Finally, someone from the government has stepped up the plate and make “patol” of the millenials who started the trend on Twitter using the #NasaanAngPangulo.
Remember the beautiful Congresswoman from Sultan Kudarat whose KDrama inspired prenuptial photos trended on social media and was featured in KMJS (Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho)?
Yes, her name is Bai Rihan Mangudadatu Sakaluran. The pretty Congresswoman is our public official who can’t stand the drama of fellow wokes on Twitter, asking for President Duterte’s whereabouts not just lately, but everytime a calamity struck in the country.
On Facebook Bai Rihan wrote:
“I saw various posts on facebook, tiktok, twitter #nasaanangpangulo and all other people complaining na nasaan ang gobyerno, bat wala ginagawa ang gobyerno, walang tulong na dumarating galing gobyerno.”
Bai Rehan urged those complaining to dedicate themselves first.
“Yun reklamo po ng reklamo please sa mga kababayan natin ieducate po natin ang ating mga sarili.”
First, she said that during a calamity, one should not ask for the President.
“Una una sa lahat pag may calamity sa lugar ninyo po HINDI PO ANG PANGULO ANG UNANG HAHANAPIN NIYO.”
Bai Rehan informed the public there is such a thing as LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNIT, which she said are the first responders.
“Kaya nga po meron tayong tintawag na LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNIT nandyan ang Barangay Kapitan, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, PNP, BFP, Municipal or City Councilors, Municipal or City Mayors sila po yun una natin tawagin hindi po ang Pangulo. Sila po yun unang una na mag aaction at nandyan para sa ating bayan.”
Second, Bai Rehan hoped that people will learn to appreciate the sacrifices of our leaders and other government agencies. She admitted the government are far from perfect but everyone is doing their best.
“Pangalawa, sana iappreciate po natin ang hirap at pagod ng ating mga leaders and other government line agencies po. Philippine Government is far from being perfect but everyone is doing their job and best.”
And lastly, Bai Rehan offers a better advice to people who always complain on social media, pray for the safety of everyone and do in their own little way to help the country.
“At panghuli, instead po mag sige complain tayo at post sa facebook, twitter at tiktok ng mga reklamo sa gobyerno, how about lets pray for the safety of everyone at gumawa tayo ng paraan na lang na makatulong sa ating mga kababayan.”
Bai Rehan remarked that if they don’t like the President, it’s fine with her. She said she respects their opinion but she made an important pleadings to critics of the President.
“Kung ayaw niyo po sa ating Pangulo thats okay po. That is your opinion and should be respected but please this is not the time to keep on politicizing, criticizing and pinpointing. Ito po un oras na dapat tayong mga Pilipino ay nagkakaisa at nagtutulungan🙏🏻”
Bai Rehan ended her FB post with an important message to Filipinos – to summon the Filipino Spirit that never waver or give up in the face of typhoon or calamities.
“God Guide and Bless everyone🙏🏻 Lets put out our Filipino Spirit🙌🏻 kahit ano pang bagyo o sakuna ang dumating tayo ay Pilipino na hindi matitinag, hindi susuko at puno pa rin ng pagmamahal at kasiyahan❤️🙏🏻🙌🏻”
Bai Rehan clarified she is writing not as a DDS but simply wanted to share her opinion and to see a united Filipinos.
“P.S. i’m not being a DDS here po. I’m just sharing my own opinion po and gusto ko lang po ay maging united po tayong lahat❤️🙏🏻 Let’s spread Love and Positivity po❤️🙏🏻”
