The candidacy of him running for president is a maddening farce. What is his platform? Yes, he did good improving the country’s transportation infrastructure. However, the seeds of many scandals to rob the national treasury were under his PLD leadership. The captain of the ship is responsible for the ship’s operation, management of the crew, and legal compliance. Just because Lionel has changed ship to the FP does not hide the lasting damages that occurred during his PLD watches.

It is troubling to see fanatics still clinging to him.
