Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos said the country must not dwell on problems about his family that he claimed were already resolved many years ago but instead government should focus on what would make people’s lives better. “In 1986 or about 30 years ago, these were resolved. Those who were criticizing got their wish, it is finished. Let us move on,” he said.
The son of the late strongman President Ferdinand Marcos said that they have addressed whatever cases were hurled in court and answered in every forum the best way they can accusations against his family.
Bongbong was reacting on how he would answer accusations against his family should he run as vice-president. “Let us talk on our present problems and the needed solutions instead of repeatedly mentioning accusations against my family by certain elements of the press.” he said.
He cited the problems on traffic, water, electric power, foreign investment and hunger that stalk 12 million people that should be given primary concern.
“These are problems we should be talking about, not problems resolved two generations ago,” Marcos said. “Let us go back to what people voted us into – to solve problems they encounter everyday to make their lives better. This is where the focus of government should be and that I will continue to focus on,” he said.
