According to them, the Chief Executive is the only president of the country who personally visited residents of the province and extended financial assistance to those in need.

They could not hide their gratitude to him. Surigao del Sur Gov. Alexander Pimentel thanked the President.

“Maraming, maraming salamat po mahal na President dahil kayo lang ang Presidente na umiikot sa buong bansa” upang tumulong sa mga Pilipino,” he said.

The governor clarified he was not comparing the President to his predecessors. He was just stating a fact that only President Marcos visits Fillipinos and help them when get affected by calamities.

Pimentel hailed President Marcos cited the Chief Executive’s exceptional effort to ensure that all forms of assistance reach every Filipino across the country.

The governor noted that the President makes the visit even when there are no disasters. The President is focused on seeing the condition of his countrymen and provide all the help the government can extend.

On the other hand, Surigao del Sur Rep. Romeo Momo is one with the 10,000 fisherfolk and farmers in Caraga thanking President Marcos for reaching out and helping them during trying times.

“Ang aming taos pusong pasasalamat po sa inyo pong pagdalaw sa aming probinsya despite of your hectic schedule,” Momo told the President.

Momo said the presidential assistance extended to El Niño-hit sectors is a big help to boost their recovery.

“Kaya ang pagbisita ng ating mahal na Pangulo dito sa atin ay hindi lamang pagbibigay ng ayuda kung hindi alamin din siguro ng ating mahal na Pangulo ang kalagayan at pangangailangan ng ating probinsya,” he added.

Surigao del Sur Rep. Johnny Pimentel (2nd district) is grateful to President Marcos who personally visited and assisted his constituents.

Pimentel echoed the observation that President Marcos is the first chief executive to personally extend assistance to needy Filipinos affected by a disaster.

“Kayo po, ito po ang kauna-unahang pagkakataon na ang isang Presidente ay bumisita” sa Lalawigan ng Surigao del Sur at namigay ng mga ayuda sa mga magsasaka at sa mga mangingisda,” Pimentel said.

He said President Marcos’ gesture only showed the Chief Executive is the kind of leader who is willing to help uplift the lives of Filipinos.

“Kayo po ang Pangulo na tinitingala ko na may malaking puso para tulungan ang mga kapwa Pilipino dito sa ating bansa. I would like to assure President Ferdinand Romualdez Marcos Jr. that all the people of Surigao del Sur [are] in full support of your programs and administration,” he said.

“Makakaasa po kayo, Mr. President kami po nasa likod niyo sa lahat ng inyong programa,” he added.
