President Rodrigo Duterte has praised Taguig City 2nd District Rep. Lani Cayetano for prioritizing the needs of the elderly.
Duterte made this remark in a speech during the launch of the Elderly Program Center at the Taguig Center for the Elderly.
“What I am really saying is marunong tayong mag-connect (We really know how to connect). The Cayetanos know how to connect. Inuna talaga itong mga ganito (They prioritize programs like this),” Duterte said.
He thanked the city government of Taguig for organizing the event and for taking the initiative to provide for the needs of our senior citizens.

“Senior citizens, as integral members of the Filipino family, deserve utmost care and support after fruitful years of contributing to nation-building,” Duterte said.
“Now is the time that we give back to them by letting them know how grateful we are for having them and by honoring their crucial role in our lives,” he added.
