President Rodrigo Duterte recently visited Pampanga to eat chicken and egg in the midst of bird flu outbreak in the province.
“I came here just to eat the chicken and the egg and the baluts to assure the public that it is safe to eat them,” Duterte said.
Joining Duterte in a boodle fight were Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol, and Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda.
The agriculture department got a high praise from the president.
“I commend Secretary Piñol and the other agriculture officials for their quick and decisive response to contain the bird flu outbreak in some parts of Pampanga and Nueva Ecija,” Duterte said.
“Our goal is clear and simple: Put the industry firmly back on the path of high growth and progress so that they can contribute to our nation’s food security for economic growth.”
