Pilo Hilbay says Duterte not ‘powerless’ before Bayanihan Bill
Abogado Pilo Hilbay maintains that there are a lot at President Rodrigo Duterte’s disposal prior the passage of the Bayanihan Bill. The abogado said that he should not frame it that he was helpless before it.
Sir, don’t make it appear as if you were powerless prior to the Special Powers Law given by Congress.
You had all powers to impose travel ban on China, inform Filipinos, & prepare all institutions of government as early as January. You had enough funds.
YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING.

Hilbay said that these special powers from Congress is not the action that will solve COVID-19 especially when he had every chance to impose a ban against China and prepare all institutions against the pandemic. The abogado wrote that he chose not to do anything before it got to this scale.
