Part of his Legacy : Dismantling oligarch without declaring martial law




Its an achievement that will cement his legacy.
In his speech before the soldiers in Jolo, Sulu President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said without having to declare martial law he “dismantled” the oligarch that has been controlling the country for several years.


“Kaya ako mamatay, mahulog ‘yung eroplano, p***** i** (I can die, even if the plane crashes), I am very happy. Alam mo bakit (You know why)? Sabi ko, without declaring martial law, I dismantled the oligarchy that controlled the economy of the Filipino people,” he said.

The President did not elaborate who is he referring to as the one he dismantled.
“Sabi ko sa lamesa, sabi ko ang oligarchy ng Pilipinas binuwal ko talaga. Iyan ang... Iyan ang sentimiyento ko rin para malaman mo rin (I told the table, I dismantled oligarchy in the Philippines. That’s my sentiment just to let you know),” he said.


In previous speeches last year he questioned the 1997 concessionaire contracts with the billionaires Fernando Zobel de Ayala and Manuel V. Pangilinan of Manila Water and Maynilad, respectively.

The President threatened a military take over of the two water operators, if they will pursue against the government the arbitral award handed down by the arbitral court in Singapore amounting to billions of pesos.
The President was also able to make Lucio Tan to pay in 2017 the P6 billion liabilities his Philippine Airlines (PAL) owed to the governmentto which the latter paid in full.
The President in the same speech said he does not mind if he would be replaced as President.
“Kaya ako kung mag-decide kayo na tanggalin ako, mas mabuti. P***** i**. Kasi ayaw kong maghawak ng gobyerno na wala akong magawa. May mga batas kasi (If you decide to remove me, that’s better. Because I don’t want to run a government I can’t do anything about. There’s a law),” he said.
