Leni Robredo To President Rodrigo Duterte: I Am Ready To Become A President
Some Filipinos do not believe what Vice President Leni Robredo said that she does not wish anything ill of the President, but she was asked by GMA TV host Mike Enriquez if she is prepared to take over the President just in case something happens to him. Robredo said, "I am ready to be president."
A few months ago, there were a lot of speculations that Robredo and her cohorts had plans to replace President Duterte. Whether these speculations are true or not, the president is risking his life for the good of Filipinos and country. Without having fear, the president continues to fight against illegal drugs, corruption and criminality in the country.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said,"despite his advanced age, the president has the ability to work hard for the Filipino people and for the beloved country. I hope and pray the president would remain healthy and finish his term."
Despite the fact Robredo said this statement, “ako naman po, I do not want to wish anything ill sa ating pangulo. Pero sa akin kasi, mas mabuti sana na nothing happens. Iyon na iyong ideal world. Nothing happens to the President, the President and the Vice President work well together. For the benefit of the nation,” many are still not convinced that she is hoping for the best to our beloved president.
Lots of netizens have said that Robredo really wants to become a President. That is one of the reasons why they had been rumored to have a Plan A, B, C, D to oust Duterte. And if anything happens to the president, Robredo as a Vice President, is prepared to lead the country accordingly to her recent statement and mandate.
In an interview Robredo said, "pero sa akin naman it’s part of the mandate. When I ran, nandoon na po iyong obligation ko, na if anything happens, I should be prepared to lead. Hindi ko nakakalimutan iyong mandato ko. Iyong mandato ko is that I should always be prepared.”
After this statement, Filipinos commented on social media saying "protect the president." They have been praying that the impeachment filed by Magdalena Representative Gary Alejandro against the president would not materialize, and I think it would only be put to trash since all these past days , the opposition has become desperate to oust the president because of their alleged previous corruption under Aquino administration.
