On November 27, 2015, Duterte delivered a speech in the same venue during the Munato Festival and 23rd Foundation Anniversary of Sarangani a few hours after his lawyer filed his certificate of candidacy for president in Intramuros. In that speech, the Davao City mayor vowed that he will build a law-abiding, God-fearing and comfortable nation if elected president. Duterte also said that “corruption has to stop” and “criminality has to go.” He made it clear he would not change his ways in dealing with drug dealers and criminals. Duterte reiterated these on Wednesday before thousands of local officials and families who erupted into wild applause. (Tres Besana/ SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
