Lacson on Duterte signs free tuition law: 'It only shows where President Duterte’s heart really is'

President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday has finally signed the bill granting free tuition in state universities and colleges.


Lawmakers and Filipinos rejoiced and applauded Duterte. Especially, Senator Panpilo Lacson stated that by signing the free tuition to all state universities and colleges, it showed were Duterte heart is.

"It only shows where President Duterte’s heart really is," Lacson said.

Lacson also said that he was proud of Duterte for still going against the advises of his economic managers.

"Obviously, he went against the advice of his economic managers. For one, I know there’s money in the national budget to fund the free tuition law."

Read Lacson full statement:
It only shows where President Duterte’s heart really is. Obviously, he went against the advice of his economic managers.

For one, I know there’s money in the national budget to fund the free tuition law. As what the Senate had collectively accomplished under the 2017 GAA, we managed to realign P8.3 billion from the pork allocations of congressmen to SUCs through the Commission on Higher Education.

That is how we intend to do it again under the proposed 2018 budget.

God bless the Philippines and its deserving students who can’t afford higher education.

Meanwhile, other lawmakers such as Senator JV Ejercito, House Deputy Minority Leader Harry Roque, Bayan Muna Representative Carlos Zarate, and Senator Bam Aquino lauded President Duterte.

"I find objections made by his economic managers contra the passage of the law counter-intuitive, treating it as if its proponents have advanced the measure as a magic pill that will cure all of the educational sector's ills," he said. "It is but the first yet necessary step towards reforming the system," Roque said.

“I wish to thank the President for signing the free college tuition into law,” Aquino, a member of the Liberal Party said. “Pagkatapos ng ilang dekada, batas na ang inaasam-asam ng napakaraming pamilyang Pilipino na libreng kolehiyo. Estudyante, magulang at pamilyang Pilipino ang tunay na bida ng batas na ito," Aquino said.
