(Eagle News) — President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday, Jan. 10, urged his Cabinet members to pursue projects that can be finished within his term.
The President is in his fourth year in office. He will step down in 2022.
“Sabi ko sa lahat ng secretary ng mga departamento, ‘Do not go into projects which you cannot finish within the two-year time left for me in office,'” the President said in Cotabato.
