Caravan on Sept. 24 to demand Sen. de Lima’s resignation

CEBU CITY — President Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters in Cebu province will hold a caravan on Saturday to call for the resignation of Senator Leila de lima.

In a press conference, lawyer Noel Felongco, PDP-Laban Central Visayas chapter president, said the caravan, to be held simultaneously in different parts of the country, will be attended by various groups supporting the President.

The caravan, which will start at 7 a.m., will go around Metro Cebu and will converge at the Cebu Business Park where a rally will be held.

Felongco said the caravan not only intends to call for de Lima’s resignation but also to urge her political party, the Liberal Party, to abandon its alleged plan to destabilize the Duterte administration.

“For the sake of the country, for peace and development, stop them,” said Felongco.

Dr. Rowena Burden of the Cebu for Duterte Group said they will also welcome supporters of other presidential candidates during the last election who may have decided to support the Duterte administration.

Aside from the activities in Metro Cebu, Duterte supporters from the towns of Madridejos in Bantayan Island, Dalaguete and Camotes Island, and in Danao City will also hold their own activities.

As this developed, Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III said President Duterte had sought the help of local chief executives during a meeting last Sept. 21 in Davao City.

Duterte invited local chief executives, including Davide, as part of the President’s Sulong Filipinas’ call in the country’s fight against corruption and illegal drugs.

During the meeting, Davide said the President also reiterated his support for the police force. PNA/
