PRESIDENT Marcos completes the first 100 days of his presidency on October 8, with the people expecting him to implement measures designed to address our major problems.

Likewise, Marcos is seen to put in place practical programs and initiate activities and projects aimed at achieving food security and meeting the employment needs of the people.

In a survey conducted from June 16 to 22, 68 percent of respondents said they expect President Marcos to perform “well” or “very well” during his first 100 days in Malacanang.

Conducted by the PUBLICUS Asia, Inc., the survey also said the Chief Executive from Ilocos Norte should focus on three issues – economic development, job creation and education.

In the fight against COVID-19, the Department of Health (DOH) was reported to have admitted that it would not be able to meet its vaccination targets on or before October 8.

Despite the elaborately-orchestrated nationwide booster campaign, health authorities have reached only about nine percent of DOH target population for first boosters.

Under the DOH’s “PinasLakas” vaccination drive, the government hopes to inoculate 90 percent of the elderly and 50 percent of the eligible population for first booster shots by October 8.

Records show that only 2.1 million individuals received their first boosters, according to Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, officer-in-charge (OIC) of the Department of Health.

“Kasi nawala ang takot ng tao sa COVID-19 dahil nagawang ma-kontrol ng gobyerno ang pagkalat ng nakamamatay na sakit na galing ng China,” according to a barangay official.

And with his popularity still high in the winds, the only son and namesake of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos should watch out for shenanigans in national and local offices.

Habang maaga pa ay dapat paghahampasin na ni Pangulong Marcos ang mga taong naliligaw ng landas.
