Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte slammed the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) after she was accused by the said party of not giving allowances to public school teachers.
In a social media post of Radyo Ni Juan, it ACT was quoted saying: “Cebu City gives its public school teachers P10,000 a year; Cagayan de Oro City, P7,650; Koronadal City, P3,000; General Santos City, P2,000; Island Garden City of Samal, P1,500; Davao City, zero.”

The allegation has been quickly debunked by the daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte and called the ACT members as terr*rists.
“So, ACT Teachers Davao, hindi lang kayo terr*rista at sympathizer ng mga terr*rista, you are also LIARS. In December 2016 and 2017, the City Government of Davao gave gift cheques worth Php 2,000/person/year to all teaching and non-teaching employees of DepEd.” Inday Sara said in her Instagram post.
“We have copies of the budget, pictures of distribution and the liquidation with all signatures. Pahirapan pa nga magpa approve ng grant ninyo at kami pa ang nasa alanganin and you have the temerity to lie,” she added.
Inday Sara even said that she would expel ACT outside Davao if it’s only allowed.
“Kung puwede lang sana kayo iexpel outside of Davao City. I waited for your paper and yet you always keep missing opportunities for unity, because you are never sincere.” she said.
The Davao City Mayor, who’s known for being a fierce critic of the New People’s Army suggested that Department of Education (DepEd) should distance from the alleged terr*rists.

She was also wondering why the government is paying the people who are against the reforms of the President.
“DepEd should dismiss terr*rists from their ranks, how ironic for the government to pay public money to people who work against the government.” Duterte said.
Inday Sara also suggested that the Congress should expel the Makabayan bloc members and the party list system because it’s allegedly only used to fund the armed struggle of NPA.
Even Radyo Ni Juan was not safe from the tirades of the Davao City Mayor, saying that National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) should not give a permit to anti-government radio stations.
“Congress should expel the members of Makabayan bloc, the Partylist system is the milking cow of terr*rists. And why would NTC give a permit to an anti-government station Radyo ni Juan? Why is our government supporting the same people who want to overthrow it?”
