The “Build, Build, Build” of the Duterte Administration

The “Build, Build, Build” of the Duterte Administration

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

 

THE NEW ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO “BUILD, BUILD, BUILD”….THEN WHAT?

HOW CAN THE GOVERNMENT AFFORD TO SPEND FOR NEW INFRASTRUCTURES IF IT CANNOT EVEN FINISH A SIMPLE PROJECT SUCH AS EFFECTIVE DRAINAGE SYSTEM AROUND MANILA, MANY OF WHICH ARE LEFT UNFINISHED DUE TO LACK OF BUDGET? AND, THERE IS YET AN IMPORTANT ISSUE ON THE DOABLE OPTION IN DIVERTING THE TRAFFIC FROM THE MAIN THOUROUGHFARES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THERE IS A NEED TO IMPROVE THE FACILITIES OF THE PHLIPPINE ARMY, PHILIPPINE NAVY AND COAST GUARDS. THE MILITARY IS SO DEPENDENT ON DONATIONS. THE WHOLE LENGTH OF THE COASTAL AREAS AROUND THE ARCHIPELAGIC COUNTRY ARE INADEQUATELY PROTECTED DUE TO THE LACK OF SHIPS AND PATROLS BOATS. ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC. ET.

 

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LEAVE THE CONSTRUCTION OF INFRASTRUCTURES TO FOREIGN INVESTORS, PERIOD. ON THE OTHER HAND, IT SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON THE REPAIR OF WHAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUILT AS THESE STRUCTURES ARE SHAMEFULLY DILAPIDATED. GOVERNMENT LEADERS SHOULD WORK ON THE PRINCIPLE OF “CONTINUITY”, SO AS NOT TO WASTE THE PEOPLE’S MONEY.

 

THE PROBLEM OF THE PHILIPPINES AS A NATION ARE HER LEADERS AND THINKERS KUNO IN THE GOVERNMENT WHO REFUSE TO MAINTAIN WHAT HAVE BEEN BUILT BY PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATIONS. THEY WOULD RATHER BUILD THEIR OWN STRUCTURES ON WHICH TO IMPRESS THEIR NAMES. WORST, SOME OF THESE MORONS DESTROY WHAT HAVE BEEN BUILT DESPITE THEIR BEING USEFUL AND IN THEIR PLACE, BUILD THEIR OWN!

 

IT IS THIS ATTITUDE THAT INDICATES SELFISHNESS AND CORRUPTION THAT SINKS THE PHILIPPINES FURTHER DOWN THE PIT OF DAMNATION EVERY TIME A NEW ADMINISTRATION TAKES OVER THE REIGNS OF THE GOVERNMENT!

 

AT THIS POINT IN TIME, I AM WONDERING IF PRESIDENT DUTERTE IS BEING WISE ENOUGH IN GETTING PEOPLE TO FILL UP THE POSITIONS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION. MOST OF THEM MAY JUST CAUSE HIS DOWNFALL DUE TO THE FRIENDLY TRUST THAT HE GIVES THEM.
