“While the Duterte administration continues to fulfill its duty, others are wasting precious time and resources just to discredit the country’s Covid-19 response efforts and push for their own ambitions,” Senator Bong Go dished out this verbal missile as he warned against fake news and disinformation peddled by some politicians.
Without naming names, Go said these politicians are “wishing to take advantage of our vulnerabilities and divide us just to push their twisted narratives, political agendas and vested interests.”
“The Filipino people are sick and tired of it,” Go said in his weekly column “GOing Forward,”on Sunday.
“While the Duterte administration continues to fulfill its duty, others are wasting precious time and resources just to discredit the country’s Covid-19 response efforts and push for their own ambitions,” he said.
Go vented his emotion at the unnamed politicians as the Senate investigates alleged anomalies in the government’s handling of the mutli-billion peso Covid-19 pandemic response fund.
“President Duterte and I have already said that if any allegation of corruption against us is proven, we will resign. What more do they want?” Go asked.
“I assure you that no amount of black propaganda will derail us from our mission to serve,” he stressed.
“That is why we continue to fight the good fight, anchored on the principle of our leader, President Duterte, to always prioritize the interests of those who are hopeless, helpless and in need, in order to ensure that no Filipino is left behind,” Go said.
