Duterte willing to swap burial plot for P1M donation to PGH

The President just gave an option to those who are willing to depart with their 1 million pesos.
In a speech before the oathtaking of some 193 new government officials at Rizal Hall, Malacañan Palace President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said he is willing to forego his presidential burial lot at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) in exchange for P1 million donation to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH).

“Iyong libing ko diyan sa may — p***** i** may libing na ako na naka prepara sa akin diyan sa …. There’s a lot there reserved for presidents. If you want, you can buy it from me. Magbigay ka lang ng mga almost… Give one million to PGH and I’ll — I’ll execute a waiver. I’ll give it to you,” Duterte said.

“Tutal ako, just burn me when the time comes. Twenty-four hours, no vigil. And then itapon mo lang ‘yung — and leave a part beside my mother’s urn. ‘Yan lang ang ano ko. Hindi ako nag-a-ano. I do not — I’m not into this publicity. Nahihiya ako eh,” he added.
Also during the speech, the President made use of the occasion to drum up support for the improvement of the poor state of the healthcare infrastructure and services of the country.
“Try to visit. Hamon ko lang ito sa inyo, hamon ko lang. Try to visit ‘yung mga ospital lalo na kung may contagion,” the President said.

“Nasa sahig ‘yan sila lahat. Even sa emergency room dito, mag-ano kayo ng gabi. ‘Yung ibang pasyente maghintay. They are lying there in the throes of death on the floor. Tingnan ninyong mabuti. ‘Yun ang sabi ko na unahin natin pag-ano,” he added.
Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) is the heroes Cemetery located in Fort Bonifacio, in Taguig city. Established in 1947 as a fitting resting place for Filipino military personnel from privates to generals who served during World War II, it eventually became designated as the official place of burial for deceased Philippine presidents, national heroes, patriots, national artists and national scientists.
Filipino soldiers who died during the liberation of the Philippines in the last World War from 1941 to 1945, occupies a significant portion of the LNMB.
Presidents Elpidio Quirino, Carlos P. Garcia and Diosdado Macapagal; former Vice President Salvador H. Laurel; generals Artemio Ricarte and Carlos P. Romulo; Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Angelo Reyes; and former Senate President and proclaimed Vice President Arturo Tolentino and Blas Ople, are the Filipino leaders and dignitaries buried there.

Former President Ferdinand Marcos is the last president that was buried in LNMB, following the Supreme Court decision dismissing the petitions of his burial in the LNMB on 8 November 2016.
