Reklamo mo, i-text mo! Duterte to have public service show on PTV-4

President Rodrigo Duterte is set to appear on his own television show on state-run PTV-4 where he will publicly read and address people’s complaints about corruption in government agencies.
In his speech at the National Banana Congress in Davao City Friday (Oct. 7), Duterte said the program’s format would involve him reading texts from people about red tape or any difficulties they might have experienced in dealing with public officials.

“Now there is a Malacañang TV, PTV-4, so may program ako dyan. I’ll give about, every morning, one hour. Lahat ng Filipino na nakatikim ng… whether it’s in the permit sa office of the mayor, or an electrical clearance or way of right already paid but unimplemented, i-text mo na lang,” he said.

Duterte said he would have none of the corruption existing in obtaining government permits, especially since he has ordered agencies to promote ease in getting such documents that having a “shopping list” or checklist of requirements a person needs to bring should have become mandatory by now.

Addressing the public, he then said: “If you are made to go back and forth, mag-text lang kayo. No more names. Magtext lang kayo, ako na ang bahala.”

Duterte, however, did not say when his TV show would start airing or what its schedule will be.
Last June, Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said they are mulling a national version of Duterte’s popular Sunday morning TV show, Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa (from the masses to the masses), which aired when he was the mayor of Davao City.
