Sara Duterte says Facebook post attacking LGUs, pushing federalism ‘never mine’


Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio disowned Friday a Facebook post that blaming the LGUs and pushing federalism.

The said post went viral Thursday night as netizens assumed the post was Sara’s counter-attack to those who criticized his father, President Rodrigo Duterte.


Sara Duterte said “everything” in the post of Facebook page Duterte Guardians “was never mine — from the misspelled ‘Sarah’ to the glaring grammatical errors to the ridiculous syntax or to the whole idea of federalism.”

The mayor earlier opposed federalism as it could worsen areas with political dynasties.

She also said those who shared the post on her supposed support for federalism should be “ashamed of themselves for agreeing to become propagators of fake information apparently manufactured to peddle an agenda.”


“Any form of misinformation, any attempt to fool the public, any move to use me or any other person to push an agenda is a painful counterproductive measure that would only worsen the situation as it would never help the Duterte government win over the deadly virus,” she said in a statement.

The page Duterte Guardians has around 260,000 Facebook followers.

Here is the whole transcript of the said post:

From Mayor Inday Sarah Duterte:

Why are you blaming Duterte for the 200 Billion? HE RELEASED THAT! Blame your LGUs!! This is what you get for having a centralized government. This is why Duterte wanted Federalism but you dumbasses think it’s some sort of Martial Law. Now, you blab your mouth cos you did not feel the 200 Billion? TF 😒😠 Don’t me! This is just cause and effect. You blame the President yet all he knows is that he released it. Imagine how many official heads that the money has to go through before it reaches your hand. A LOT! 😤

Don’t expect that y’all are getting 1 million each or what.
•Testing Kits are expensive.

•Paying for the Doctors and Nurses is expensive even if that’s 500 pesos a day but do y’all understand how many health care workers we have?

•Paying for private establishments so they become homes for PUI how many million is that?

• HOW MANY ISLANDS/CITIZENS DO WE HAVEEE? As per Catriona “not just me but 104 million Filipinos!” CALCULATE THAT IN YOU HEAD!

You ask why I blame the LGUs? Because look at other cities. When the head official does his job properly his people can feel that 200 Billion. Pero kung inyong Mayor diha or unsa kay kurakot aw sorry, usa ka delata ranay makuha ninyo.

I swear after this COVID you’ll see your LGUs buying new cars and properties. Pina #OUSTDUTERTE murag nakasabot. 😠

Analogy: If you go to a shop let’s say H&M unya gisuklian kag sayup sa cashier. Do you blame the CEO of H&M for the incompetence of that cashier? Imo ipataktak ang CEO? Diba di? You instead look for the Manager and blame the cashier! Same rana! Blame your LGU!
