“Gusto ko lang maintindihan ninyo na ang gusto ni Pres. Duterte, kung ang gobyerno makahatag, ihatag dayun sa inyu, waay na pabudlay-budlay. Basta kinanlan niyo at kung may-ara, ara dayun”, he said.


Further, Sec. Piñol shared the perspectives of President Duterte’s Government on the said program.


Farmers and fisherfolks of Guimaras received equipment support such as hand tractor, water pump and engine set and knapsack sprayers, weighing scales and other tools for farmers and fisherfolks.


The said event aims to address issues and concerns of the farmers and fisherfolks of Guimaras through “Tapatan: Gobyerno at Mamamayan”, as part of the Secretary's itinerary in different provinces which seeks to bring the services of the government reachable and accessible to the people.


Also, certificates of turn-over for different facilities and equipment were given.
