Duterte wants Peñaflorida for PCUP

Posted on

Duterte’s decision to appoint Peñaflorida came after he ordered the firing of all commissioners of the urban poor commission over junkets and their supposed failure to hold meetings.

Aside from Peñaflorida, Duterte is also considering Davao’s very own hero, Randy Halasan.

Halasan, 35, is  a public school  teacher who won the Ramon Magsaysay Award for nurturing his Matigsalug students and their community to transform their lives through quality education and sustainable livelihoods.

Duterte said dismissed PCUP chairman Terry Ridon traveled seven time since his appointment in September 2016.

Under Executive Order 82, the PCUP serves as the direct link of the urban poor to the government in policy formulation and program implementation addressed to their needs. Peñaflorida has yet to respond to Duterte’s invitation.-Editha Z. Caduaya with reports from PNA
