A Department of Transportation (DOTr) official hit back at actress Angelica Panganiban’s tweet telling unnamed government officials not to sleep on their jobs as typhoon Rolly pounded Bicol and parts of Luzon on Sunday.
“Ano ng plano? Tulog na lang? Kilos kilos naman para sa sinumpaan para sa bayan at mga Pilipino…” the Kapamilya star said in a tweet on Sunday.
On Sunday, DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddess Hope Libiran couldn’t help but react to Angelica’s tweet, saying in a Facebook post: “Ma’am, wala pa nga po kami halos tulog. ?
“Alam n’yo po ba ang dapat ginagawa kung may nararanasang kalamidad ang bayan? BAYANIHAN po, hindi HILAAN PABABA.
“Just saying. Hindi po ako galit. Puyat lang. ?✌️”
While it wasn’t clear to whom the tweet was addressed, Angelica was bashed by netizens who took it to mean that she was referring to President Duterte as #NasaanAngPangulo trended on Twitter on Sunday.
In his press briefing today, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that while Duterte was monitoring the situation from in his hometown Davao City on Sunday, all government agencies were in red alert.
In a separate press briefing, Senator Bong Go said that the president is scheduled to visit within the day Legazpi City and other areas badly hit by the typhoon.
