Listen: PH President Is Speaking

President Rodrigo Duterte, the 16th President of the Philippines has delivered his more-than-2-hour state of the nation address (SONA) this afternoon before the august body of the Senate and the House of the Representatives in a joint session.

Every President has to prepare their SONA which delineates the programs and projects for their government. But for President Duterte, as the first timer didn’t stick to his prepared speech, but rather delivered as if he is giving a lecture, a sermon or a conversation.

Anyway, Duterte’s SONA is generally centered on the attainment of a clean governance by eradicating criminalities, illegal drug trades, and corruption in the government. He wanted that the people should have an insurance coverage in preparation and in securing their safety and future.

He bared his complete commitment to get rid of drug lords, drug users and pushers in the duration of his governance for 6 years. Starting he took his office last June 30, persons involved in illegal business had already reached to more than thousands apprehension and imprisonment.

One of the top plans which the President Duterte exposing to the entire citizenry of the Philippines is a “unilateral ceasefire” with the Communist of the Philippines and the New People’s Army. This would formal begin on August 20 this year as public announced by the President.

The Philippines would be facing a bright-and-secured future with a stable government run by President Rody Duterte. Filipinos would be thankful about it.
