(GRRRRR!) HELLISH!

 

GIVEN the severe punishment being endured daily by millions of motorists and commuters due to hellish traffic situation in Metro Manila, there is an extreme urgency for the incoming Duterte administration to look for and introduce quick yet effective solutions.

EXTRAORDINARY COMMITMENT

However, there is no need to give incoming President Rodrigo Duterte emergency powers as proposed by some quarters.

Rather what is needed is an extraordinary commitment and dedication especially by the people he assigned to address the transport woes.

These newly appointed officials led by Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade should not forget that they are there to serve…

SOME guys have all the luck.
