PRESIDENT Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr.’s assumption of the highest political post of the land seven months ago was the cue for the Filipino people to set aside their political and other differences.

It will be recalled that in his well-applauded inaugural address, the highly-articulate Chief Executive from Ilocos Norte vowed to lead this Southeast Asian country to greater heights.

And today, more and more Filipinos, including former critics, believe that some of Mr. Marcos’ visions have already taken shape, drawing cheers and praises from various quarters.

In fact, the government, through concerned offices and agencies, now implements programs and initiates activities aimed at addressing the country’s problems.

Aware of the many problems and challenges of the country’s beleaguered farmers and fishermen, President Marcos continues to head the Department of Agriculture.

Of course, we are made to believe that “mananatili si Pangulong Marcos sa DA hangga’t nandiyan pa ang mga mabibigat na problema na nagpapahirap sa mga magsasaka.”

“Tama lang ‘yang ginagawa ni Apo Bongbong dahil talagang hirap na hirap na ang mga taong umaasa lang sa pagtatrabaho sa bukid,” according to a rice farmer.

And one of the priorities of the Marcos administration is bringing down the prices of oil and other essential commodities, like food, not only in the metropolis but elsewhere.

In the uphill fight against the dreaded “drug monster,” law enforcement authorities, particularly the police, now go after the country’s big-time drug personalities.

Dapat lang!
