AS FAR as at least five Cebu mayors are concerned, President Rodrigo Duterte was able to deliver much of what he promised to the nation during his last five years in office.
The mayors of three cities and two towns were interviewed by SunStar Cebu before the President’s State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday, July 26, 2021.
For Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella, Duterte did his best to deliver his campaign promises during his term.
“The National Government’s ‘Build, Build, Build’ is visible here in Cebu City. Road projects like the Metro Cebu Expressway, the ongoing Cebu BRT project, are just some of these,” Labella said.
“I would like to ask the President to focus more on solving our traffic and flooding problem here in Cebu City. Our Cebu Bus Rapid Transit project, which is being implemented by the Department of Transportation, has been suffering delays,” Labella said.
“I hope to see this much-needed project being seriously implemented. This, together with other integrated and intermodal transport projects in Metro Cebu,” added Labella as he recalled Duterte’s promise in a speech delivered during the 2020 Sinulog Festival that the National Government will fund more infrastructure and transportation projects in Cebu.
