It’s been a very controversial week in the media and government service industry. Recently, the current DSWD Chief Rolando Bautista has drawn flak from radio announcer and TV personality Erwin Tulfo. With alleged threatening remarks and distasteful words against the former General, DSWD Chief Rolando Bautista recently released an official statement in reaction to the media personality’s public apology.

Several people, PMA Alumni, soldiers, officers, government employees and NGO’s showed stern support for DSWD head honcho and on his recent pronouncements, he has set a couple of conditions for him to accept the media personality’s apology.

It includes publication of the apology, in half page advertisements of leading newspapers for visibility. Upload/Publish his apologies on social media platforms and air it on leading radio stations in the country. He also would like to have the newscaster to donate at least Php 300,000 to each of 19 organizations he included on his statement, in the hopes of also helping them as well.

DSWD Chief Rolando Bautista was extremely thankful for the men and women who have shown support in the past few weeks and expresses high hopes the media personality would consider his conditions.

DSWD Chief Rolando Bautista was a former Lt. General who now leads the organization in aftercare and rehabilitating of drug personalities, and as of recent, does supervision for the enforcement of commitments indicated in the IRR for children in conflict areas, work in social pension projects and welfare of indigenous people. He also lead ground work during the Marawi siege as commnder of the 1st Infantry Divisions Joint Task Force Marawi and as Chief of the Philippine Army.

If his requests be met, we all hope for an amicable settlement that would win more for the people they serve.
