Once again, outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay displayed his down to earth nature during the farewell boodle lunch with his security entourage who have served him from start to finish. He was grateful of their service and his thank you speech took only a minute – as he started shedding tears that brought everyone especially the women into deep emotion.
Binay has turned the Vice Presidential Department into a pro-poor institution that prioritizes the needs of the under privileged in terms of providing public services in medical, education, livelihood, burial, ofws in distress and even family crises support.
He expressed his wish to the one next in line and to the remaining staff of the Office of the Vice President to continue serving the poor. He was indeed the good president that the Philippines never had!
