Yabang! Dan Fernandez boasts he can do a better job than Duterte in Davao City
Laguna Rep. Dan Fernandez believes Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is no different than other local chief executives despite media hype about his much-touted leadership skills.
Fernandez, who’s running for mayor of Sta. Rosa, Laguna in the May 2016 elections, boasted in a press conference about his belief that he can do an even better job than Duterte in Davao City if he were to be given a decade to rule the area.
“Bigyan mo ako ng kalahati lang ng term niya— sampung taon— dodoblihin ko ang nangyari sa Davao City,” he said.
Duterte led Davao City in various capacities— as a congressman, vice mayor and mayor— for nearly two decades.
Despite the accolades received by Davao City under Duterte’s watch, Fernandez believes the mayor has a limited role in the area’s growth.
“The reason why Davao City is [what it is] right now, kasi binigyan natin siya ng mahabang panahon para maglingkod sa Davao City,” he said.
