FOR vice presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, senatorial candidate Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro is “the one that got away” or TOTGA in the 2010 elections.

In her daily talk show Sara All For You, Mayor Sara invited Teodoro as her guest.

Teodoro joined the presidential elections in 2010 but lost to late President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino.

“Siya po ang ating TOTGA noong 2010, or The One That Got away in 2010. This time around he will not be “The One That Got Away” dahil sa tulong nating lahat, magiging senator sya,” said the mayor, who hosts her own show .

Thanking the mayor, Teodoro said he was hoping that in this year’s elections, he will be “the one that was captured na sana or the one that can help.”

Asked about the need to establish separate disaster and Climate Change offices rather than these being under the Department of National Defense, Teodoro, a former defence secretary, stressed the importance of geohazards and proper infrastructure design according to an area’s geographical conditions.

He cited Siargao in Surigao del Norte, which was hit by Typhoon Odette last month, as an example.

“Alam natin ang nangyari sa Siargao. Ngayon, sa mga local government planning offices, kailangan na ang ang tamang disenyo sa tamang lugar,” Teodoro said.

He explained that there are different geographic conditions in the Philippines, which is why it is important for local government units to design their areas according to their geographical conditions.
