Duterte challenges PNPA graduates: Be the greatest version of yourselves!
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday urged graduates of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) to push themselves to be the greatest that they can be.
Dutete made the remark during the PNPA’s 40th commencement exercises for the ‘Sansiklab’ Class of 2019 at Camp General Mariano N. Castañeda in Silang, Cavite.
Sansiklab stands for “Sandigan ng Mamamayan na may Sigasig na Itaguyod ang Kapayapaan at Ipaglaban ang Bayan.”
“Your goal must now be to serve and protect our people and country to the best of your ability. I therefore challenge your class, the “Sansiklab” Class of 2019 to be the greatest version of yourselves,” the President said in his speech.
Duterte also advised the PNPA graduates not to let power and fame go to their head.
“Excel in your chosen pursuits, lend your abilities to all our communities, and stand by your principles at all costs. Never be deceived by power nor by fame. What is important is that you honor, for it is your badge towards genuine success,” he added.
