President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to implement agrarian reform in Masbate in his last three years in office.

Duterte on Wednesday (January 9) said he will make agrarian reform a priority.

“I-land reform ko ang Masbate. Maniwala kayo. [applause] Itaga ninyo sa bato ‘yan. With or without the communists, we can. Meron pa akong three years. Uubusin ko itong Pilipinas,” he said in a speech at the “Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay” launch in the province.

Duterte said he finds Masbate “quite peculiar” because it is a melting pot of different cultures.

“Kasi dito parang halo may — ang punto may Masbateño. It’s a almost — may Bisaya, Tagalog and ang punto parang Waray. Ang mukha parang taga mga Maynila, gwapo, gwapa,” he said.
