While speaking in front of the graduates of the Ateneo de Manila University, Pnoy warned of a looming strongman rule under the Duterte administration.
It can be recalled that President Aquino campaigned hard against Duterte, even drawing comparisons between Duterte’s rise to that of Hitler.
On the final day of the election campaign, President Aquino warned the voters against voting for a candidate like Duterte that reads:
I hope we learn the lessons of history. We should remember how Hitler came to power.
However, the Filipino voters did not take heed of the Pnoy’s repeated warnings as they went on to give the Davao City Mayor a landslide win, even topping Erap’s and Pnoy’s win in recent election history.
President Aquino’s speech during the graduation at the Ateneo de Manila University did not go unnoticed.
PNoy warns Filipinos of the looming dictatorship of the incoming administration saying that the Philippines does not deserve another strongman to lead the country.
Remember he is an oligarch. He and his kin ran this country like it’s theirs at the expense of the marginalized and the poor. They ran it like dictators in the shadows of democracy.
Will the next 6 years be a dictatorship? Yes.
A dictatorship by the people, the ordinary Filipinos. The oppressed. We will seize this country back from the oligarchs, the powerful few. It is time. It is our time.
