In his new song “2022,” folk singer Freddie Aguilar urged the Filipino people to consider the intelligence of candidates when voting in upcoming presidential elections.

Aguilar, an ally of President Rodrigo Duterte who ran in the 2016 senatorial race but lost, said the next President will face countless challenges upon taking office what with the pandemic-induced economic crisis, the West Philippine Sea disputes, and natural disasters affecting the country.

“Bagsak ang ekonomiya ng bayan kong sinta. Milyon ang walang trabaho dahil sa COVID na ito, dagdag mo pa ang West Philippine Sea, mga bagyong matitindi. Kawawa ang bayan, kawawa si Juan,” the 67-year-old musician sang.

“Mabigat ang problema ng susunod na Pangulo, kaya ang piliin niyo dapat ay may talino, may kakayahan siyang mamuno, busilak ang kanyang puso para sa inang bayan,” he furthered.

Aguilar likewise dropped hints about his choice for the country’s highest office.

“Ang Presidente ko’y may utak, may panindigan. Siya ay tunay na leader, may bayag at matapang. May prinsipyo. May puso at damdamin sa tao,” he said.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Senators Manny Pacquiao, Panfilo Lacson, and Grace Poe, Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Panfilo Lacson, Taguig City-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, and former Senator Ferdinand Marcos are potential presidential bets in the 2022 polls.

For buses’ benefit: 300K liters of fuel smuggled weekly from Bataan to NCR

By Nancy Carvajal

At least 300,000 liters of fuel is smuggled weekly from a shipyard in Mariveles, Bataan to garages of various bus companies in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, persons involved in transporting the product told the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

NBI Special Unit Action agent Melvin Escurel said individuals they have talked to claimed to be clueless about the smuggling of fuel.

“A witness said they just received instructions from ‘Jerome’ and ‘Eric’ to proceed to the Seafront Shipyard and wait for the barge that would fill up their tanker,’’ Escurel said.

Using a long hose, diesel is loaded into the tankers inside the shipyard from a barge anchored about 500 meters away from the dock.

The tankers are filled with fuel at least three times a week. They travel to the shipyard from a garage in Pasay City.

Escurel said four to five tankers deliver the fuel to the garages of various bus lines. One tanker, meanwhile, heads to Fairview, Quezon City to fill up a supposedly abandoned tanker.

Based on witnesses’ testimonies, Escurel said the fuel smuggling scheme involving the Bataan shipyard appears to be well organized.
