DAGUPAN CITY – The vice presidential tandem of president-elect Rodrigo Duterte  said he would accept any government position that would be offered to him under the Duterte’s Administration.
“Kung ano ang gusto ng Panginoon sa akin sa vice presidency o hinde at kung ano ang ibibigay na trabaho ni Mayor Duterte at ng ating kababayan tatangapin ko yan kahit walang position,” Senator Alan Peter Cayetano told this paper when asked if he would not win the vice presidency would he accept a post like the Department of Interior & Local Government after the one year appointment ban in case the Davao City mayor offers it to him.
Cayetano, a member of Duterte’s transition team, is one of the favorites to be the senate president and was offered by Duterte to head the Departments of Foreign Affairs or Justice.
For several years, Cayetano had been shuttling back and forth the country to help the marginalized sector through his Presyo-Trabaho-Kita (PTK) program.
In Pangasinan, he gave an average of P150,000 to every marginalized sector like transport group and fish vendors to alleviate their plight and prevent them borrowing from usurers who dangle a 5-6 or 20 percent interest a month money credit.
Cayetano not only give monies for free but adds another tranche if he sees the recipients have invested it wisely for their benefit.
“Alam mo naman meron akong proyekto na nakakatulong sa ating kababayan all over I won’t mind continuing,” he said.
PTK was a “passionate” program of Cayetano after he won the 2013 senatorial election where he could personally address the daily problems of the Filipinos in dealing with inflation, unemployment, and low income.
PTK, he said, is also his advocacy to fight against any and all forms of inefficiency, graft and corruption.
