Meanwhile, according to the report from ABS-CBN, the President distributed 12,585 Certificate of Land Ownership Awards to 13,585 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries. This represented the 24,000 hectares in North Cotabato, Sarangani, South Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat.
On the other hand, he belittled the land reform promise of the New People’s Army.
Duterte jokingly said to beneficiaries to sell their landa and invest the money in KAPA, based on the report.
According to Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary John Castricciones, this event is the biggest CLOA distribution in the history of land reform.
