Duterte tells troops in Bulacan: ‘Hilingin na ninyo lahat’
President Rodrigo R. Duterte on Wednesday pledged to buy new helicopters in the next 2 to 3 years to serve more air transport for military troops.
“Maganda na ang ospital ninyo, binili ko na lahat ng gamit. Hilingin na ninyo lahat hanggat ako ang nandito,” the President told First Scout Ranger Regiment troops during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Scout Ranger Ville in Barangays Calumpang, Tartaro, and Sibul in San Miguel, Bulacan.
The Scout Ranger Ville is a project of the National Housing Authority (NHA) under the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) Housing Program. A total of 1000 duplex-type housing units will be built under the project.
The 50-hectare project will have an initial 1,000 housing units under the New Housing Design (Biyaya ng Pagbabago) intended for members of the First Scout Regiment based in Camp Tecson.
Duterte also led the lowering of time capsule for the Scout Ranger Ville project.
Also present were Secretary of National Defense Delfin Lorenzana, Armed Forces of the Philippines Gen. Eduardo Año, HUDCC chair Eduardo del Rosario, NOLCOM Commander Emmanuel Salamat, Rep. Alfredo Benitez, Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy Alvarado, Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando, Mayor Marivee Mendez-Coronel, and NHA General Manager Marcelino Escalada Jr.
During the ceremony, Duterte said that terrorism inspired by ISIS may not end in the next 7 to 10 years, but in the end, he said, the government’s fight against terrorism will prevail.
