VP Spokesperson Barry Gutierrez’ response to Sec Salvador Panelo’s continued politicking amid the Davao earthquake
That Sec Panelo still insists in talking politics amid the unfolding tragedy in Davao del Sur and surrounding provinces proves, once and for all, that he will always prioritize politicking over the welfare of our people. We reminded him yesterday that this was a time to unite and focus on helping those affected by the earthquake, but he is clearly intent on continuing to sow division even in the face of a national tragedy, as his tone-deaf statements demonstrate. He can continue to play politics if he wants while, true to her word, the VP will focus on relief efforts for our fellow Filipinos who need them most.
