The general public was stunned when the President announces that a trustee of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos has opened talks with him to return some alleged hidden wealth secured by the Marcos to protect the economy. It is not surprising that Rep. Imelda Marcos, his widow is clueless about it. His last will and testament clearly state that the said resources are for the welfare of the people. This got nothing to do with the inheritance of his family.

The brilliant President that the Philippines ever had has gone through a lot of misjudgments. Nonetheless, if one really scrutinizes his actions, it is not difficult to analyze how he protected the people even beyond death. He was aware of the tendencies of human nature that even his own family is spared from the direct possession of the said wealth. He appointed a trustee that is certified by the Central Bank, World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund.
Livelihood, Education, and Healthcare
They must be used to fund livelihood projects through entrepreneurship and scholarships or free education from primary to tertiary education. Healthcare, disability, and retirement benefits are amongst the priorities of the late president. The strongman secured that through his will. That is why Bongbong Marcos will never fail to make that happen if given the chance.
Demand in the Manifestation
Since the President is very vocal in reviving FEM’s agrarian and irrigation projects and has continued economic relationship with China through infrastructure projects, the right time for the disclosure of such wealth has finally come.
The trustee as mentioned by the President sees the right opportunity in this administration because of its genuine projects for the Filipino masses despite the deficit spending. This is one offer that a people’s leader cannot say no to regardless of possible political condemnations. Filipinos can be certain that Du30 would always decide on the majority’s welfare.
