Duterte’s marching order to new gov’t officials: Serve with integrity, dedication
President Rodrigo Duterte urged newly appointed government officials Monday (Jan. 9) to serve the people with integrity and dedication as they took their oaths before him in Malacañang.
In his speech, Duterte expressed his wish that he and other government officials can work together for the people’s benefit.
“Six years from now, I do not think that you’d be in a position to work some more. So this is the last call para may magawa tayo sa kababayan natin. Just give it to them,” he said.
“It’s your last call to serve your nation and because I am pleading to you and I hope that we can work together, trust each other and I said give it to the people this time,” Duterte added.
The President reiterated his vow there will be no corruption in the government. He also promised to fight red tape in the bureaucracy.
