Duterte vows to implement agrarian reform in Masbate: We can do it with or without NPA
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.
