A man wrote an open letter to the netizen, convincing them to pray for President Rodrigo Duterte amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
On a Facebook post, George Montiadora said that President Duterte was experiencing more stress than anyone because of the current problems facing by the country.
He pointed out that some people are trying to criticize the President for his small mistakes instead of highlighting the good things he did.
Montiodora believes that Duterte is not going to do something bad to the country because he’s old already.
“Please include our President in your prayers for our country guys. He is more stressed than anyone of us. Imagine kung paano siya sinisisi ng marami either di maganda o mabuti ung nangyayari. Sa isang puting pader na natuldukan ng itim na tinta, karamihan sa mga Pilipino doon na nakatingin,” Montiadora said.
“Guys, this man will never ever do anything na makakasama sa kahit na sino sa atin. Matanda na siya, mahina, pagod, may mga nararamdaman,” he added.
The netizen also told the social media users that they should admit that they’re feel safer in the current administration because of the policies implemented by Duterte.
“Kaliwa’t kanang pangbabatikos, pero aminin nyo, malaking relief sa atin nung siya ang naging presidente. Di ka matatakot maglakad sa kalye sa gabi kasi alam mo na may “Yari ako kay Tatay Digong” na nakatatak kahit papaano sa utak ng mga masasamang loob sa paligid,” he said.
“He chose to fight and serve for his beloved fellowmen. He never complained. He never turned his back even to those people na supposed to be partner nya sana pero walang ginawa. Yun na mismo ung punch line “WALANG GINAWA”. (di ko sinasabing vice president to ah).” he added.
Before he ended his post, Montiodora asked the netizens to cooperate with the President instead of complaining.
“You will see him get tired but you will never see him giving up. His intentions are beyond best. Inaayos nya yung bansang buong buhay nyang nakitang walang pagbabago. Sana makipag cooperate tayo. Kung di nyo kayang tumulong, wag na kayong magreklamo!!! Laban nating lahat to. Kapit-bisig tayo Salamat Tay, kasama mo kami dito,” he said.
The post already reached 86,000 shares on social media and 107,000 reactions.
Montiadora made the said post amid the criticisms being received by Duterte to some netizens who complained about how the President delivered his televised address.
Yesterday, Duterte announced that they’re going to put Metro Manila in a community quarantine to prevent the virus from spreading.
“‘Pag hindi kayo nag-cooperate, ah the problem would start and it would start with you and end with you pagka ganun. So ‘yung mga sinasabi na social distancing, sundin lang po ninyo. At ‘yung mga ibinibigay na well ahead ng Department of Health, sundin ho ninyo kung anong sinasabi ng mga doktor kasi sila po ang marunong niyan,” President Duterte said.
