President Rodrigo Duterte and his group went to Itogon, Benguet to meet the groups of the avalanche casualties last Monday. In Spite of the hazard in removing the mountains of Benguet because of the haze covering the region to be landed, Duterte still needs to continue in the area dismissing the hazard he may experience right then and there. In a Facebook post by Department of Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol, he shared how the president support his job to give sympathy to the general population who required him most aside for the budgetary help they will get from government offices. Piñol described how dangerous the helicopter of the President to arrive in the Loakan Airport in Baguio City, and pilot need to return to La Union since an awesome number of hazes is covering the airplane terminal. Duterte need to continue via arrive travel to Benguet Provincial Capitol in La Trinidad, to mourn with the avalanche casualties. Piñol recalled in this situation, when Duterte was still Mayor of Davao City that he need to stop amidst a stormy night when he saw a mother and a kid stranded in the road. He requested that his driver stop and get the mother and youngster and bring them home. And keeping in mind that the driver is with the mother and youngster, Duterte sat tight for the vehicle to return while conversing with the general population in the roadside. Piñol explains that Duterte is a pioneer in the midst of emergency. That is the sort of authority we require in our nation. A pioneer with #TapangAtMalasakit! what's more, #LiderNaNagmamahal! finished by Pinol in his Facebook post. Read full post below: "A caring President! PRESIDENT DUTERTE TOOK RISKS TO MEET LANDSLIDE VICTIMS KIN By Manny Piñol La Trinidad, Benguet - This is a story the mainstream media may have missed which I have to share with the Filipino people. President Rody Duterte, in his desire to meet the families of the landslide victims in Itogon, Benguet, took risks which may have scared the wits of the Presidential Security Group. The Presidential helicopters which President Duterte used from La Union to the Loakan Airport in Baguio City had to turn back after the pilots determined that it was very risky to penetrate the fogs covering the city at about 5 p.m. President Duterte told me during the post-disaster assessment briefing that he asked the Presidential pilots to fly through the fogs. After several unsuccessful attempts to find an opening, the pilots had to advice the PSG that it was too risky and returned to San Fernando. Determined to proceed to the Benguet Provincial Capitol in La Trinidad, President Duterte decided to travel by land. Arriving in La Trinidad shortly before 6 p.m., the President met with the families of the Itogon landslide victims at the lobby of the Capitol to offer his condolences and sympathies. He then presided over the post-disaster assessment which lasted up to 8:30 p.m. and motored back to San Fernando, La Union where the Presidential helicopters were. From there, he took a one-hour night flight by helicopter back to Malacañang. In my view, the President took an unnecessary risk because he could have postponed the trip for the next day. But this is a President like no other and I have no intention of belittling the dedication to duty of other leaders before him. I remember that incident in Davao City when he was Mayor when he got off his pick up and ordered his driver to help a mother and child stranded during a rainy night. The driver brought the woman and his child home while Mayor Duterte spent time talking to people by the roadside while waiting for his vehicle to return. That's his style. That's his brand of leadership. He is a leader who would like to be with his people in times of crisis. That is Rody Duterte. #TapangAtMalasakit! #LiderNaNagmamahal!
