“March, lipat na kayo dito, at magbalik ako. Kung hindi matapos March, maggawa kayo ng limang krus, iyong parang kay Kristo. Ipakarga ko sa kanila at ikot-ikot dito. Pako ko lang,” he said, referring to the officials on stage including Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr. and Tacloban Mayor Christina Romualdez.
“July is too far away,” he added..
According to the City Government of Tacloban, The New Hope Village has 1,000 units. A total of 900 beneficiaries have already turned over but only 500 have been occupied.
Last November, Duterte got angry when he visited the area because of the slow rehabilitation.
“Galit ako kasi three years after, iyan lang ang natrabaho ng gobyerno. And the first time I came here, I was not really very pleased and as a matter of fact, talagang pinapakita ko lang na kunwari, talagang asar ako, at hanggang ngayon kasali na kami, huwag na natin — do not excuse anyone,” he said.
“Sabi ko noon, 28 lang ang nakalipat. Kung 28 lang ang nakalipat ‘noong nandito ako November, sabi ko, ‘P— ina, itong project ninyo, sunugin na lang ninyo.’ Sabi ko, ‘I will back December.’ But I was not able to make it because I was very busy. But finally I decided to just check on the — how they fare with their jobs,” he added.
