Archbishop Socrates Villegas
Hope you are in good health and everything is fantastic.
This letter is my simple way to tell you Honorable Bishop Villegas that from the bottom of my heart, I oppose your call to President Duterte to resign. I believe that the answer to our problems is Unity not Resignation. Our Philippine Constitution does not envisage President’s resignation as a solution to any problem. In Duterte’s administration, the human rights are protected in the Philippines, that even the highest man in the land can be called upon for his actions and that every citizen accused of a crime has the right to the due process of law.
If there is chaos in the Philippines, it is because politicians are fighting for powers and are using the innocent masses to acquire it. The one who are paying the price for this are the poor people and the country.
I know – you knew it Honorable Villegas, that before President Duterte take off to Malacanang, you saw it that the Philippines was a tormented nation because of corruptions, crimes and illegal drugs industry in the country that the former administration of Pnoy has failed to fix them. You knew it also Honorable Bishop, that the presence of this drug in the country has killed people, relationships and dreams.
Now, in order to avoid more disorder and chaos in the country, we Filipinos should let the law takes it course and remain united. That is the only way to save the Philippines and we all should help our legally elected president to run the country. In addition, President Duterte’s 100 days as the president of the Philippines, shows great achievement compared to the six years of Aquino administration. Now it is safer to walk down the streets.
I can still remember President Duterte’s message and call to the Filipino people during the campaign period, he said, I quote “I am here because the Filipinos are suffering in the hands of corrupt government officials and its failure to protect and provide the needs of its people. I am here to correct and establish order in my beloved country. Many will stop me, many will go against me and many even try to kill me because my principle and dignity over on how to fix this country. This will be my last candidacy due to my age. But if God bless me with your help, I might change this country that you all be proud of and my legacy will extend far beyond next Filipino generation.”
Now on behalf of the 100 million+ Filipinos – Would you care Honorable Bishop Villegas to extend your hand, love, respect, trust and support to President Duterte?
That is all for now. Thanks much for your time. Have a nice day. God bless you.
