Malou Tiquia said on her Facebook page that President Rodrigo Duterte proved his executive experience in handling disasters during typhoon Nina.

"From Midsayap to Catanduanes and CamSur, he was there. Unlike the previous head who was MIA for 3 days or over a week. He also made decisions on the ground, as briefed." she said.

Tiquia said that for once,  the regional offices of frontline agencies were on the ground as the typhoon hit and were immediately out to check damages.

Cabinet secretaries can be reached and had updated data, real time, case in point, DA, DSWD and DPWH. Police and military were also on standby.


She said that from typhoon Yolanda, the government had several leanings such as the roads need to be cleared, non politicos should be members of the barangay so there would be efficient distribution of goods and that assistance is delivered, and victims are not made to line up.



She said that the fact that Duterte refused to give out the goods himself is a point to all politicians waiting to get an opportunity from the disaster.


"Presidential orders were made. Let us see if concerned cabinet agencies will follow through." she said.


Read full statement of Ms. Malou Tiqua:



This mayor from Davao who is now prez proved to all what executive experience is in handling disasters. From Midsayap to Catanduanes and CamSur, he was there. Unlike the previous head who was MIA for 3 days or over a week. He also made decisions on the ground, as briefed.

Several learnings:

1. For once (or because it has been so rare), the regional offices of frontline agencies were on the ground as #NinaPH hit. They were immediately out to check damages. It's not a uniform reaction but there was regional movements. (Take note #Federalist)

2. Cabinet secretaries can be reached and had updated data, real time, case in point, DA, DSWD and DPWH. (Take note, support staff was on hand)


3. AFP and PNP were on stand by (I hope the AFPCOE can be assigned back to responder status. That was a major lesson we should have learned from #YolandaResponse). Clearing roads are important to ensure last mile is reached. Building efforts need to be fast.


4. Prepositioning goods need to further be developed with data science so it is targeted by HH. Data science is also needed in building resilient communities (that is a green frontier where local talents can help)


5. We should really study having non politicos as members of the barangay so we ensure efficient distribution and not according to political association. That victims of tragedy need not line up but assistance is brought to them.


The impact of Duterte landing in Bicol a day after Nina I will no longer discuss, save the index went up for the "mass murderer" (right?). That he did not look kindly at the distribution of goods ("style bulok yan, ayaw na ayaw ko yan!) was on point to all politicos wanting and waiting to wade in.


Key Takeaways: Government is here. We will help you. Get up. Recover fast.


Presidential orders were made. Let us see if concerned cabinet agencies will follow through.
