But despite of all the challenges that he encountered on his a little more than 130 days in the office, Duterte proved that he is undoubtedly man of his words. At the back of all his antics and foul words is a solid effort to put the country back on its track.

Save More. Pay Less. Send Through Rewire Now!

Let’s take a look on what the President already accomplished within his more or less 4 months of being the country’s Commander-in-Chief.
