“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 Davao City’s mayor Duterte wins the presidency.

Cayetano to accept cabinet post from Duterte
By Mortz C. Ortigoza
DAGUPAN CITY – The vice presidential tandem of presidential front runner Rodrigo Duterte disclosed he would accept any government position that would be offered to him under the Duterte’s Administration.
For several years, Cayetano had been shuttling back and forth the country to help the marginalized sector through his ballyhooed Presyo-Trabaho-Kita (PTK) program.
In Pangasinan alone he gave an average of P150 thousand to every marginalized sector like transport group and fish vendors to alleviate their plight and prevent them borrowing to usurers who dangle a 5-6 or 20 percent interest a month money credit.
Cayetano not only give monies for free but add 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”.
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.
