Social media user Jojo Robles posted an open letter to Vice Pres. Leni Robredo in social media. The post went viral on Facebook.
Recently, Vice Pres. Robredo’s name has been on news headlines and updates. Two of the issues involving the lady vice president is her recent resignation from her Cabinet post and her reaction to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s plane crash joke.
Robredo has recently stepped down from her post in Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) in which the President has previously appointed her as the chairperson.
The decision of Robredo was announced after she received a text message ordering her to ‘desist from attending all Cabinet meetings’. She took to social media all her accomplishments as the Housing secretary.
Based in a previous news report, Vice Pres. Robredo admitted that she was offended by the remark of the 71-year-old President that she better pray for Pres. Duterte’s plane to crash so she could be able to succeed to him.
Furthermore, the report also entailed that the Vice President expressed her wish that Pres. Duterte will be able to overcome whatever illness he has. She emphasized that he was the one elected to lead the people.
Recently, a post went viral on social media after a netizen expressed his sentiments to the Vice President in an open letter.
The open letter was posted on the Facebook account of Jojo Robles. In the post, Robles pointed out the comment of the Vice President in the affairs of Pres. Duterte.
Robles, a columnist according to other reports, told Robredo in his post that she should only choose her advocacy. He pointed out that the problem with the Vice President and her PR strategists is that they believe that it should be every day that they are in media.
Robles further stated that it is not right and that there is no election campaign. He emphasized that she is not the president and the people might get annoyed with her and her camp.
The netizen also told Vice Pres. Robredo that she has actually no work as the Vice President who has no position in the Cabinet so she does not need to be fully exposed in the media.
Furthermore, the post contained the recommendation of Robles to Robredo that she could investigate on the real situations of the people in the mountainous areas so that she may know the real sentiment and needs of the people living there.
He told the Vice President in the letter that she might improve her political skills in that way and concern might grow in her. Robles ended his open letter by greeting the Vice President a Merry Christmas.
The post went trending in social media and has already reached 216 shares in less than two days since it was posted.
Here is the post of Jojo A. Robles:
Dear Aling Leni: Dahil wala kang maibato nitong weekend kay Duterte kasi maganda ang ginawa niyang pagpondo sa college education at pagsibak sa dalawang taga-Immigration, nagkomento ka naman tungkol sa nagyayari sa Aleppo, Syria.
Mahirap talaga ang may full-time PR campaign ka pero wala namang isyung masakyan. So kung anu-ano nalang ang naiisip ng mga propagandista mo na pakialaman. Palibhasa tuloy-tuloy ang sweldo ng mga iyan at kailangan nilang may maisubo sa mga media outlet na kausap mo sa pagpapalabas ng press release mo kaya, hayan, hanggang Syria nakakarating sila.
Konting payo lang, libre, di tulad ng mamahaling bigay ng iyong mga PR advisers: Hindi lahat ng isyu ay dapat sinasakyan. Pumili ka lang ng advocacy mo at yun ang babalik-balikan mo. Kung walang balita, e di wala. Tahimik muna.
Ang problema mo at ng mga PR strategist mo, naniniwala kayo na dapat araw-araw e nasa media ang pagmukukha mo. Hindi naman yun tama. Baka maumay ang mga tao. Wala namang election campaign. Hindi ka naman presidente pa. Baka lalo pang maasar ang tao sayo at sa mga media na kakampi mo.
Wala ka naman talagang trabaho as VP na walang Cabinet post. Hindi kailangan sobrang exposed ka sa media.
Mag-ikot ka na lang sa kanayunan. Alamin mo ang tunay na nagyayari doon at baka malaman mo pa kung ano talaga ang saloobin at pangangailangan ng mga kababayan natin doon. Baka maiprove mo pa ang political skills mo at tubuan ka ng malasakit na di nakita ng karamihan sa mga kasamahan mo sa elitistang haciendero party na sinaniban mo.
Malay mo? Baka biglang mawala si Digong, sang-ayon rin sa pangarap, schedule at plano ng grupo niyo nina Loida, ang iyong matagal nang financier at tagapayo. Mabuti na yung handa ka sa trabaho, hindi yung pa-Aleppo, Aleppo ka lang diyan sa Boracay Mansion.
Pera naman namin ang binabayad pa din sayo e, di ba? Suklian mo naman ng konting trabaho na totoo.
PS: Yung mga Pilipinong abala diyan sa isyu ng Aleppo, mga ka-Dilaw mo yan at dati nang kapanalig. Wala kang bagong mare-recruit diyan dahil nga sayong-sayo na ang mga iyan.
Subukan mong pakialaman ang mga problema ng Pilipinong nandito. Baka matuwa pa sila sayo ngayong Pasko, bigyan ka ng regalo: Ang kanilang tiwala at pagsuporta.
Merry Christmas po, mula dito sa laylayan ng lipunan ng sarili mong bansa.
