Duterte, who is on a Mahalin Natin ang Pilipinas Ride (MNPR) this month, said she wants to provide employment for Filipinos who lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The first thing we will do is to give back the jobs lost because of the pandemic,” she said in Filipino in a media briefing.

Duterte believes that quality education is the backbone of good employment, thus her goal of enhancing it, including skills training to boost competencies.

“Education doesn’t only mean a college degree. It should include skills training because you can be employed even without a degree,” she said in Filipino.

Duterte initiated job generation programs and other support for pandemic-affected individuals and families in Davao City.

Her initiatives included mobilizing the transport sector in Covid-19 response, introducing livelihood trainings for women and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community, and the distribution of gadgets for siblings who are studying.

Duterte said her plans are aimed at achieving a common goal: peaceful living for every Filipino.

“Third is everybody’s dream. A peaceful life,” she said in Filipino.

Next week, Duterte and her MNPR team will start their return to Davao City using the west-side route.

Before arriving in Nueva Vizcaya, Duterte attended the inauguration of the Marcos-Sara Duterte Alliance (Masada) and the Kay Inday Sara Lilipad ang Pilipinas (Kislap) headquarters in Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija.

The Masada regional headquarters inauguration was led by Governor Oyie Umali, while the Kislap event was organized by lawyer Kathryn Joson.

Among the supporters who waited for Duterte was Divina Magtalas, 53, a resident of Barangay Bantug Norte in Cabanatuan.

She hopes Duterte’s development plans would come true.
