The electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos may again face another delay due to some divisions in the Supreme court – but one thing is certain. Many advocates in the society come forward to defend the late President Ferdinand Marcos citing his pro-poor policies. Marcos’ demonization can’t stand a chance against active players in the economy. Take the case of CREBA National Chairman Charlie AV Gorayeb who commends Marcos for his presidential decree on socialized housing. He is surely an advocate in making Filipino lives better. This happens during the 888 News forum recently at the Marco Polo Hotel during an ambush interview.

CREBA National Chairman Charlie AV Gorayeb Explains the Marcos Era PD On Socialized Housing
A Home for Every Filipino
The Chamber of real Estate and Builders’ Associations, Inc. or CREBA announces its 28th National Convention to the 888 News Forum attendees. It aim to provide a home for every Filipino. Their target is to award 10 million homes by 2040. The convention is from October 9 to 12 at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Lahug, Cebu City.
CREBA is Pro-Administration
CREBA commits to protect and promote the interests of its members. It harmonizes the conflicts in busines, government and homeless society. The national interest is paramount to them. The association seeks to be an effective and dynamic partner for national development with the real estate industry being a major pump-primer of the national economy. CREBA has become the government’s stongest ally. This is in terms of their national and affordable housing programs.
Financial Support to the Low-Income Earners
Advocate Gorayeb reminds the public that the government mandates a 270 billion per year funds from the social security system, security insurance, PAG-IBIG, and the Marcos era presidential decree that obliges trade banks to provide 25% of a housing unit’s loanable amount.
No Other President is as Good as Marcos
Chairman Gorayeb finally testifies that ex-President Marcos is by far the only president who takes care of the poor through his era’s policies and reforms. There’s no doubt for him that he is indeed the best president the country ever had. His sector would indeed welcome his son, Bongbong Marcos as President Du30’s replacement should the electoral protest results favorably for him.
