THE people of Nueva Ecija once again showed their full support for the UniTeam as presidential frontrunner former Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. visited the province for the third time on Friday.

During his speech at SMDC, Barangay Sta. Arcadia, in Emilio Vergara Highway, Cabanatuan City on Friday, Marcos hailed the province for their systematic agriculture system which he said must be done all over the country.

“Kailangan nating ayusin ang ating agrikultura. Dito sa Nueva Ecija maayos ang patakbo ng agrikultura ngunit sa ibang lugar sa Pilipinas ay mayroon tayong kailangang gawin pa para pagandahin pa, upang maging sapat ang ating pagkain. Upang di tayo masyadong umaasa lang sa pag-import (kung hindi) meron tayong sapat na produksiyon para sa ating mga kababayan,” he said.

Marcos said with the help of the whole UniTeam, including their senatoriables, there is a high chance that all the plans prepared by him and his running mate Mayor Inday Sara Duterte will be a success.

“Ang dami nating hinaharap na problema ngayon. Yung ating mga senador ay napag-usapan ang iba’t-ibang nakikita nating dapat tugunan, dapat bigyan ng solusyon. Ang problema sa trabaho, problema sa pagtaas ng bilihin, paano po natin aayusin yan? Dapat tulungan natin ang maliliit na negosyante upang sila ay makabawi at makapagtrabaho muli,” he said.

He also cited the need to address the education and health system in the country as well as lowering the price of electricity.

For her part, gubernatorial candidate and Palayan City Mayor Rianne Cuevas, who hosted the rally, called Marcos the next president of the Philippines and told her constituents to fully support his candidacy.

“Huwag po nating kalimutan na iboto siya. Ang matalino, ang mabait, ang magiging presidente ng magandang Pilipinas! Bongbong Marcos!” she said.

Marcos thanked the people of Nueva Ecija for their warm reception not only to him but for the whole UniTeam whenever they visit their province.

“Maraming salamat sa inyong napaka-init na salubong na ibinibigay sa UniTeam at sa tambalang Marcos- Duterte,” he said.

“Ngayong papalapit na tayo sa Mayo 9, iilang araw na lang… Kaya po, ako ay natutuwang habang tumagal ang aming kampanya ay dumadami po ang sumasama sa atin dito sa adhikain natin ng pagkakaisa,” he said.

After his visit in Nueva Ecija, he immediately went to San Fernando, Pampanga for another UniTeam rally where he was joined by Duterte.
