Former president FVR or Fidel V. Ramos is one of the biggest endorsers of the former Mayor’s presidential candidacy. Now he turns to be his greatest critic. However, he pleads to the president to hear him out because people at his age are near death. He made various demands that are contrary to the administration’s policies.

[VIDEO]: Courtesy: GMA NEWS, Inulan muli ng batikos ang administrasyong Duterte mula kay dating Pangulong Fidel Ramos. Kabilang sa mga pinuna ni FVR ang kampanya kontra-droga at ang ugali raw ng pangulo na tinawag niyang “tokenism.
Ramos said that the present administration resorts to “tokenism” or only making a symbolic effort. “Tokenism is described by Ramos as pretending to do something but nothing happens. He said that the country’s enemy is tokenism. FVR mentions that he hopes the president listens to older people like him because they are near life’s end.
War on Drugs is Correct
To paralyze the illegal drugs trade is correct by going after big drug lords. The killings of small-time users and pushers are wrong. They must be rehabilitated. It is not known yet if Ramos agrees with the arrest of Senator Leila De Lima who is accused of coddling drug criminals detained at the Bilibid prison during her time as Justice secretary.
South Korean Businessman Killing
Ramos also condemns the killing of South Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo. He is killed by rogue policemen inside the government-controlled Philippine National Police’s headquarters in Camp Crame. He stresses that South Korea is still one of the best partners of the country and yet the authority allows policemen to kill Jee inside their own Camp Crame.
Health, Peace Talks, and Bigger EDSA Celebration
FVR suggests that the President should be transparent on his health status like when he is the president. He orders a spokesman to announce his condition the moment he enters the hospital. Peace talks must also be continued until it reaches a closure. It is now temporarily abandoned. His last demand is a bigger EDSA celebration next year. Perhaps, to coincide with his newly launched Biography?
