Corruption and the governance over which Mr. Aquino has so far presided apparently ride in tandem.
It seems most everyone has learned the right lesson from Supertyphoon “Yolanda.” Both the national government and those local governments in the path of Typhoon “Ruby” went to great lengths to prepare for the inevitable; as many as three-quarters of a million residents in at-risk areas willingly complied with evacuation orders. “People did not need much convincing to move to safety,” Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman told the Associated Press. “In fact many of them volunteered to go.”
The Inquirer’s Dec. 1 editorial pointed out President Aquino’s or his representative’s supposed failure to meet the Kilus Magniniyog farmers before they reached Manila, their destination. We quote: “But at the same time we cannot understand why, if the administration was, as the President told the farmers, ‘on your side,’ it had to wait for the marchers to finish their 1,700-km ordeal. The President or his representative could have met them somewhere along their route, perhaps even before they left Mindanao.”
