be a matatag partner means to be strong and unwavering in the face of challenges and adversity. It means being steadfast in our dedication to the learning and growth of our Filipino learners and acknowledging the essential role that teamwork and solidarity play in achieving these goals,” Duterte said. “As Matatag partners, we recognize that education is not just about academic achievement, but it is also about personal growth, building character, and developing life skills. And, ultimately, to be a Matatag partner means to be part of something greater than ourselves,” she added. In the past two months, the DepEd has gathered representatives of Official Development Assistance (ODA) partners to align their programs to the MATATAG agenda. “Our ODA partners provided insights and suggestions for regions that may need more programs, and they identified the key areas into which partners can provide their technical assistance,” Duterte said. Duterte said local partners also expressed their support to reinforce the MATATAG agenda by renewing their commitment to providing relevant assistance to the Department of Education. “Let us work together to prioritize our interventions in education, including increasing the number of quality teachers, ensuring that our school facilities are adequate, and providing access to modern technologies that will enhance the learning experience of our students,” she added.

VP Sara: We defeated the ‘devil’

DAVAO CITY — Vice President Sara Duterte on Wednesday admitted that she avoided mentioning the New People’s Army which she regards as the “devil’s name”, but has only realized the need to speak about it to defeat them. “We needed to speak of the devil if only to defeat the devil. And we did,” she said in her speech during the Davao City’s first anniversary as an insurgency-free city. “But speak of the devil not with fear but with the resolve, the bravery, the tenacity of real patriots determined to defend our fellow Filipinos, particularly our children, and our homeland.” The Vice President clarified that she avoided mentioning the “devil’s name” in order not to dignify its presence or acknowledge the monstrosity of its terrorist acts over the past 53 years. “I thought that mentioning ‘New People’s Army’ added more air into their swollen state of madness and encouraged them to unleash more destruction and death and string another cycle of violence for the people to suffer from,” Duterte said. She recounted the terrorism perpetrated by the NPA which includes the death of a four-month-old girl in Talakag, Bukidnon, following an NPA ambush in November 2016 and the death of a vendor who died five days after falling into a coma after he was hit by a landmine that the NPA detonated in Mandug here in May 2017. “The threat of a terror group like the NPA to the lives of Filipinos, the future of our children, and our most cherished democratic ideals are real. Let us look back at Paquibato when it was still under the shadows of the NPA,” Duterte said. She added that during that time, most children were not getting enough nutrition and many were out of school — a vulnerability exploited by the NPA for recruitment. “There was a scarcity of government services and basic infrastructure because Paquibato was an NPA territory and this made the people more miserable,” Duterte said.     The post VP Sara: We defeated the ‘devil’ appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

VP Sara highlights stronger Halal industries

In an effort to attract more tourists to the country, Vice President Sara Duterte underscored the need to strengthen the Halal industries or food and products permitted by the laws of Islam. In separate courtesy calls to Duterte on Thursday, Malaysian Ambassador Abdul Malik Melvin Castelino and Brunei Darussalam Ambassador Megawati Manan said boosting the halal industries in the Philippines will make the country more friendly for Muslim communities. The Vice President said she agreed to establishing programs aimed at strengthening the halal to better serve Muslims and foreign tourists. “With regard to the Halal industry, yes, I agree with you. When I was mayor in Davao City, one of our bigger projects was about tourism. And we were missing out a segment of tourists because there’s much (of them who asked) how strong is the halal industry,” the Vice President told Ambassador Megawati. “Admittedly, we did not have before so we created the Davao City Halal Council to discuss how we can strengthen the halal industry in Davao City,” she added. She also shared that she built a halal slaughterhouse during her term as mayor of Davao City. Meantime, the Vice President also appealed to the collective effort of stakeholders “to have our sights set on an active call for inclusion.” “To all of us, let us never dim the lights of inclusive education,” Duterte said in her keynote speech during the Language and Inclusion Summit at Marriot Hotel in Pasay City. She underscored the Department of Education’s MATATAG agenda in basic education which “only becomes truly meaningful and effective if we can put inclusivity at the center of what we do — if we only make inclusivity the heart and the soul of our reforms and efforts to improve basic education.” “This means that our MATATAG Agenda does not forget, discriminate against, or disregard Indigenous Peoples or our Lumad brothers and sisters, our Muslim communities, or people with disabilities,” said Duterte.

P19-M illegal drugs intercepted at NAIA

The Bureau of Customs Port of NAIA reported the interceptions of an abandoned luggage containing illegal drugs with an estimated value of P19 million. Customs district collector Atty. Yasmin Mapa disclosed on Wednesday that an abandoned bag from PAL flight PR737 from Bangkok originating from Addis Ababa was found to contain at least 2.8 kilos of suspected shabu. Mapa said that the illegal drugs were found during inventory of abandoned baggage conducted at NAIA Terminal 1. BoC X-ray Intelligence Group chief Atty. Lourdes Mangauang said that based on the baggage tag, the owner of luggage was owned by a certain Sara Tabitya, identified as a Ugandan national upon verification with the Bureau of Immigration. Mangauang added that during the inspection of the said luggage, BoC-NAIA duty X-ray operator Norman Peñaflor discovered a suspicious image when it was passed through the X-ray machine.

Bukidnon solon induction swells Lakas-CMD registry

Lakas-CMD retains control of the House of Representatives after welcoming another member on Tuesday, bringing the party’s total strength in the chamber to 71. Bukidnon Rep. Jonathan Keith Flores, the newest member of the House’s most prominent political clan, was sworn into office by  Speaker Martin Romualdez. “I thank Cong. Flores for joining the right political party whose commitment is to work towards a better future for our nation. We are honored to welcome you today as the 71st House member of Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats, a dedicated advocate for positive change,” said Romualdez, the party’s president. Some House leaders, including House majority leader Mannix Dalipe and chairperson emeritus and former president, now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, witnessed the event. The party’s growing membership, according to Romualdez, is to steamroll legislative support to the presidential agenda for prosperity and socio-economic development. “Let us join together in our drive for meaningful progress in addressing our country’s critical issues,” said the House chief. The late then-president Fidel V. Ramos founded and served as chairperson emeritus of the Lakas-CMD in 1999, which Romualdez now leads with Vice President Sara Duterte. During the campaign season for last year’s polls, the Lakas-CMD actively supported the Marcos-Duterte tandem and is now considered an administration party. The number of its members ballooned days before Marcos held his first State of the Nation Address in July. Meanwhile, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Tuesday urged Northern Luzon lawmakers to strengthen the “Solid North” regional bloc and maintain its unity and relevance for the country’s benefit. The President made the call during the oathtaking ceremony of the newly elected officials of the Northern Luzon Alliance held in Malacañang. In his speech, Marcos recalled the difficult times when the group was considered politically irrelevant. “(T)hose times that we went through that, the Ilocano bloc remained solid. And the result is that we are now here celebrating the taking the oath of new officers of the Northern Alliance here in the Palace,” Marcos said.
