First batch of dressed chicken from Duterte arrives in Marawi

Amid their counter-terrorism fight to liberate Marawi City, government troops can find comfort in indulging over everyone’s favorite—chicken meals.

This was made possible through President Rodrigo Duterte’s vow to send 12 tons of chickens to the uniformed men in Marawi.

The first batch of dressed chickens that were supplied through Duterte’s initiatives has arrived in the war-torn city, Department of Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol announced.

“In the past, soldiers, marines and policemen fight in the field with only canned goods and dried fish as their meal ration,” Piñol said in a statement. “The supply of chicken will continue for as long as the fighting men are still in the battle field, not only to boost their morale, but mainly to provide them more nutritious food.”

The supply of chicken will be distributed to members of the Army, Marines, and Philippine National Police combatants fighting in the siege.

Piñol said the first 2,459.3 kilograms or 51 sacks of whole dressed chickens have been delivered to Campo Ranao on Sept. 16.

He added the first batch of free chickens was donated by a Davao-based breeder farm, but the next shipments will be paid by the Duterte administration.

“Under President Duterte, they will enjoy a limitless supply of adobo, tinola and fried chicken,” Piñol said.

The Filipino Times previously reported that the purchase of chickens also aim to assist businessmen in the poultry industry, who suffered a decline in demand because of the bird flu outbreak in Pampanga.

“All the chicken in bird flu-affected areas were actually killed and disposed,” Piñol assured.
