Mailalaban pa: Mayor Bing Leonardia says Negros Region won’t die just yet
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!
