Public officials receive an advise to take economy class even if their agencies could afford first class or business class flights from President Rodrigo Duterte facing reporters at the Davao City International Airport, October 27.
Duterte said “lahat ng gobyerno— taga-gobyerno, ‘pag wala kayong pera, pasensiya kayo. You ride the economy class. Kapag may pera ang opisina ninyo pasensiya rin kayo, you ride the economy class.”Aside from the cheap flights reminders, he also gave his remarks that he doesn’t want to hear news of any government employees spending time in casinos specially that it is prohibited by law.
An order from him might be given to the National Bureau of Investigation to conduct lifestyle check to suspected corrupt public officials.
Duterte swore that he will be harsh to the government officials who will be found corrupt as a cure to the corruption problem in the bureaucracy.
