BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

President Rodrigo Duterte was in Bacolod City yesterday to campaign for the senatorial candidates of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), who, he said, are the people who can help the country, as well as for Mayor Evelio Leonardia, during the campaign rally of the administration bets yesterday at the football field of the Bacolod City Government Center.

“Wala nang ibang mahusay na mayor kundi ikaw (There is no other better mayor than you)”, Duterte told Leonardia during his almost 2-hour speech.

But he reminded the mayor to take a stronger stand and to protect the civilians against illegal drugs. He also asked the people to help the government in the fight against the illegal substance. moremoremore
