Ben Ranque, a known supporter and Undersecretary of the Department of Energy (DOE), said the caravans were initiated in Cagayan de Oro primarily to convince Sarah Duterte to run for resident, and Digong to run for Vice President respectively.
“We do this because we want continuity of President Rodrigo Duterte’s legacy.” said Ranque.
He said President managed to initiate various reforms in Mindanao, aside from the successful drive against illegal drugs.
He added that President Duterte’s fight against the insurgency is also gaining grounds “not to mention the Build Build Build programs.”
Ranque said that “we Mindanaoans should take pride on how Sarah runs Davao City and President Duterte runs the country.”
He said “we should take pride of these two leaders from Mindanao so kailangan natin sila para ipagpatuloy ang kanilang mga nasimulan.”
Speaking of the Dynasty Law, Ranque said that although the Philippine Constitution does not allow “political dynasty” they still need enabling laws.
“Hindi issue and Dynasty dahil walang enabling law that prohibits Dynasty.” Ranque explained.
He said: “Ang issue ay mabuti kang Dynasty.”
Ranque said that the “Run Duterte Run 2022” officially started in Cagayan de Oro City while the “Run Sarah Run 2022” started nationwide.
Businessman Robert Anastacio Neri said he with the help of some groups have started organizing the “Run Sarah Run 2022” nationwide.
Neri, who is also waiting for an endorsement for him to run Mayor in the town of Medina in Misamis Oriental.
On one hand, Mr. Ferdinand Bernasor said the first caravan was organized in Davao City with the participation of 50 motorcycle riders and 75 vehicles—and continuing three hours of caravan.
Bernasor also said they also signed covenants with various groups to strengthen their campaign.
“We have also forged alliances with other groups nationwide,” said Bernasor.
