MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III will report on what his anti-corruption campaign has done the past year and tell the country his plans for the next 365 days, when he addresses Congress for his state of the nation address on Monday, Palace deputy spokesperson Abigail Valte said Saturday.

Valte said these were the themes of Aquino’s speech but did not get into the details of the address, saying she did not want to preempt the President’s speech.

“If we’ll recall, the President was elected in 2010 because of his promise of his anti-corruption program among our priorities. He will now show how we have fulfilled that promise in the one year or so that he has been in office,” Valte said on radio.

“Second, he will discuss where he wants to take us in a year’s time,” she added.

Valte said the public would have to wait for these details until he delivers his speech on Monday as Congress resumes session.

    Pnoy when you do the SONA, aside from your claimed ‘achievements’ this year, can you start specifying the “anti-corruption drive” target milestones for next year so that it is measurable?  hindi naman ata maganda na basta ka na lang magsasabi ng ‘achievements’ mo every year without any measurable expectations at basta na lang namin tatanggapin ang mga sasabihin mo.  how can your success be measured if you don’t set expectations and milestones?

    The corruption SONA is laudable. Corruption is the worst cause of public projects’ failures. But the success are more just published but people in remote provinces has yet to feel its effect.

    Politicians still continues to enjoy the embezzlement of infrastructure and other programs funds with no qualms or fear. What they did before is the same as what they do today. Distance from Malacanang and its absence of efficient monitoring grant exemption to these remote politicians from Nonoy’s hyped anti-corruption drive primarily targeting GMA people in the national government.

    Roads are still worse, unpassable during rainy season, bridges collapsing due to inferior construction and materials. Some unfinished projects were reported completed. Bloated estimates and payments. These are just some of the few operations of corruption by some remote politicians.

    They continue owning expensive SUVs for their families, throw parties for their followers and their women, constructed mansions like they have unlimited resources, employ bodyguards or private armies to terrorize people, provided protection to drug lords, etc.

    Noynoy’s corruption drive is only Manila-based. Sorry to say this.

    Report on Anti-corruption campaign for the past year! Hello!! How about his remaining five years? How about poverty, unemployment, cramming pupils and students due to lack of rooms, lack of teachers, continuing evasion of land reform law? It seems that we are just having the same history repeating itself. Why is it so? If we are to put ourselves in a high ground to see everything below what is really happening, then we are convince that the progress we are least dreaming of, will never happen regardless of who is in power.

    I have been overly optimistic that our country would be better after the so-called dictatorship of Marcos. But I am wrong, because the kind of system we have benefits the politicians, big businesses, powerfully connected people, subtle media (under the guise of reporting various issues) that cooperates as long as their ratings will not be sacrifice. media that benefits during election. Ordinary people are mere pawns and at the mercy of this interest group. Every year congress enacts a budget, under the assumption that such resources shall be use to every department objective. However, the budget would merely be utilized due to CORRUPTION. And this is not only happening at the national level, but the amount of corruption is the same  from the Provincial down to the meager resources of our respective Barangays.

    Lets say that corruption happens and we are not the only nation having this kind of problem, But the GREEDINESS is the appropriate word that makes us suffer for what we are now. So, how can we expect a PNOY’s SONA will again give us another hope? And on Monday, a SONA will be delivered and every interest group would again pick up issues to enable then raise any intriguing issues, make comments, praises from PNOY’s supporter, parroting the needs of every Juan De La Cruz.

    Can a SONA minimize GREEDINESS? Can it change the evil motivation of an interest group? to corner the so-called PPP contract? Of course, the commission is included. Where is our moral conviction when we think of a national program without thinking of shaving a big portion of the budget? Our attitude nowadays has eaten up our conscience in favor of money in our deep pockets. How many more Ampatuans (not including the good Ampatuans) will be identified within the present administration? I hope no one. But how about the daily horse trading (in other word Corruption) just to push a better program of government. So once again, this coming budget deliberation various insertions of budget will happen again, And so on and so forth.. So what else is new?

    What is the best way to start again? WE ALL NEED OUR OWN SOUL SEARCHING..And I mean everyone.. from  PNOY down to the lowest level of position Barangay Tanod.. Because in Soul Searching there are three words that must be asked… Your Motivation, your  (Moral) Conviction, Your Attitude.

    We hope the president will consider prioritizing the upgrade/expansion of the railway system around the country.  The railway system as means to move goods (freight trains) are considered more efficient and less costly than using the current road networks that are always wanting for maintainance and safety, and has (the roads) always been seen as instruments of corruption.

    hanggat wala ako nakikitang mga infrastructures for  development needs, mga economic directions di ako bibilib sa SONA. biruhin mo, magtatalak sa sa buong sambayanan ng mga paratang na di pa napapatunayan. at yung mga kapalpapakn ng mga alipores nya di pinapansin at patawad agad ang hatol. kaya ba nitong nakaraang mg linggo walang ginawa kung hindi manira ng manira. nakuryente tuloy sila sa mga bintang nila sa OBispo. pasalamt si penoy , kakampi nya mga yellow journalist and media.

    I believe the public expects more to hear than just battling corruption. 

    The public also wants to hear more about his economic achievements and economic plans.  This is the primary concern of the people as it has direct effects on the citizens. During his one-year in office the prices of basic commodities such as food, oil, electricity, etc. have gone up. There is an impending fare hike due to high gas prices and the coming toll fee increase. The gap between the poor and the rich has widened. Unemployment and poverty remains unsolved.

    What?? Anti-corruption campaign na naman sa SONA? Wala na bang ibang ginawa ang presidente kundi yan lang? Dapat pala nag Ombudsman nalang  siya. Or prosecutor. Or show biz reporter.

    Buti pa ang nanay niya na si Cory. Ang rami raming ginawang mas masama si Marcos pero nag focus siya sa DIRECTION ng bansa natin.

    Tsk tsk tsk.. So kung nandaya si Gloria ibig sabihin si FPJ president natin? Parang Noynoy presidency lang.. panay showbiz…

    To focus on Anti-Corruption achievements & other plans is a good decision by the President to banner his coming SONA rather than trumpeting infrastructures, countryside developments, govt programs, etc. I’m not saying that this government will just keep on working corruption in his entire administration which PNOY has already quite achieved much in his one year of presidency such as:  1.) Starting construction of an international standards of airports in Bohol, Caticlan, etc., 2.) The revival of PNR Train, 3.) More farm to market roads and bridges in remote areas of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, 4.) Electric Power strengthening, 5.) Better disposition of Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) to the poorest of the poor by increasing its budget 3x against the previous administration 6.) The new law created for GOCC’s regulated benifits amidst exorbitants compensations received by its top officers in GMA’s time. 7.) Etc. that the Aquino gov’t is not fond of announcing its accomplishments for the sake of impressing others. 

    Lest we forgot that for many years our country did not reach its highest potentials to be a tiger economy in Asia because primarily of rampant CORRUPTIONS that still exists and becomes a “dominant force” in our society. To make our country move forward its only right to hurdle this “block of apathy attitude” in ourselves that keep on hunted our poor economic conditions for the past decades. Filipinos should realized that CORRUPTION is not an overnight problem to solve, it has already been deeply rooted in our political, economic system and even amonst us private individuals. So its just right for this administration to keep on fighting and trying to even minimize corruptions by persecuting the guilty. No other president’s I know except for PNOY who is very passionate & consistent to end this battle. Instead we should be thankful to him because it is inscripted in his heart that many of us are tired of listening of his litany. But what can we do, the previous administration done horrendous corruptions that cannot be kept?  We should be reminded always, because we easily forgot & forgive. He knows his mission and he knows where we are going. In allevating corruptions, undesireable filipino attitudes, etc.. true progress follows.

     I should say PNOY is doing his job well, sometimes we are just too much in our expetations and judgment on him. Remember, his no superman.

      “Aquino gov’t is not fond of announcing its accomplishments for the sake of impressing others”. And what do you call “anti-corruption drive”? What has it really accomplished?!  May kaso na ba sa court, or kelangan pa nila mag state witness ang mass murderer na si Ampatuan?

      Do your research. The farm-to-market roads and revival of PNR train started in the previous administration. “Better disposition of Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) to the poorest of the poor” And this is good news?? My taxes go to squatters who clog vital waterways and other parasites? Sana nga para sa  SONA i announce niya na tatangalin niya lahat ng squatters sa metro manila matutuwa pa ako.

        By the way, the reason he’s having a SONA is precisely to ANNOUNCE HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS. We need to be impressed. Yung “kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap” idiotic slogan masyadong gasgas na. Kung tama ang logic na yan, bakit mahirap pa rin bansa natin nung Cory Aquino presidency? Kung galit siya sa corrupt, bakit katabi niya si Erap nung inauguration niya?

        “So its just right for this administration to keep on fighting and trying to even minimize corruptions by persecuting the guilty.” Prosecute yata ibig mo sabihin. Hindi naman inaapi ang mga guilty pinarurusahan lang. mas maganda sa vernacular nalang para maintindihan mabuti yung mga sinasabi mo.

        @ lostRunes. For your information, 1) In Corruptions, its GMA who made it this way the gov’t would just want to show to the public of what great damage did by the previous administration, they are not boasting or whatsoever.  2) CCT has been successful in over 52 countries for the past years. 3) Only this year did PNR fully activated and farm to market road is continuous project that this PNOY govt did without corrupting its budget and ensuring accountability 4) Providing assistance to the poorest is a concrete manifestation of allevating their hunger & poverty 5) Zaldy Ampatuan is never considered as state witness as confirmed by DOJ & Pnoy, its clearly just the opinion of those who would like to put this gov’t in bad light.
         
        This government did not even raise new national taxes such as EVAT, etc. which most known economists during the election says that it would be impossible for a new administration not to impose taxes because of our economic liabilities & negative balance. But until now PNOY did not initiate of administering national taxes that would surely be another burden to all of us. Are we not supposed to be grateful to PNOY for holding this even a while?
         
        If we just keep on finding faults and not appreciating even in a small actions of a person then we are not becoming helpful but instead a hindrance. Its commonly called “crab mentality”. Maybe its you who are not doing his homework. Don’t judged easily, so may not be judged.

        “Zaldy Ampatuan, along with Lintang Bedol, may yet get his wish to be a
        state witness. ..against former
        President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, but not in the Maguindanao massacre,
        Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said on Thursday.”.  Thats from this paper, which is not one to put to govt in bad light.

        “Only this year did PNR fully activated and farm to market road is continuous project..” I see. Like Erap taking credit for the MRT which the Ramos administration initiated.

        “Providing assistance to the poorest is a concrete manifestation of allevating their hunger & poverty” To he ll with them, mahirap na nga gawa ng gawa pa ng bata, tapus kung magalit sa mga may pera akala mo kung sinong nanakawan. Hindi lahat, pero marami sa kanila TAMAD. Tinuturuan mo lang sila maging dependent sa government.

        “If we … not appreciating even in a small
        actions of a person then we are not becoming helpful but instead
        a hindrance” Excuse me, taxpayer po ako I have a right to DEMAND a better performance from the president. Kung tatahimik lang ako at hayaan kayong mga I-love-Noynoy-till-I-die fan club magsalita, sana napunta ang kinabukasan ko at mga susunod sa akin?

        Gusto ko pa magkaroon ng utak si Noynoy, at magsabi ng PLANO niya sa bayan, at hindi sumbong ng sumbong tungkol kay Gloria parang batang inapi ng mga classmate na hanggang ngayon PANAY KUWENTO lang.

    @GreenStallion:disqus Though President Noynoy is sincere in his anti-corruption campaign, focusing only on this single issue does not serve the purpose of SONA. SONA is where the President states his accomplishments, visions and plans for the country. If he will only focus on a single issue, the public will perceive that this is only his accomplishment — we cannot even call it accomplishment since the corrupt officials are not yet in jail. Moreover, a good leader has visions, goals and plans (long term/short term) especially economic for the country which President Noynoy is not fully presenting to the public.

    Most of the infrastructures that you have stated-if not all, were initiated by the previous administration such as the farm to market roads in rural areas, PNR rehabilitation, airports, roro seaports, etc.

    If corruption is the central theme of Noynoy’s SONA on monday, I should expect him to endorse to the joint session of congress to pass the Freedom of Information Bill unwatered down w/o delay. W/ government contracts open to scrutiny and w/ transparency through FOI, government contracts are firewalled against corruption. If what he means by corruption is to attack Gloria again and not FOI,I dare say that this administration is on it’s way of devising strategies for their own brand of corruption.

    “Anti-corruption drive gains top Aquino SONA—Palace”
    This goes to show that Pnoy administration is riddled with corruption.
    One year pa lang grabe na ang corruption sa kanyang pamamalakad. That is why he prevented some. But on the other hand, wala pa naman siyang tinatanggal sa kanyang gabinete or kaya ay nacharge sa Ombudsman. Bakit kaya, Pnoy protecting his men.

    If Pnoy is talking about GMA and her men which he is accusing left and right,…that is not Anti-Corruption that is POST CORRUPTION.
    Ika nga ni Madam Pierre Corrie ” An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure” Ginagamot pa ang cancer ni GMA.

    When GMA stole the presidency from Erap back in 2001, I gave her three years to prove that it was not a mistake that I applauded Erap’s ouster . By early 2004, when she decided to turn back on her word that she would not run for president come May, I knew we erred in what was known (and should be forgotten, I may add) EDSA 2. I waited till 2010. There was no way she could be ousted. The little girl had everyone in government wrapped around her little fingers as she showed us how she learned from the mistakes of Ferdinand and Imelda. She did not have to declare Martial Law. She just needed to share the loot with everybody who would be willing to steal for her as we are now already finding out one by one with the various government agencies being revealed as erstwhile piggy banks of the otherwise illegitimate immediate past president. Noynoy like his mother, may be an accidental president but they fulfill the same unenviable task–to clean up after their extremely rotten predecessors. Those who expect a complete clean-up after one year is asking too much. Look, I waited for nine years so that I could feel HOPE again for this country. Things may not be looking up all at once under Cory’s son but I now wake up in the morning with a smile on my face because I know that the guy I helped send to Malacanang is not robbing me blind.

    To enumerate the wrongdoings of one’s predecessor is not vengeance. We cannot just move forward with so many cases unresolved. That precisely is why many crooks continue to make it into government. They rob us blind and we allow them to get away with it. The ones who continue to thumbs down P-Noy just could not get over the fact that he, Mr. least-likely-to be-president, is now in Malacanang.

    Ito ang mali ng Pnoy administration. He is brandishing, announcing to the Pilipino people and the whole wordl that we are corrupt as a race and as a people, coming from the mouth of the President.

    Di ba kung hindi maganda pinapalitan, so when Pnoy assumed the Presidency he changed the whole GMA administration. That is one way of cleaning any corruption. Ika nga bagong laba, hindi bagon bili dahil bagong luma rin ang gabinete ni Pnoy.
    Ipakita na lang niya ang kanyang nagawa hindi yang Corruption ang topic, ang corruption is a moral spiritual perception, depende yan sa interpretation.
    Lahat ng ahensiya ng gobyerno kahit sa buong mundo, america man o england lahat yan corrupt because of political power which has an advantage against ordinary people.

    Yan anti corruption tema ni Pnoy panahon pa yan ni Marcos,already redundant thing, that is political.
    There are more important things to do than this corruption thing.
