Man removes anti-Duterte tarp at UP Town Center overpass

A concerned citizen removed a tarpaulin against President Rodrigo Duterte installed at Katipunan overpass, saying that calls for the removal of the chief executive would not solve the current problems of the country.

In a Facebook post, netizen Gab Sab narrated that he was driving along Katipunan Avenue when he saw the tarp saying “Oust Duterte” at the overpass.

He decided to stop his car to remove the said tarpaulin and dumped it to the nearest garbage bin because he believes that calling for the ouster of the President was non-sense.

“Tinanggal ko at tinapon ko sa basurahan yung walang kakwenta kwentang bagay at walang magandang hatid sa lahat ng makakakita. Di ko lang maintindihan kung san nanggagaling yung nagsulat at naglagay nun at nageffort pa na lumabas at suwayin ang utos ng gobyerno para lang gawin yun,” Sab said.

“Di ba nya naisip na di solusyon ang pagpapatalsik sa Presidente natin sa kinakaharap natin na problema ngayon? Kasi ang pagkakaalam ko PAGKAKAISA yung kailangan natin ngayon at TULUNGAN at hindi pagsisisihan o siraan!” he added.

According to him, the critics of the President should stop their campaign for now as the country was facing a crisis due to COVID-19.

“Puro reklamo at puro paninisi nalang sa Gobyerno imbis gumawa ng tama! Kung may pagkukulang man sila naniniwala ako na di ito yung tamang panahon para isumbat yun sa kanila. Dahil walang nakakaalam at nakapaghanda sa problemang to kahit yung malalakaing bansa,” he said.

“Kung di natin kayang irespeto si DU30 bilang Presidente, Irespeto nalang sana natin sya bilang nakakatanda na kailangan igalang gaya ng mga nakakatanda nating kamaganak!” he added.

The video already reached 151,000 views as of writing and 24,000 reactions on social media.

Two weeks ago, several critics of the government called for the ouster of President Rodrigo Duterte because of their dissatisfaction in the performance of the chief executive on fighting COVID-19.
