President Rodrigo Duterte said that he will be reviewing with his Cabinet public works projects that have been delayed for year.
“So I will review with the Cabinet this one. All public works projects, which have been delayed for years, you get out immediately and I can maybe look for the money,” he said during the inauguration of the new Communications, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) Systems on January 16 at the Philippine Air Traffic Management Center, Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines Compound, Old MIA Road, Pasay City.
He added that the country is now doing good in the field of taxation and Transportation Secretary Tugade and Finance Secretary Dominguez can find way to finance public works projects.
Moreover, the President again warned public officials who are doing nothing.
“I’m warning the local government officials. I do not want to threaten you but you just do your duty also because remember I can always suspend or dismiss you if I want to,” he said.
“Administratively I can hang you. So do it, those governors and mayors who are deadwoods or who do nothing at hinayaan mo na lang kami ditong mga pulis pati the Armed Forces to take care of everything and you are not doing anything to serve your constituents including dying for your people, umalis kayo diyan,” he said.
