President Benigno Aquino III apologized to the public for the inconveniencies of Friday’s traffic that prompted students and workers to just return home.
“We ask for forgiveness of the public,” Aquino said on the sidelines of the Mindanao Inclusive Agribusiness Program launch at Davao City.
Once he returns to Manila, Aquino vowed to “personally see” what happened and what caused the traffic.
“And I don’t want to rely on the reports anymore. I want to see the videos,” he said.
“We don’t want to exacerbate problems like increasing prices of food,” he said.
