Vice President Sara Duterte on Sunday committed to continue doing “honest service” to Filipino people in the incoming year 2024.
In her New Year’s message, Duterte said she wants to welcome 2024 with a positive and progressive outlook for a better future for the nation.
“Ang taong 2023 ay isang makulay na taon para sa ating bansa at pati na rin sa buong mundo. Maraming istorya ng tagumpay, pagsubok, at pag-asa, ngunit bilang isang Pilipino, tayo ay nananatiling malakas at matatag,” she said.
(2023 was a colorful year for our country and the whole world. There were many stories of success, challenges, and hope, but we remained strong and steadfast as Filipinos.)
“Kaya naman ang ating pananaw sa kinabukasan ay mananatiling malinaw: na patuloy tayong maghahatid ng serbisyong tapat. Patuloy nating paiigtingin ang ating hangarin para sa kapayapaan at kaginhawaan ng bawat pamilyang Pilipino. Hindi kailanman tayo magpadadaig sa anumang pagsubok na darating,” she added.
(That’s why our vision for the future remains clear—-that we will continue to deliver honest service. We will continue to fuel our desire for the peace and comfort of every Filipino family. We will never surrender to any trial that comes our way.)
Duterte also extended her New Year greetings to Filipinos, wishing that everyone will have a renewed hope, strength, and determination to work hard and unite for the good of the country. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
