DU30 SONA 2016

For someone like me who has seen and heard State of the Nation Address of several Presidents before President Rodrigo Roa Duterte - DU30, this is the first one that did not refer to statistics.  The SONA 2016 of DU30 trully stated the what the nation, the Philippines, is really in.  He emphasized on what needs to be done and how it should be done. The main problems of the country on illegal drugs, criminality and corruption was clearly stated on why the country could not move on.

DU30 did not point a finger or put blame of past administrations.  He simply stated that the issues were not properly addressed making the country suffer more.  The most important part of his SONA was being able to see what exactly was happening with people applying for passports and the anguishing fishermen at Laguna de Bay.  That simply shows that he knows and recognizes the plight of the ordinary Filipino.  

The point of his SONA is what the Philippines is, how it is now and what needs to be done to move on.  He was clear on issues regarding appointment to the cabinet.  What is important to him is that the line of thinking of people working with him is the same as his.  It was a wonder why Peter Cayetano was not there.  Lilia de Lima was good not to be there.
