CEBU CITY – Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte will be in Cebu today to personally thanked Cebuanos for the more than one million votes he garnered in the province during the presidential election.
About 50,000 to 80,000 people are expected to attend the “One Love, One Nation” thanksgiving concert for Duterte’s election victory at the Sugbo grounds in the South Road Properties (SRP) this afternoon.
Duterte received 726,559 votes in Cebu province and 296,246 votes in Cebu City to post a half a million vote edge against Liberal Party (LP) presidential candidate Mar Roxas.
The Cebu City Police Office yesterday assured security measures are in place for the thanksgiving concert although police officials said they expect the Cebu Provincial Police Office to send in additional personnel to augment the security force.
Today’s celebration is divided into two parts. Organizers said there will be a “Halad Pasalamat” at the Plaza Independencia where free medical and dental services, legal consultation and notarization will be offered at 9 a.m to 2 p.m. (Mars W. Mosqueda, Jr.)
