Vice Pres. Leni Robredo Talks To Ati Tribe of Boracay Island
LENI ROBREDO – The Vice President and presidential candidate vowed that she will take care of the smallest and farthest communities if she wins president in the May 2022 Election.
The presidential candidates in the May 2022 Election have started visiting different cities and provinces in the Philippines to campaign. It was last February 8 when the campaign period officially started. The prexy bets held their proclamation rallies in different areas.
Presidential candidate and Vice Pres. Leni Robredo held her proclamation rally in Naga, Camarines Sur. After the campaign period already started, she and her team began visiting not only cities but as well as far-flung areas. She recently met with the Ati tribe in Boracay Island.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Vice President talked to the 200-strong tribe which was among the last tribe visited by her late husband, former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Jesse Robredo, before he died in 2012. The former Interior Secretary died in a plane crash and his death has led his wife to a different side of public service – in politics. Prior to it, she’s already reaching out to marginalized people.
According to the report, Vice Pres. Leni Robredo assured the Ati that if she wins president in the Election 2022, she will make sure that the government is taking good care of even the smallest and the farthest communities. She stressed that it is really her dream for the IP communities to feel the security that they will not be driven out of their places anytime.
“Masiguro na nakakatulog kayo gabi-gabi na panatag ‘yung kalooban na hindi kayo papaalisin, na araw-araw tahimik ‘yung inyong pakiramdam,” she said.
The Vice President who is running as an independent candidate for president in the upcoming election expressed that taking care of the culture of the tribe is part of being a Filipino and it is more important than any business.
