0 72

This politiko hasn’t given up just yet.

President Rodrigo Duterte has decided to abolish the Negros Island Region two years after his predecessor, ex-Pres. Noynoy Aquino, mandated its creation.

Although saddened, Bacolod City Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia isn’t that heartbroken as he still believes that there’s a second chance.

“Well, first of all, we have to respect the decision of the President. But I hope we can still appeal this. With solid and valid justifications, maybe this NIR proposition can still be given a second look by the executive branch,” the politiko said on Facebook.


Leonardia has appealed on Negrenses in Congress to file a bill to make the creation of the region permanent, even in the face of Duterte’s opposition.

Who will reign? Abangan!
